The home at 1155 Bayou Paul Lane in St. Gabriel is a four-bedroom Acadian style offering on 1.6 pristine acres not far from LSU and downtown Baton Rouge. With plenty of room to spread out, this home offers a peaceful and quiet lifestyle not far from the city.
Stained concrete floors are used throughout the home, which was built using many of the LSU LaHouse guidelines for design and construction. The home did not flood in 2016.
Bayou Paul Lane starts at River Road and crosses Nicholson Drive before turning into Manchac Road. The home is just a 20-minute drive up Nicholson to the LSU campus.
A long curbed aggregate driveway leads up to a two-car guest parking pad in front of the home. An elevated front porch has six squared columns and four windows, typical features of a south Louisiana Acadian style home.
A hallway from the entry door leads past a bedroom, left, and the home office, right, back to the home’s main living area, an open space comprised of the kitchen, formal dining room and living room. The office off the foyer has cypress crown molding, cypress baseboards, cypress window trim, and is accessed through double cypress doors.
Three bedrooms are located on the left side of the hallway leading back to the family areas. The first bedroom has a full bath on the right side of the hall, while the other two bedrooms share a Hollywood bath setup.
At the end of the hall, the room opens wide to the kitchen, dining room and living room.
The living room has a big masonry fireplace, with bricks up to the ceiling. A speaker system is installed in the ceiling serves the whole family area.
A 16-foot slab of granite tops the kitchen’s island, which has a double stainless sink at its center. This long island serves to separate the kitchen from the living room without isolating the cook. The stainless appliance package is from Frigidaire, and includes a microwave-over-oven wall combo, a big professional refrigerator and a professional grade stove.
The formal dining room is just to the side of the living room, and has a window to a nice screened porch in back. The wide porch views a butterfly garden, the back of the property and a gazebo. It’s the perfect spot for bug-free evenings or for that morning cup of coffee and the paper.
The master suite also has a private exit to the screened porch, as well as excellent views of the rest of the property through double windows. Double doors lead into the master bath, which, like the rest of the home, has stained concrete floors.
The bath features a soaker tub below stained glass and a long counter with two vanities below custom mirrors. The master closet is large, with two dressers and lots of hanging space.
The home’s laundry has a window, sink and folding tables. The laundry also connects conveniently to the hall guest bath, which has a frameless glass shower.
The exit to the home’s two-car garage and workshop is via a breezeway off the kitchen.
If you’re looking for a place with room to spread out, but you don’t want to be far from LSU or downtown, you should check out this beautiful Acadian style home on St. Gabriel’s Bayou Paul Lane.
