The home at 2019 South Woodlawn Ave. in the Pecan Grove Estates development in Gonzales is a tall Acadian nestled on a huge corner lot with plenty of oak trees. If you like to entertain, a private brick patio and elevated deck in the big fenced back yard might be right up your alley.
The home sits at the corner of South Woodlawn Ave. and Evergreen Street. A white picket fence surrounds the back yard, which has a covered brick porch and patio leading to an elevated deck off the master bedroom. The four-bedroom home has nearly 3,800 square feet of living space, including a vaulted living room with a marble fireplace.
The home’s front elevation shows a brick sidewalk leading from a circle driveway up to a brick and aggregate front porch below two wide dormers. Eight sets of French doors line the porch while six white columns stand guard along the landscaped front yard.
Entry to the home is through a pair of leaded-glass doors into a foyer with a custom wood stairway running up the left wall. Oak planks are the flooring of choice, and upgrades have been installed in the kitchen and all baths.
First up on the right side of the foyer is the formal dining room, which has French doors to the front porch and a 15-light chandelier for illumination. Ahead is the vaulted living room, which has three more sets of French doors to the back yard. A marble wood-burning fireplace is flanked by built-ins at one end of the living room, which is below a second-floor balcony overlook. When you’re headed towards the kitchen, stop by the corner bar for a drink. There’s a mini refrigerator and glass-front cabinetry in the bar.
The kitchen has a 3cm granite island, a five-burner Dacor cooktop, a microwave/oven wall combo, a GE Profile refrigerator and a surprise in one corner: a spiral staircase shortcut up to the second floor.
The nearby breakfast room has three windows that view the patio and back yard. Behind the kitchen, a hallway takes you to a powder room, the laundry, a den that could easily become an office, and an exit to the two-car garage that loads on the side of the house.
Back on the other side of the triple split, a guest suite has its own granite bath. The master bedroom has a faux fireplace, more oak floors and double doors leading into the travertine master bath. The entry to the bath is between large vanities below custom mirrors. The master bath also features a tall walk-in shower and a 6-foot soaker tub.
Back in the foyer, the custom stairway has oak treads that already have rods if the new owner wanted to install a runner up the steps. At the landing is a long hallway that overlooks the living room. At one end of the balcony hall is that spiral staircase. At the other end of the balcony are two bedrooms that share a full bath.
The home is located conveniently off Interstate 10 in Gonzales, which has easy drives to both Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
