The home at 19615 S. Muirfield Circle in the Country Club of Louisiana is a traditional southern offering with a timeless quality that sets it apart. Located in prestigious Parcel 18, the home sits on a shaded one-acre lot, making it a rare find in CCLA.

Parcel 18 is one of the premier spots in all of CCLA, according to Robin Hebert, the Coldwell Banker ONE agent marketing the property. “Many of the founders had lots here,” she said. The lots are generally bigger in Parcel 18, the trees are mature, and the homes are stately and grand.

When you pull up to this week’s featured home, you first notice the immaculate landscaping. The lawn is amazing, given the amount of shade on this lot. A brick-edged driveway passes two parking pull-ins on the way back to the two-car garage and boat port.

Crossing the brick front porch, guests enter the foyer through wide entry doors topped by a sunset transom. Ceilings soar to 20 feet in the foyer, which has a custom staircase winding up the left wall. The formal dining room is through a cased opening to the right and features a 12-light picture window and a 9-light chandelier below a ceiling medallion.

Cased openings lead into the living room, a comfortable place with French doors and a wall of glass viewing the pool courtyard and back yard. A granite fireplace is flanked by walls of cabinetry and bookshelves.

The outdoor spaces visible from the living room are special. The heated pool has a spa with two water features, and a porch floored in Pennsylvania Bluestone leads over to an outdoor living room and kitchen. A masonry fireplace is flanked by wood boxes in this outdoor living room, which is adjacent to the granite kitchen. The outdoor kitchen features a grill with a custom copper hood. A sugar kettle fountain and the pool spa generate soothing sounds of moving water in this serene outdoor space. A deep, shady yard is behind the pool.

The kitchen, keeping room, breakfast room and a granite bar are where family activity is centered. The kitchen has 3cm Taj Mahal quartzite on the island and countertops, and an 9-light fixture adds special illumination to the can lighting. A paneled SubZero perfectly matches painted custom cabinetry, which has self-closing drawers. A Wolf cooking system with double ovens, six burners and a griddle is below a custom hood and pot-filler in a glass-tile backsplash.

The breakfast room is over in a corner with two walls of windows. Upscale lighting packages and elegant window treatments will remain with the home.

The keeping room has a masonry fireplace flanked by faux-finished cabinetry and topped by a television and speaker boxes. A big walk-in pantry and the home’s laundry are just behind the kitchen along a short hallway to the garage.

The master wing of the home has a guest bedroom and full bath as well as a big home office directly across from the master bedroom. The office has oak flooring and walls of built-in shelving and cabinetry.

The carpeted master bedroom has a sitting cove at one end with views of the back yard. The travertine master bath has dual granite vanities topped by custom mirrors. Between the vanities are the entrances to two large closets. The walls in this elegant master bath are plaster, and the walk-in shower is made of slab granite.

Three large bedrooms and a bonus room are located upstairs. And finally, a whole-home generator keeps everything cool and lit when the power goes off.
