More about 57835 MERIAM, Plaquemine, LA 70764
This fabulous, cypress-construction, historic home in Plaquemine is a must-see!! It has been lovingly updated with all the character of an older home retained. The welcoming front porch is deep enough to enjoy spring evenings. Enter the beautiful front doors into a large foyer which leads to a central hall. Off the central hall you'll find the living areas on one side and the bedrooms & baths on the other. The living and dining rooms have pocket doors to allow for flexible use. The light fixtures in these rooms and the foyer are circa 1920 and have lovely medallions on the ceilings. Many of the rooms have beautiful stained glass windows. The dining room has a wonderful bay window area and a fireplace (non-functioning) in one corner. The original oak floors throughout the house (living, dining, foyer, hall, and bedrooms) are in wonderful condition. The kitchen has been completely updated with granite counters, stainless appliances (including a six-burner gas range), and indoor laundry facility - all while retaining the charm of an older home. The kitchen and baths have ceramic tile floors. The bedrooms are all spacious. The two children's rooms are adjoining, but have separate entrances from the hall. They also have cedar-lined closets. The fourth bedroom is used as a sitting/media room. One of the baths has a period clawfoot tub while the other has a walk-in shower with a beautiful furniture-style vanity. Other features include plaster walls, lovely molding details, solid interior doors with glass knobs, and interior transoms. The house has been re-wired and has central heat and air (only one year old). The exterior transoms are all functional as is the attic fan. In the rear yard, you'll find an electronic gated entrance leading to ample parking. There are two detached storage buildings. The new 8-foot fence provides plenty of privacy and the yard is large enough for gardening and playing.
