The home at 3706 Jolly Drive in Stanford Place has been transformed from a nice older home into a contemporary showplace of style and design. The three-bedroom, three-bath home is new from the wall studs out, and from the new wood floors to the ceiling above.

Everything in the home – HVAC, wiring, security, lighting, insulation, plumbing, floors, windows, doors – is brand new. The home is designed with a three-way split floorplan, with all three bedrooms having a full bath. The rest of the home is primarily a huge open area at the center, perfect for entertaining or quiet nights with family.

Just about all of the flooring in the home is ceramic tile or wood planks, and all of it is new. Guests enter the home through a brick-walled courtyard into the home’s large central space, which is made up of the kitchen, dining areas and the living room. There are no walls in this big space, so it could be arranged however the new homeowner wants.

The contemporary kitchen overlooks the heart of the home, and has been completely updated with “White Ice” granite countertops, glass tile backsplashes, painted cabinetry with spice drawers, a stainless farm sink with upgraded fixtures, and a 6-burner Thermadore cooking unit. A rolling barn door conceals the walk-in pantry, completing the look in this beautiful kitchen.

The master suite is rear left in the house, complete with new wood floors and a huge closet with lots of shelving and built-ins. Another rolling barn door is the entry to the tile master bath, which is floored in tile and features upscale, contemporary décor.

The Sedona Loft freestanding soaker tub is served by a tankless water heating system. Mirrors have not yet been installed above the dual granite vanities, but that’s so the buyer can select their own. The same goes for the shower, which is waiting for the new owner to select the glass. The shower has a rain head, a hand-held unit and a third water source.

When some homes are “renovated,” that can mean that the kitchen and master bath have been redone, but not much else. Not here. Not this home. Everything, and I mean everything, is new.

The front door opens near the stairs, which have a cool blend of contemporary metal and wood. The handrail on the right side of the stairs is aluminum above steel cables, and the left handrail is a wooden handrail worthy of the best A. Hays Town design. It might sound a little odd, but it absolutely works well together.

At the top of the staircase, the room opens into a loft, again with new wood floors. A long storage hall wraps around three sides of the loft, providing plenty of space to store seasonal things.

Out back, there are two small patios and a rock grotto with a fountain. There’s a two-car garage as well as an aggregate parking space along the wide driveway.

If you’d like to see this beautiful contemporary Stanford Place home for yourself, Nedra Loftin with The Baker Agency will keep it open today from 2-4 p.m. Don’t miss this chance to see this awesome “transformation” close to downtown, LSU and University Lake.
