From the Zillow listing:


Welcome to 15650 Laurel Street in the charming Village of Rosedale. Originally built in 1859 as the Holt House, you’ll find this one-of-a-kind, antique cottage has been renovated and is waiting for you to call it home. Framed by a gorgeous ~250 year old live oak tree, the setting is absolutely stunning and the front porch swing is the perfect place to enjoy peace and quiet in the afternoons. You can watch your children or you can take advantage of the amazing amenities across the street, including two playgrounds, a tennis court, a basketball court, a pickle ball court, baseball field and a walking trail. About a block away is the library and a local grocery, with a larger grocery about 4 miles away in Maringouin/Livonia. Upon entering this 3 bedroom 2 bath home, you’ll find beautiful wood floors, new windows, a renovated kitchen with new countertops, backsplash and GE appliances, including the refrigerator which will remain. Downstairs is the formal living and dining room, a spacious den with built ins, as well as a nice size bedroom and bathroom that offers double vanities and a jacuzzi tub. The owner would be happy to share a set of plans to add on another bedroom off of the den. Upstairs you’ll find 2 bedrooms and a bath. The first bedroom has a vanity built into the closet space and the second bedroom has attic access as well as a cozy reading nook. Behind the main house is a guest house or mother in law suite. The space offers a kitchen and full bath. With a little updating it could be the perfect place for a parent or college student. A second building behind the main house is the wash house. This is where the washer and dryer are located and they will remain for the new buyer. This home offers a 2 car carport with a loft which has previously been used as office space. Beyond the open carport is room for a boat and more. There is a fig tree and orange tree in the backyard and a cozy fire pit for those chilly nights. Just 20 from the Mississippi River Bridge.
