This classic brick and stone newer home has a choice location with close proximity to White Deer Run Golf Club, Lake Charles, and the park.

Finished to perfection, the hallmark of the home is the stunning architectural detailing. Enter the home through the custom Honduran mahogany front doors with wrought iron grills. The dramatic two story foyer showcases the airy feeling that is experienced throughout the home with soaring ceilings, skylights, tall windows, arches, and pillars. The foyer opens to the spacious formal living and dining rooms, which are accented by fine millwork and recessed lighting. Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring flows seamlessly throughout the first floor. The unbelievable chef’s kitchen is well planned with top-of-the-line appliances and thoughtful detailing. Features include a two-story custom stone hood, washed cherry cabinetry, granite island and breakfast bar, walk-in pantry fitted with washed cherry cabinetry, SubZero fridge and freezer, Thermador double ovens, Bosch dishwasher, five burner Thermador stove, and double deep Kohler sinks. The kitchen overlooks the backyard and opens to a large breakfast area and family room. The family room has a gas fireplace with a limestone surround, extensive built-in cabinetry, and large windows.

Double French doors connect a bonus study to the private cherry library with distinctive built-in cabinetry. Additional first floor amenities include a butler’s pantry with wine fridge, two powder bathrooms, a large mudroom, and an attached three car garage. The second floor master suite wing includes the master bedroom with a handsome fireplace, sitting room, luxury bathroom, and a 16×10 walk-in closet. The spacious master bathroom has a whirlpool, separate large shower with full body spray, and double vanities with exceptional storage.
