Love all of the porches! Over one acre in Louisiana. Circa 1914. $249,000

October 20, 2020

Love all of the porches! This home was built in 1914. It is located on 1.2 acres in Welsh, Louisiana. The floors and trim are made of long leaf pine and cypress. They kind of modernized it a bit too much for my taste, but it’s a nice house. The home has a new roof and foundation. It was also raised two feet. I’m wondering if it had a flooding issue in the past. This home has been featured in books and documented in the Welsh Museum. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,040 square feet. $320,000 New price: $249,000
