Garden District of New Orleans meets the best spot in Watercolor! This exquisitely built home is on Cerulean Park and steps from the beach and all the amenities. Designed by architect Eric Watson, the home features ionic style columns on the front porch that invite you into a spacious foyer with black slate tiles and an elegant staircase. Living room and dining room have 14' ceilings and old world crown molding with custom mahogany doors from France. The dark stained oak hardwood floors are in impeccable condition. A first floor master with his and hers closets AND bathrooms makes one floor living easy. A wainscoted library across from the living room is the perfect place to watch a movie or cozy up with a book. The kitchen has honed granite countertops and custom cabinetry providing great storage for all your cookware. A five burner gas range with 1 Â½ ovens, wine fridge and an adjoining butler's pantry with wet bar make formal entertaining a breeze. The second floor features four large sized bedrooms, each with a true ensuite bathroom, so the privacy of each guest is assured. The spacious 2nd floor foyer walks out to a porch that affords views of Cerulean Park. The third floor has a library with built in bookcases and plenty of natural light. A full bath is also located on the third floor. A large "bonus" room can serve as a playroom for the kids, or a media room for all. An enclosed tower room surrounded by windows and featuring a cathedral ceiling offers gulf and lake views as well as the roofscape of Phase I of Watercolor. The back garden features a commissioned tile work "Meditation Circle" by Barbara Balzer, a garden house and a patio for grilling. The carriage house is one of the most unique in Watercolor. An elevator from the garage makes getting groceries and luggage up to the living area so easy. The carriage house has a true living room with fireplace, a separate bedroom and attached bath and a sizable kitchen with built in cabinetry. With two car garage spaces, parking pad space for 3, and the adequate street parking around the home, you can accommodate all the friends and family when they visit this exceptional beach home. Come see the quality this home exudes and envision how to put your personal stamp on a very special home.
