Historic House Listings

Deal of the Day! Circa 1948 in Louisiana. $159,000

June 1, 2023

Love the details in this deal of the day! This home was built in 1948. (looks older to me) It is located on .31 acres in Jeanerette, Louisiana. The home features beautiful hardwood floors, wainscoting, wide baseboards, crown moulding, tall ceilings and built-in bookshelves. The listing says they lowered the price due to foundation repairs need to be made. Wondering if that massive tree out front has something to do with that issue! Five bedrooms, four bathrooms and 3,505 square feet. $159,000

From the Zillow listing:


Steps from historic downtown Jeanerette sits this hidden gem that’s full of possibilities!! The front yard is shaded under the umbrella of the over 100 year old oak tree & holds pops of pink azaleas. Standing proud with a stately facade, this home invites you into its grand foyer. Oak floors shine under your feet while your eyes catch the thick baseboards & crown molding. To your right is the formal living room full of character & charm. There is a hidden half bath making great use of the space under the staircase. Straight ahead is the den which sits in between the owner’s suite to its right & kitchen to its left. This room would make a great reading room or open up the wall to expand your bedroom. The bedroom has a walk-in closet and full bathroom. In the large kitchen there’s a laundry area, breakfast nook and doors to the back of the home & porte cochère. Ideal for entertaining, the dining room flows off the kitchen & connects to the foyer. Upstairs you will find 4 very big bedrooms; two on the left & two on the right. Each set of two is connected by a Jack & Jill bathroom. The upstairs hall brings you straight to a space that could be utilized as an office, study area for the kids or library with reading nook. Behind the home there is plenty of open parking or space for the kids to ride their bikes & create art with chalk. The 2 car garage also holds storage & workshop space along with a half bath. By the open parking is a whole home generator that won’t leave you in the dark! On the left side of the home you will find the porte cochère which will come in handy on rainy days. There are so many ways to utilize the spaces in this home. Schedule your showing to envision how this house can become “home” with your design & style.
