The home at 7015 Goodwood Ave. is a stylish traditional with oak plank and antique brick floors. The home’s location – Goodwood Avenue near its intersection with Keed Avenue – is just minutes from Towne Center and Our Lady of Mercy.
The four-bedroom home is a story and a half, with two bedrooms and a Hollywood bath upstairs. The master suite and a guest suite with a full bath are on the home’s first floor.
The traditional style home has a pair of dormers facing the front yard on Goodwood Avenue. The front yard has a brick-edged parking pad under a massive oak tree. Don’t confuse Goodwood Avenue with Goodwood Boulevard, which is further east. This stretch of Goodwood Avenue has lots of trees surrounding homes with old Baton Rouge charm and character.
Walking into the home, the first thing you see is stained oak flooring that stretches into the living room ahead and left into the formal dining room. The dining room has a large chandelier and a big picture window facing the front yard.
Triple crown molding runs along the ceiling in the dining room and living room, where a wide fireplace is flanked by built-ins on both sides. The living room has an exit to a brick-floored sun porch that overlooks the back yard. To the right of the foyer, a guest suite has its own full bath.
The master suite is in back, with views of the rear yard. The large master bedroom has three big windows and double doors leading into the tile master bath. A long master closet with built-in dressers at both ends is at the far end of the master bath. There’s also a 6-foot whirlpool tub below a mirrored surround and sunset transom. This bath is already large and bright, but several big mirrors really amplify its size. Big mirrors also top the dual vanities, one of which has a make-up desk. A walk-in shower is just inside the double entry doors.
Back in the public areas of the home, a butler’s pantry separates the formal dining hall from the kitchen. Painted glass-front cabinetry is in the butler’s pantry as well as the kitchen. Old brick floors are used in the family area, comprised of the kitchen, a small breakfast area and the keeping room.
Granite tile tops the kitchen counters and the center island, home to a five-burner Dacor cooktop. A wine refrigerator is in the lower kitchen cabinetry, and a huge stainless GE Monogram Series refrigerator will remain, according to Laura Dupree with KDK Capital Region Realty. There’s also a big walk-in pantry and double wall ovens from Frigidaire Professional.
The keeping room and kitchen area make up the heart of the home, and a speaker system in the ceiling keeps the party going. Just on the other side of the keeping room is an office with its own half-bath, which is near the exit to the home’s three-car garage. Exiting the house here, there’s a breezeway to get you into the garage without getting cold or wet.
Meanwhile, a brick and aggregate courtyard has an arbor that overlooks the back yard. Tall bamboo makes the 6-foot privacy fence seem even taller. Brick planters run across the west wall of the home, waiting for spring flowers to be planted. A separate brick planter contains a large sugar kettle fountain that provides patio visitors with the soothing sounds of splashing water.
The home has a three-car garage, plus covered boat storage out back. And there’s also a whole-home generator for when the power goes out.
