Mansion on the Market

California-Style Mansion

If you are in the market for a 1950's Hollywood style mansion nestled in one of most prestigious sections of Shreveport, La, then this is the home for you.  For only $1.75 million, this wonderfully preserved 6,129 sq. ft., mid-century modern home and 2.27 acres is a time capsule.
Driving through the gate to this home on top of a hill, guests are greeted by the warmth of the home's natural stacked stone and expanse of glass.An intricately carved, massive front door opens to a unique light fixture and beautiful wood ceiling in the foyer. Inside, interesting and one-of-a-kind light fixtures throughout the home draw the eye upward.
The natural building materials continue inside the house with beautiful grained paneling and the natural stacked stone on the fireplace in the living room.The openness of the space highlighted by the vaulted ceiling and the floor to ceiling glass walls in every room, bring the lovely outside surroundings into the house.
The kitchen abounds in natural light and efficiency.   It would be a gourmet's dream to cook in this luxurious space. 
 This is not your run-of-the mill wet bar.  Recently upgraded with thick granite counter tops, it is situated off the entrance and adjoining the kitchen, making it a natural gathering place.

One of my favorite spaces is the spacious utility room with moveable folding table and large sink.

There are four bedrooms and four full baths with also a powder room.  Each is spa worthy in it's own right with beautiful granite and marble, wavy stones and mosaics mixed with sleek design choices. Nothing was left un-turned in these bathrooms.
 Guest Bedroom 1 and adjoining bath
Bedrooms 2 and 3 with Jack-in-Jill bath

And then, the Master Bed and Bath
 This is "His" side.  There is a large walk-through shower between the His and Her baths.
And "Her" side
Now who couldn't enjoy dressing every morning in this bath.
There are also large walk-in closets in both baths.

There are several sitting areas that take advantage of the lovely landscaped 2.7 acres.
 Sun/garden room with vaulted ceiling, terrazzo flooring, stone accent wall and newly installed floor to ceiling windows that bring the outside in.
 Comfortable den with built-ins, fireplace, ceiling fan, recessed lighting and access to lower outside terrace.
And then there is this covered, open terrace off the living room.
This is the lower terrace outside the den with flagstone flooring overlooking the amazing grounds.
 The terrace area off the kitchen / dining area is filled with lush greenery and a flagstone path.

Thanks for taking this tour of a Mansion on the Market where I live.

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. Beautiful home! I'm sure it will sell quickly. Have a wonderful week, Elizabeth.

  2. All those windows to keep clean! What a beautiful home and so much of nature surrounding it. Does everything stay green through the winter there?

  3. Oh, my how gorgeous! I love all the windows but as Nonnie said, they have to be kept cleaned. Ugh! A real treasure!


I do love reading your comments, so please share your thoughts with me.
