With unique finishes and West Indies influences, the home at 6415 Overton Drive is a 4,323-square-foot custom home from LeJardin Development and Remson-Haley-Herpin architects. The home has its own unique style and fabulous outdoor spaces perfect for south Louisiana entertaining.
Craftsmen spent weeks on the unique plaster walls and faux finishes alone inside the home, which is located in Burden Estates off Moss Side Lane.
The entrance to the home is through a front flagstone courtyard, where there is a saltwater pool with a Caretaker automatic pool cleaning system. Swim-out benches are located along two walls, and a brick half-wall with lush landscaping and four waterfall features completes this fabulous pool. A beautiful outdoor living room and outdoor kitchen overlook the pool. Add in the half-bath, and it’s the perfect setup for outdoor entertaining.
Inside the home’s massive entry doors, the master wing is to the left and public areas to the right. First up is the formal dining room, which has French doors to the pool courtyard and a cased opening leading into the living room.
Venetian plaster walls, travertine tile floors and 12-foot ceilings create an elegant and sophisticated look. A fireplace with built-ins on both sides is along one wall, while more French doors lead to the courtyard.
A butler’s pantry with a beverage center, an icemaker and lighted glass cabinetry connects the dining area to the kitchen, which a gourmet cook’s delight. A paneled SubZero matches the painted cabinetry, and a 6-burner Wolf cooking system is below a custom hood and pot-filler. Thermador supplies the double convection wall ovens, as well as a warming drawer, and the dishwasher is from Bosch.
The nearby keeping and breakfast rooms are warmed by a fireplace with built-ins to the left. A wall of windows and French doors to the back allows in lots of natural light.
Behind the kitchen is an exit to the two-car garage and workshop. A guest suite with a full bath, the home’s laundry and a small office are also nearby. A dirty-clothes chute from the second floor drops conveniently close to the laundry.
A larger office is just off the foyer and has a custom built-in desk and cabinetry, exposed beams and a wood ceiling. The home is also gifted with abundant storage space, including a room below the staircase. A surround sound system pipes music into most areas inside and outside the home. There are three HVAC units, two for the downstairs and one for the upstairs.
The master suite is special, with antique pine flooring reclaimed from a long-ago basketball court. French doors lead out to the pool, and double doors lead into the master bath.
The master bath has travertine floors with marble insets, a 6-foot Jacuzzi tub below a window, dual marble vanities and an oversized corner shower with a handheld unit. The master closet, complete with built-in dressers and shelving, runs behind the length of one whole bathroom wall.
Upstairs, meanwhile, there are two bedrooms each with a full bath. There’s also a playroom that, along with one of the two bedrooms, has access to a wide slate veranda overlooking the pool courtyard. Relaxing under three ceiling fans, you can look out over the back yard, which has grapefruit, orange and satsuma trees. There’s also a small computer nook on the second floor, perfect for kids needing to do their homework.
