Fairway Drive connects Old Hammond and Jefferson Highways on the east side of the Baton Rouge Country Club. It’s one of those long-established Baton Rouge residential thoroughfares with large lots and upscale houses, many of which back up to the country club golf course. The home at 2211 Fairway Drive is a great opportunity to get into one of the most desirable spots in the city.

The seller has moved out and just reduced the price. Filled with amenities like dirty-top antique pine floors and antique bricks, this four-bedroom, five-bath home has 4,503 square feet of living space.

A circle driveway brings guests up to the home on the Fairway side, while another driveway leads up to the home’s two-car garage on Brookwood. The house wraps around a center fountain courtyard and a beautiful pool near a covered outdoor kitchen.

The foyer is floored in antique bricks around a custom staircase to the second floor, where two bedrooms are connected by a Hollywood bath with two vanities, a tub and a walk-in shower.

Right off the foyer is a den with windows to the front yard. Left is the formal dining room, which is a large area with a sizable chandelier and dirty-top pine flooring.

Ahead, and down one step, is the living room. Here you’ll find a masonry fireplace flanked by built-ins on one wall. Back in the corner, there’s an L-shaped bar with a sink and icemaker. Two French doors lead out onto the brick fountain courtyard.

The kitchen is a gourmet cook’s delight with a professional Wolf cooking center that has double ovens, six gas burners and a griddle. There’s also a beautiful hammered copper farm sink, a Wolf microwave, a big stainless SubZero and stained cabinetry. Marble slabs top the counters, and a pot-filler is in the travertine backsplash behind the stove.

Across the kitchen bar is a nice breakfast area with wainscot walls and three doors to the center courtyard. A hallway from here leads back to an exercise room/children’s den with big views of the courtyard. A wall of mirrors dramatically increases the perceived size of this already large and versatile room.

Upgrades in the home are numerous, including doors and windows by Andersen. The roof is new and has slate ridge caps.

A guest suite with a full bath is on the master wing of the home. More dirty-top pine floors are in the master bedroom, which has a set of French doors to the pool courtyard. The master bath has dual vanities in an L-shaped pattern, a tall leaded glass window, a walk-in shower and a convenient exit to the pool area. A five-foot whirlpool tub completes this spacious and functional bath.

The outdoor spaces of this home are fabulous with the L-shaped layout of the fountain and pool courtyards. The fountain is up by the house while the pool is situated at a right angle to the fountain courtyard. A full outdoor kitchen and bar are in the corner.

The home is also a smart home with Nest thermostats hooked to a new air conditioning system, according to Heather Kleinpeter, the agent marketing the home for Burns & Co. Realtors. Kleinpeter and her team will keep the home open today from 2-4 p.m., so don’t miss the chance to see this beautiful offering on Fairway Drive.
