Just 16 residences are located in Beaumont Lane, a private and exclusive development at the end of Daggett Avenue near South Acadian Thruway. One of those 16 homes – a beautiful contemporary offering on more than a half-acre lot – is now available.

The 8-year-old home at 2256 Eliza Beaumont Lane presents a great chance to get into one the city’s most exclusive neighborhoods. The interior of this contemporary style home, which has influences from New Orleans, was designed by Colleen Waguespack. Extensive landscaping from Ryan Cole covers every inch of the .76-acre lot. It’s an oasis of green in the heart of the city.

You realize Beaumont Lane is a special place when you drive up to the entrance at the end of Daggett Avenue and see the brick columns welcoming guests. Driving up to the property at the end of the street, you’re greeted by a tall, white contemporary style home with iron gates and courtyards.

Walk through the front courtyard and up four steps and you’ll find yourself passing under massive entry doors directly into the living room. Bleached oak floors and 12-foot ceilings are here, as is a double-sided fireplace that is shared with the formal dining room. There’s a half-bath and a small bar in one corner with a sink and a wine refrigerator.

Three tall French doors lead out to the back porch, which is home to an outdoor living room with a fireplace and an outdoor kitchen with a JennAir grill. On the opposite side of the home, off the keeping room, there’s another porch that views the side yard and its fabulous landscaping, which took more than a year to complete.

The kitchen and keeping rooms overlook this side porch. This area, like rest of the home, has tall windows that allow in lots of natural light. A massive antique beam crosses the ceiling, separating the two rooms. White Carrera marble tops the counters and a large center island with a sink and refrigerated drawers. A DCS commercial cooking center has 6 gas burners plus a griddle and double ovens below. A stainless SubZero is in the butler’s pantry, and so is an icemaker. To be sure, this kitchen is for a serious cook.

The home has lots of interesting and innovative passageways. Massive pocket doors, for example, are between the kitchen and the formal dining room. A big rolling barn door in the master bedroom conceals a small study.

The master bedroom also has floor-to-ceiling corner windows and a granite fireplace for upcoming cold winter nights. The master bath is white and bright, a nice contrast for the black tile floor. A 6-foot Japanese soaking tub is adjacent to a wide, pebble-floored shower with multiple water sources and body sprays. Double vanities with toe kick heaters are on the opposite end of the bath.

Upstairs, a guest suite has a bedroom and a full bath, along with a small balcony that overlooks the front of the property.

With manicured landscaping and the ultimate in privacy and exclusivity, this home is a one-of-a-kind property right in the heart of Baton Rouge.
