Completely renovated with the finest materials and craftsmanship, the home at 2211 Fairway Drive provides an opportunity for a new owner to get into a great Baton Rouge home on one of the most desirable drives in the city.
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 Baton Rouge Country Club golf course.
Today’s home sits on a large lot at the corner of Fairway and Brookwood drives. 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 outdoor spaces could be the biggest draw of this beautiful home. Two courtyards – one with a pool and one with a four-tiered brick and iron fountain – intersect in a corner at a big outdoor kitchen with an L-shaped bar that has a Bull grill, a double stainless sink and a chilled beverage center.
The pool juts under the roof near the outdoor kitchen, allowing people to swim right up to the bar area.
The seller has moved out and the home has been completely remodeled with amenities like dirty-top antique pine floors and antique bricks. The old bricks begin at the front door in the foyer, and the dirty-top pine starts just to the right in the den. Custom stairs head upstairs from the foyer to a pair of bedrooms with adjoining full baths on the second floor.
More of the exquisite pine flooring is just ahead in the sunken living room, which has a corner bar with a sink and icemaker. On the opposite wall is a wide painted brick fireplace with an arched firebox. Two sets of French doors in the living room lead outside to the fountain and pool courtyards. Nearby is the formal dining room, which is a large area with a chandelier and more dirty-top pine flooring.
The kitchen has a professional Wolf cooking center with 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 fountain courtyard. A hallway from here leads back to a family room with unlimited uses. A wall of mirrors dramatically increases the perceived size of this already large and versatile room. Make it a home gym, make it a dance studio or just make it the gathering spot for the family. Big windows in this room provide big views of the pool.
Upgrades in the home are numerous, including doors and windows by Andersen and a new roof with 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.
Storage is abundant in this home. The master closet, for example, has dressers and lots of hanging space. Just behind the master closet is a card/cigar room with an exit to the side yard. Convenient to the pool is a full bath with a shower.
