The stately home at 30534 Cypress Glen Drive is a hidden gem in the back of Cypress Park Estates in Denham Springs. The home sits on a tree-shaded lot adjacent to the neighborhood lake, a tranquil setting with moss-draped cypress trees and a footbridge. The home has 3,905 square feet of living space, plus a fabulous pool courtyard with a spa.

The back porch by the pool has motorized screens that rise and lower to keep the bugs away at cookouts, and there is a

spiraling iron staircase at one end leading to the second floor veranda.

The home also has immaculate landscaping with a satellite-based sprinkler control

system that knows not to water the yard when rain is coming e_SEnD what’ll they think of next?

The tall brick and stucco builder’s home is near the cul-de-sac at the end of Cypress Glen Drive, located off Dunn Road just north of Denham Springs.

Double entry doors with decorative steel welcome guests into the home’s foyer, floored in stained concrete that transitions to smooth hardwood flooring in the living room. The formal dining room to the left is also floored in hardwood.

The central living area of the home has excellent views of the porch and pool, which has a brick-walled deck with

waterfalls as well as a round brick spa. Fortunately, the iron fence that surrounds the back yard and pool doesn’t disrupt views of the lake next door. Views from the

veranda are the best of all.

The living room has an extremely tall faux-stone mantle over a fireplace that does double duty on the back side in the kitchen. The kitchen side of the fireplace is brick, with a hearth below and an interior gas lamp above. There’s lots of granite in the kitchen: on the island, on the counter tops and on a bar that separates the kitchen from a breakfast area overlooking a front fountain courtyard. Cabinetry is sinker

cypress, and the appliance package is stainless, including a five-burner gas cook top and a microwave-over-oven combo.

Behind the kitchen, down a short hall, is the walk-in pantry, an arts & crafts room, a half-bath and the two-car garage with a finished floor. A mancave/poker room is above the garage.

On the other side of the split floor plan is the master suite and the fourth bedroom/guest suite. The master has the same hardwood floors as the living room, an exit to the pool courtyard, a fireplace with a TV connection above and an arched window with a nice lake view.

Through double doors, the master bath is spacious and elegant. Granite is on top of her long vanity and makeup desk as well as his vanity. A corner whirlpool tub flanked by white columns is topped by a stained glass window. More stained and leaded glass is on cabinetry at the end of her

vanity. The bath also has a large walk-in shower with a rain head and body sprays, and there are two master closets with dressers and shoe shelving.

Take 23 steps up a custom, curving iron-and-wood staircase and you’ll find a cute-as-can-be art room for a princess, as well as a large game room with a bar and wine refrigerator.

There’s an exit from the game room to the wide veranda up here, as well as two more bedrooms with a full bath. All rooms on the second floor except the bath have wood floors.

This is a beautiful property in Cypress Park Estates with lots of custom features and amenities. And the lake views are free.

The home will be kept open today from 2-4 p.m., so don’t miss your chance to see this custom Livingston Parish residence.
