Baton Rouge & Prairieville Realtors
Picture it; the year is 1956, and a young couple with three children has chosen a lot in the middle of Baton Rouge with the most beautiful live oak growing in what will eventually be their backyard. 1265 Normandy Drive. They are about to acquire the American Dream. Actually, they are building it!
You can still enjoy the meticulously maintained parquet flooring and the charm of the Mid Century colored tile in the bathrooms. :: insert swoon here::
The living area has a wall of windows that looks out into the beautiful backyard, where that live oak has matured into a stunning focal point.
The area that we labeled as the office was initially designed to be a playroom. Over the years, as the number of children grew, it was used as a 4th bedroom. The only son was the one that got the private bedroom with the private bath and private entrance! Lucky guy!
Mr. Homeowner was passionate about woodworking and built a 14 x28 shop in the backyard with electricity and a bonus 220v outlet.
A great southern home has to have a front porch, and this one has one that is perfect for a couple of rocking chairs to relax in with a glass of sweet tea in the afternoons or a cup of coffee in the morning. A friendly wave to the joggers and walkers as they pass will make for the perfect front porch sitting.
The roof was replaced less than three years ago, and the windows were replaced less than two years ago. The house also has a newer water heater, and the HVAC is under a maintenance contract that can be transferred to the new owner.
This house raised six children in total and has only had one owner during its lifetime. It’s now time for this house to be part of new memories with a new set of occupants.
