Centurion Place is an established Baton Rouge development off O’Neal Lane known for large homes on large lots. The home at 16539 Centurion Ave., a five-bedroom Acadian style offering that has been completely remodeled, sits on a shaded half-acre lot.
The whole first floor of the home is floored in ceramic tiles that look just like wood floors. These floors are becoming popular because they’re easy to clean and hard to destroy.
A winding brick walkway leads from the driveway up to the slate front porch. Originally built in 1978, the home has more than 5,300 square feet, which means every room in the house is large. Custom stairs to the second floor begin in the wide foyer, as do the “wood-look” ceramic tile floors.
To the right through double doors is the home office, which has a wall of built-in shelving and windows dressed in plantation shutters. The left side of the foyer has a cased opening to the formal dining room, which has wainscot walls with picture frame molding above.
Colors in the home are the grays, whites and blues that are so popular today. Several rooms in the home look like they stepped right out of a “Pottery Barn” magazine. It’s a bright and airy home, this Centurion Place offering.
The kitchen has Carrera marble countertops and a butcher block island. Cabinets are painted, and about half are lighted with glass fronts. Subway tiles are the backsplashes, making this kitchen even brighter. The appliance package includes a stainless refrigerator and a microwave-over-stove combo. An interesting accent wall in the kitchen is made of brick pavers, and the ceiling is beaded board. Can lights are in the beaded boards, and upscale lighting is above the island.
The master suite has a vaulted ceiling and a wide white brick fireplace for cold winter nights. The bedroom is huge (25 x 19 feet) with three big windows. The quartz master bath is long, with more tile floors and two big closets. Dual vanities with custom mirrors are separated by a make-up desk. The master bath also has subway tile walls and a custom walk-in shower.
Back on the other side of the house, a hallway with windows to the back yard leads into a guest suite with a full bath. The house wraps around the center courtyard, which has a brick firepit. A two-car garage and boat port are behind the house. The driveway is gated, and there is plenty of extra parking space near the garage.
The great room is also large with a sack-finished brick fireplace. Windows with plantation shutters line the inside wall facing the courtyard. A wet bar on one side of the fireplace also connects conveniently to the kitchen.
Like the rest of the rooms in the home, the laundry has plenty of room for extras. There’s a quartz countertop as well as a sink and work desk. The laundry room also opens to a long, climate-controlled storage room that is currently being used as a pet quarters. The pet room is floored in more of the easy-to-clean ceramic tile.
Up the custom staircase are two more bedrooms serviced by a hall bath.
