The home at 7649 Settlers Circle is a five-bedroom offering on a large lot in The Settlement at Willow Grove. The location off Perkins Road near Bluebonnet Boulevard is super convenient in the heart of town with community amenities, retail space and restaurants. The home has an open floorplan with lots of space for entertaining inside and out.
“We love all of the neighborhood amenities in Willow Grove,” the current owner says. “Where else in the middle of Baton Rouge can you walk to a private pool, pond, park, play area, retail space and restaurants?”
The former Parade of Homes showcase house has high ceilings with beautiful antique beams, eight-foot interior doors and an abundance of tall windows that allow natural light to filter into the home. The antique pine ceiling beams are also used as headers above passageways.
The home’s floorplan is inviting and wide open. The living room, formal dining room, breakfast room and kitchen are all part of the home’s central core, and the place where most family gatherings take place.
Hardwood flooring is used in much of the downstairs, including the living room, which has lots of windows and a wide fireplace flanked on the right by built-in shelving and cabinetry.
The kitchen has a granite center island, a stainless refrigerator, double wall ovens and a six-burner gas cooktop below a pot-filler and custom hood. Cabinetry is tall, custom and painted. There’s also a butler’s bar with an icemaker, painted cabinetry, a beverage cooler and wine racks.
The master suite has three large windows and more hardwood flooring. Double doors lead into the elegant marble master bath, where double vanities are across from a walk-in shower and a soaker tub is below a window.
Three of the home’s five bedrooms are downstairs, while the two upstairs bedrooms share a Hollywood bath. Up the custom staircase, there is also a den/kids’ area at the landing. A mudroom is conveniently located near the laundry and the exit to the garage.
The home’s outdoor spaces are designed for entertaining. The rear covered porch has an outdoor living room with a woodburning fireplace at one end and an outdoor kitchen with a grill and sink at the other. A tall wood fence around the back yard provides privacy.
The home is immaculately landscaped, has lots of storage, is energy efficient and wired for surround sound, according to the agent marketing the property.
“This is a stunning home in a desirable neighborhood, great for entertaining family and friends,” said Jessica Antilley, with Latter & Blum. “It has a fabulous floorplan with tons of natural light. The home has traditional parking and a nice-sized back yard with a covered patio that has a fireplace and grill.”
Antilley said The Settlement at Willow Grove is a “great neighborhood that features a 14-acre park, two stocked ponds, an amphitheater, a basketball court and a fabulous pool. You can walk to shops and restaurants too.”
