It makes you think of a gorgeous hacienda in the tropics or of a Mediterranean villa, but it is so much more! Built around a spectacular courtyard overlooking a breathtaking golf course with views from every room deep in the woods, it is only thirty miles north of Baton Rouge and minutes from St. Francisville. Noted architect, the late Ike Capdevielle, designed the home after the owners had been romanced by a similar home while visiting Costa Rica on a vacation a decade ago. While the house shows classic designs, energy efficiency and material conservation were most important and is evident with its vaulted ceilings and arched paired doors that catch prevailing breezes. With a totally private premier location, the home has a central living core, with a kitchen wing to one side immediately accessible to the out-of-sight garage, a huge luxurious master bedroom suite, a guest bedroom wing, and an upstairs playroom with perfect smaller guest rooms for younger visitors. It’s stucco and beams, and columns, a gutsy clay tile roof, a protected patio and a covered gallery above an absolutely stunning-courtyard which you skirt by at the entrance and which opens off the living area . . . bringing the outside in and the inside out, as they say . . . in the best possible way. And all of this, with all the amenities of The Bluffs, the premier Arnold Palmer Signature golf course master planned community.
