The Burdin House C. 1900 Historical Registered Queen Anne Antebellum Revival RESTORED! A Cypress Landmark from before the 1900's, a piece of Louisiana History right here in St. Martinville, one of the oldest cities in Louisiana. A city filled with memories going back generations. And this is how I begin to describe the Burdin House... A Masterpiece at the hands of two people who had a vision. Together created an exquisite blend of their own style. I would say; it has a "Coastal Cottage" feel while remaining true to the character and Integrity from the original architectural foundation and elements. Personally, I couldn't help but feel like a true Southerner once standing on the front Gallery...Sipping Iced tea, having a glass of sherry...Sunday dinners, celebrations and life stories all running through my mind. This legend was built on a ridge standing high and proud on a 2.34 lusciously landscaped parcel that over looks the Bayou Teche. Knowing that the film: Christmas on the Bayou was filmed here, I was anxious to step inside the "Center Hall" where the plans of the home originated. I could not have hoped for anything more amazing!!! A real home, with real antique oak wood floors, transoms, 12" baseboards, 13' ceilingts, a pair of full length windows, two-over-two windows, fluted and reeded moldings, 5 different mantels, Balustrade Staircase, a leaded china cabinet and here goes..."Shiplap" hidden behind many layers of paint, sheet rock and cheesecloth. The owners were so surprised when this unexpected treasure was found. The home offers a library with special touches from top to bottom, a beautiful living room, Guest suite, A Luxurious Master Suite with ample space for a sitting area. The Master Bath is new and elegant! The original claw Bath (1910) has been restored and fits nicely next to the separate marble shower and vanity areas. Carrera marble floors run throughout the wet area while carpet was installed in the walk-in- closet. To the rear of the home is the Formal Dining Room with a leaded china cabinet. Walking through the Vestibule, I found an adorable guest bathroom with Murano glass twin doors that had been re-purposed. I turned around towards the most beautiful and bright kitchen I have ever encountered. White painted Cabinets from top to bottom, a 9' x 43" Island, Walnut Counters, Italian Porcelain back splash, Bar/Coffee station, Stainless appliances, Ice maker, Italian gas burning range and sitting below are 3 electrified ovens. Geau wood porcelain tile planks (white, grays & browns) were placed in the Kitchen, Keeping and Laundry/Craft room If that is not enough, you will find up the Balustrade stairs a Guest Suite with stunning views of Live Oaks, Lemon, Tangerine and Fig trees, A Storage/Barn house ( 14 x 21) in addition to the ornamental metal "fish scale" roof . No matter what dormer you look through it will be a treat. From the lips of the front steps to the stacks of the 5 chimneys; this home is a must see!! The owners began their restoration in August of 2016. Their combined style and desire to transform this Historic gem into a fully functional home for today's lifestyle has been accomplished.
