It doesn’t take long for the tall New Orleans style home at 2141 Rue Beauregard to impress. Step inside the home and the foyer soars to 28 feet with a fabulous curving wrought iron staircase winding up the wall. A brick archway leads into the living room, giving guests a breathtaking first impression.

The amenity sheet is long in this custom home in Beauregard, a one-street luxury home development off Old Hammond Highway near Jefferson. Upscale lighting packages, Old St. Louis bricks, top drawer appliances, a two-level home theater and old-growth walnut flooring all come standard in this beautiful home.

Attention to detail here is evident, and craftsmanship is impeccable. Three Bevelo gas lamps in front greet guests driving up to the home, which has a New Orleans style balcony above the entrance. Interior doors are 8 feet, baseboards are tall and a sound system has speakers inside and out.

The living room, floored in wide walnut planks, has a stone fireplace and views of the pool courtyard and outdoor kitchen. To one side is a slate patio with a gas fire pit, perfect for getting cozy around a warm fire during a cold winter evening. The pool has a brick and slate surround with a big brick spa and a shallow splash deck. At the far end, there’s a brick wall with waterfalls splashing into the pool. The granite outdoor kitchen overlooks the pool from a tall gazebo constructed with a West Indies flair. Included are a SubZero mini-fridge, an icemaker, a stainless sink and a Dacor professional grilling system.

A surround sound system with 13 Sonance perimeter speakers in six zones means the music doesn’t have to be blaring for everyone to enjoy it.

“This home was designed with entertaining in mind,” said Linda Barbay, the Burns & Co. agent marketing the home.

The elegant formal dining room has a deeply coffered ceiling, a crystal chandelier and three windows that allow in lots of natural light. A granite butler’s pantry has a copper sink, a wine refrigerator, an icemaker and glass-front cabinetry.

The kitchen, keeping room and an informal dining area are all floored in Old. St. Louis brick and have great pool views. The cabinetry is solid Cherrywood, all the way up to the ceiling. Counter tops are 3cm granite. The appliance package includes a five-burner Wolf gas cook top, dual Wolf ovens and a microwave, a warming drawer, three sinks including a prep sink on in the island, and instant hot water. A paneled SubZero refrigerator perfectly matches the cabinetry.

The two-level media room is downstairs off the keeping room and is completely soundproofed. The HD projector has a 110-inch screen and eight-speaker surround sound.

The master bedroom is across the hall from a guest suite and full bath. A wide sitting area in the master bedroom views the pool, and one of the room’s long walls has built-in shelving for personal treasures to be displayed.

The marble master bath has a soaker tub, a huge steam shower and sauna, dual vanities and a big closet with lots of dressers, cubbies and hanging space. Past the master suite at the end of the hall is a nice home office with a built-in credenza and more Cherrywood cabinetry.

Finally, up the beautiful custom staircase, there are two more large bedrooms that are serviced by a full bath. An exit to the front balcony is at the landing.
