The home at 19210 South Lakeway Ave. is not your average home on your average corner lot. This dramatic residence in the Country Club of Louisiana has vaulted ceilings, marble and travertine floors, a flowing floorplan and a sparkling new pool overlooking a large back yard.
Privacy abounds in this exclusive setting. Inside and out, the home has the finest materials and craftsmanship. Cross the entry loggia into the great room and you’ll find a stone fireplace, a princess balcony and stunning chandeliers that rise and lower with the push of a button.
The downstairs master suite has a sitting area overlooking the pool, and the master bath has a convenient exit directly to the pool courtyard, although there is a full bath outside by the outdoor kitchen as well. The master bath also has 6-foot soaker tub and the ultimate shower: a 10-jet HydroMassage system with a lighted waterfall, steam and multiple water sources. The private master courtyard gets morning sun, perfect for that first cup of coffee and the newspaper.
You can also catch up on some reading in one of the home’s two libraries – one upstairs and one down – or you can work out in the mirror-walled home gym just off the master suite. No more health club dues for the new owner of this house.
The kitchen features a big stainless SubZero refrigerator, an identical SubZero freezer, a Gaggenau steam oven, a four-burner Wolf gas cooktop with a griddle and stove, a Gaggenau ceramic cook top, two dishwashers and a Miele automatic coffee system. The bar just off the formal dining room has a wine cellar & a wine cooler, plus an ice machine. The top row of custom kitchen cabinets is lighted, with glass fronts. A separate butler’s pantry is nearby.
Two more large bedrooms are up on the second floor, plus an upstairs library with a view of the great room from a princess balcony. The upstairs section has similar materials and craftsmanship, and was certainly no afterthought. How often do you see upstairs bathrooms with corner jetted tubs?
Out back, the wide covered porch has an outdoor living room with a fireplace, perfect for cool nights and warm friendships. And the FLO Grills outdoor kitchen is superb. Four tall arches frame the multi-level pool courtyard, which is surrounded by a custom wrought iron fence. The sparkling gunite pool has four fountains that arch into the center of the pool. In fact, arches are a central theme of this home inside and out.
Finally, all custom window treatments – including Roman shades and plantation shutters – will remain. The home has a whole-house generator for power outages, irrigated landscaping, tall baseboards, a sound system inside and out, lots of attic storage, solar panels on the two-year-old roof, three HVAC systems, an attached three-car garage, lots of built-ins and a laundry room with an exterior door.
