Just off West Bayou Parkway, high above the banks of the Vermillion River, rests a timeless A. Hays Town-designed home. This extraordinary house is the result of a landmark collaboration between two masters of their crafts ─ the legendary Louisiana architect Town and lauded interior designer, Dan Bouligny, who challenged the acclaimed architect to fashion a residential masterpiece using Queen Marie Antoinettes Petit Hameau at Versailles as his inspiration.The stunning result is a home that is magically majestic, yet comfortable; and historic in reference, yet clearly of its time. With more than 5,500 sq ft of breathtaking living space, it is a home that functions as easily as the setting for a party of 200 as it does for a quiet evening for two. Entering through an arbor set with hand-wrought gates, you leave the outside world behind to find a private court with tinkling fountain, and it is from here that the work of the two masters begins to captivate, a charming entry porch of massive old wood timbering; oversized glass doors and windows fronting a cathedral-ceiling salon of perfect proportions; a stair hall with freestanding circular staircase silhouetted by a massive two-story window facing a small private side court; a banquet sized dining room; a chefs kitchen and keeping area; a gem-like library, and complete first floor master suite with his and her baths and closets. Across the back of the house, a stone-floored loggia, accessed from keeping area, living area, and master bedroom looks out over terraced gardens and walkways winding down to the riverfront. This home is filled with Town trademarks featuring tall, oversized wooden windows, vistas in every direction, antique brick, wood, slate, and stucco materials. Every detail is considered, and the list of custom features far too long to list, but some of which are: -Imported French antique floor tiles. -Louisiana antique pine and custom designed woodwork, millwork and trim. -Fixtures by the finest manufacturers including P.E. Guerin, Sherle Wagner, SubZero. -Exquisite fabric wall coverings. -Antique fireplace surrounds in both the living and keeping rooms from France and Italy. -Antique pine beams in living, master, kitchen, breakfast and solarium.
