Situated on the lazy Mississippi River & nestled among the steadfast oak trees in Plaquemine’s Historic District, you will find this breathtaking 114 year old antebellum home still standing in it’s original Southern splendor. The minute you step onto this property, you'll immediately be transported back in time to Eden St’s grand legacy & the best of this time period’s historic charm. Upon entering the home from the large antebellum double stacked wrap around porch, you'll be in awe of the craftsmanship & detail paid to the grand staircase that anchors the first floor of the home. On the main level, you'll find a gentleman’s parlor, a ladies’ parlor, formal dining room, study & a large butlers’ pantry which was the home’s original kitchen. On the 2nd floor, you'll find a library space at the top of the landing, 6 bedrooms & 3 more fireplaces. The views from all the 2nd floor bedrooms are breathtaking as they overlook the 2nd story balconies, historic oak trees & magnolia trees that engulf the property. On the lower level, you will find a drawing room (also known as the garden room), the service kitchen & a service elevator that connects directly to the 2nd floor bedroom suites. The home is fully wired with a bell service in every room that was originally used to provide the family with the ability to ring down to the service areas at any time for assistance, as needed. If you’re not interested in restoring this for a personal home, this estate would be ideal for an event facility as it has authentic South Louisiana charm highly sought out by event planners & the physical space to fit hundreds of people at once. The layout is ideal because the first floor of the home has ample space for indoor events & flows perfectly into the gardens & terrace spaces ideal for outdoor events. The upstairs can be totally closed off for privacy of the party hosts (i.e. bridal suites or even hotel suites for bridal party guests) while still having access as needed via the elevator.
