Stunning 1850 Historic District Greek Revival in like new condition in Natchitoches, that romantic 1714 Creole riverfront town you loved in Steel Magnolias. It was moved and redone w/luxurious upgrades, 13' ceilings, original cypress floors, magnificent 50' front and rear galleries and a commercial kitchen. Today it hosts elegant weddings and parties and discriminating overnight guests in its massive 55' reception hall, a parlor, two dining rooms, five guestrooms, eight baths and secluded gazebo garden with fountains. The 1st floor parlor suite could be gracious owners'quarters. Offered beautifully furnished and turnkey with few exceptions.
This is a great place to live! Four hours North of New Orleans, Natchitoches was a refuge for many professionals fleeing Katrina and Gustav. It is a classy place! The Historic District offers the riverfront, great food and shopping, art, museums, university, year round festivals and tours and the river. The river road is a history of Louisiana Creole architecture set in magnificent ancient oaks, with original plantations separated by vast fields of cotton, corn and soy beans along the Cane River. It is a gumbo of Indian, French, Spanish, African, Creole and American cultures - a rich and satisfying feast for the eyes and the soul.
Natchitoches is a good place to do business....property values have not dropped in the last year, storefronts are full and there is a new convention center. Year round festivals and the nearby National Heritage Area continue to draw visitors. Homes along the river are in excess of $500,000. A stroll through the Historic District features antique homes on shady lots being beautifully restored. Many streets have French names and residents have great taste. Bed and Breakfasts host many returning guests for weddings, events and getaways.
