The home at 10634 Preservation Way in The Preserve at Harveston is a classic southern style offering with hardwood floors and a 30-foot screened side porch perfect for entertaining. Located just off Bluebonnet Boulevard, the home is an easy walk to the community post office, clubhouse, gym, pool and nature trail.

The home has a two-car, alley-loading rear garage, which means you never see cars in a driveway in front of this beautiful home. Guests can park in pullouts along the street and walk up the brick sidewalk and two steps up to the entry, which features a leaded glass door with a transom above.

Stepping inside, smooth hardwood flooring stretches into the den ahead and into the formal dining area to the right. The dining area has a chandelier and a pair of 12-light windows topped by three-light transoms. The home’s tall windows allow lots of natural light to filter inside.

The den has a remote-controlled gas-log fireplace topped by a wood mantle with dentil molding. Built-ins are located on either side. The cabinet on the right side has shelving, while the one on the left is an entertainment center.

A bedroom, currently being used as a home office, is to the left of the entry hall. This room has more beautiful hardwood floors. Just ahead, a custom staircase leads to the second floor, where a bedroom, an upstairs living room with a full bath and a bonus/media room are located.

The bonus/media room could be used as a fourth bedroom. Access to the front veranda is via the upstairs living room. This wide veranda has really nice views of the sparkling neighborhood lake you circle around when entering the development.

The home has eight-foot interior doors, and the quality of materials and craftsmanship is obvious. The granite kitchen, for example, has a cherry wood island with a double stainless sink. A wine cooler and icemaker are in the counters. Double rows of painted cabinetry stretch up to the ceiling, and there’s a big walk-in pantry with motion lights that come on automatically when you walk in with an armload of groceries. A five-burner Frigidaire cooking system is below a pot-filler installed in subway tile backsplashes. The stainless refrigerator is from LG.

The kitchen is just a few steps from the screened outdoor living room and dining area. This long side porch is the perfect spot for entertaining, completely private and no bugs allowed. There’s a gas grill, a television and an entrance to a storage room off the garage. Just down from the kitchen is a drop-off area in a short hallway to the garage.

The master bedroom has more hardwood flooring and double doors leading into the tile master bath. Dual marble vanities are below custom mirrors and a ceiling fan. An oversize walk-in shower has a bench, but the highlight of this bath has to be a 6-foot soaker tub installed below a beautiful leaded glass window. The large master closet has lots of hanging space, shoe cubbies and a jewelry rack.

The home is wired for surround sound inside and out, and five security cameras keep watch around the home’s exterior.

The Preserve at Harveston is a great location just off Bluebonnet Boulevard. It’s convenient to LSU, downtown and just about everything else. If you’d like to see this elegant home for yourself, Liz Sherman and the team from Pro-Sold Realty will have it open this afternoon from 2-5.
