The Preserve at Harveston is a development known for its outdoor lifestyle, including walking and bicycle trails, a community pool and playground. If you want more private outdoor activity, the home at 10734 Bird Song Drive has a very private patio with a fireplace and outdoor kitchen.

This week’s home was at one time a model home for The Preserve at Harveston, located off of South Bluebonnet Boulevard between Nicholson and Burbank drives. A brick sidewalk leads up to the immaculate Tyler Watson offering, a “smart” home with four bedrooms and three baths in more than 2,800 square feet of living space.

A bonus room upstairs would be perfect for teenagers, or it can be counted as the fourth bedroom since there is a closet and full bath.  

“The Preserve at Harveston offers a lifestyle like no other in the Baton Rouge area,” according to Ginger Maulden, the Coldwell Banker ONE agent marketing the property. “It is known for outdoor community spaces that feature walking/bike trails, a garden area, and outdoor cooking and playground areas around the pool.”  

Beautiful wood flooring is used in most of the home’s open living areas, Maulden said. Since it was a model home, it includes lots of extras, she added.

The living room has French doors to the rear patio and outdoor living space. A white brick fireplace is on the opposite wall. The kitchen and breakfast room are crossed overhead by a big antique beam in the ceiling.

The kitchen has an abundance of painted cabinetry, granite countertops, a long center island and a stainless appliance package. Atop the cabinetry is a row of lighted glass-front display cabinets. Subway tile is used on the backsplash above the gas cooktop, and an oversized pantry is nearby.

The home’s office is complete with wall to wall shelving, ideal for displaying books or family photos, Maulden said. The master suite is just off the office in the split floor plan. Two other bedrooms are downstairs, and the fourth bedroom is upstairs with its own bath. she said.

The master suite is a private retreat near the home office. Double doors lead from the master bedroom into the tile master bath, while a ceiling fan is overhead. Dual marble vanities in the bathroom are below a single huge custom mirror with sconces. A free-standing soaker tub is next to a half-walled walk-in shower.

This “smart” home has systems that allow the owner to control the alarm, speakers and door locks remotely, Maulden said, adding there is also a keypad to govern the system.

Meanwhile, a tall white brick wall keeps things private in this home’s brick-floored outdoor spaces. The brick floors extend out to a small patio, while gutters overhead take the roof’s rainwater elsewhere. There is a fireplace with a television above, and a gas grill is located along the back wall. A speaker system installed in the ceiling provides sound for the party. It’s not a huge space, but it’s got everything you need for quality entertaining.

The Preserve at Harveston has a beautiful club house, a pool, a hot tub, walking trails, lakes, a playground and a community garden.
