The home at 18020 Harbour Town Court sits on a quiet cul-de-sac in the Country Club of Louisiana, where luxury living is second to none in South Louisiana. A gently sloping roofline gives the front of the home an interesting elevation, but wait until you see what’s in back.

The home’s large fenced back yard has a Russell pool with cool decking, a Care Taker self-cleaning system and five splashing fountains pouring in from a brick-walled planter. An Old St. Louis brick porch watches over the pool area, which is framed by lots of green spaces inside the fence. The home has a copper gutter and underground drainage system as well.

An aggregate and brick sidewalk steps up from the cul-de-sac to the home and through the leaded glass front entry doors. Inside, the formal dining room to the right and the living room straight ahead are floored in beautiful antique pine floors. From the foyer, you get a peek at the pool courtyard out back through the French doors and windows lining the living room wall. On another wall, a marble fireplace keeps things warm in winter, and a hideaway wet bar with an icemaker is opposite the fireplace.

The kitchen, flanked by a breakfast room and a cozy keeping room, is a prime gathering spot in the home. There’s a big, irregular-shaped granite island with a four-burner gas cook top, and Old St. Louis brick floors are an elegant — and virtually maintenance-free — choice. The warm cypress cabinets contrast nicely with the granite counters, and are coordinated with the big SubZero refrigerator/freezer. There’s also a double oven and microwave, as well as a large pantry. A full butler’s pantry separates the kitchen and the formal dining room.

The breakfast room is in a nearby corner, with lots of windows to the back porch and pool. The keeping room has a fireplace with a cypress mantle and matching built-ins on either side. A guest wing with a bedroom and full bath is on the front side of the house. A hallway leads to a large laundry room and a half bath on the way to the 3-car garage.

The home’s office is situated next to the master suite, which has a big bay window set-up to view the pool and back yard. The marble master bath is quite large, with a big travertine shower and a 6-foot whirlpool tub. In this bath, there are two vanities, each with side counters at right angles. Beveled-edge mirrors top both vanities. There is a pair of master closets, both with dressers and lots of shelving.

Out back, the Old St. Louis brick porch has exposed wood beams and columns. Wiring is present for a speaker system, and the home has surround sound in the living room, keeping room and master bedroom. Above the garage, the home’s second floor has a sitting room at the landing and two bedrooms serviced by a Hollywood bath. One of the bedrooms has access to a balcony overlooking the back yard and pool.

The amenity list is completed by a sprinkler system, outdoor lighting, a security system, a new roof and new windows.
