A Segreto Home for Sale!

Mar 23, 2020

Hi Friends! I am thinking about all of you and wondering how the uncertainty is changing your lives. Staying positive, thinking about spring and then hot weather, which is right around the corner. This is a beautiful home and I thought you might like a little tour!!

front of house exterior

This house, completed seven years ago, was one of the first New Orleans style new construction homes I had worked on. Designed in the style of A. Hays Town, it features antique Spanish Creole fencing and reclaimed brick.

granite graveled parking court

I love the feel pulling up to the house with the granite graveled parking court. It sits on a 23,000 sqft lot with lots of green space and a beautiful courtyard to the right welcoming you as you walk up to the front door. Notice the sculptor insets on the ivy adorned fencing.

beveled glass doors into foyer

From the time you enter with these steel/beveled glass doors into the foyer, you are met with beautiful groin ceiling details and lots of special touches.

reclaimed brick accent wall in dining room

The dining room looks exquisite with its reclaimed brick accent wall mimicking the brown tones of the table and china cabinet. Although it’s beautiful as is, if you fancy a lighter less contrasting feel to your interiors, lime washing the brick is an easy, cost effective fix!

You can go for a fuller coverage like we achieved over this dark red brick or…

leave some of the brick exposed as with this amazing exterior makeover!!

living room with second fireplace

Here you can see the living room holds a second fireplace over another reclaimed brick accent wall in a big and bright space for gatherings.

custom made steel doors in living room

Along the side the room shows breathtaking custom made steel doors to let in all of the sunlight and show a picturesque view of the grounds. See the outside fountain? It is a made from an antique sugar kettle!

kitchen with louvered pantry door

I love the kitchen: functional and with so many elements brought together to have the feeling of a furnished room, one of the design firm Nest & Cot’s signatures. Even the louvered door to the pantry was textured and aged to feel reclaimed!

glazed cabinetry and reclaimed concrete tile over range hood

Next, you can see how our glazed cabinetry compliments the reclaimed concrete tile from Chateau Domingue, lending a furniture feel to the spray boxes.

antique door turned cabinet with display plates

I love this built in, centuries old, framed antique door turned cabinet with the built in reclaimed shelves!! Such a wonderful and focal element to store your collection of antique plates or open shelving for easy access to your dinner ware.

reclaimed brick groin vaulted ceiling

After that you find this reclaimed brick groin vaulted ceiling which extends through the gallery, matching the floor and connecting the main rooms downstairs in a very New Orleans way.

library with pecky cypress molding

The library is adorned with Pecky Cypress molding, beams and bookcases. It makes for a cozy feeling with the tall drapery and fireplace amidst the wood paneling and coffee table. It looks like the perfect place to cuddle up with a furry friend and read a book! This finish color is still current today, however, it can easily be glazed to read lighter or even like weathered wood that’s been aged to take on a greige appearance.

In fact, there are so many transformations we can implement to create just the design feel for your own style! Plastering the ceilings white would also add a sleeker feel to this currently traditional space.

concrete sink with iron base in bathroom

This bathroom with a custom concrete sink and customized iron base mixes both contemporary and antique! We finished the base and glazed the woodwork to blend with the grasscloth wallcovering! I love the towels hung on the basin. Such a beautiful touch. Grasscloth, for instance, gives such a defining texture to a stenciled design.

Here is a close up of a stencil design over wallcovering we did for a different client. The texture really adds to the effect! Imagine this version in the above space! A totally different look.

master bedroom with private courtyard

Check out this spacious master bedroom which leads out into a private courtyard lending a whimsical aspect to the home.

spacious master bathroom

This oh-so-spa-like master bathroom was featured in Segreto Vignettes. All painted in the same tone, the detailing on the cabinets creates interest while still staying light in tone.

cozy bedroom on second floor

Meanwhile, the second floor houses three en-suite bedrooms, including this one with matching ruffles on the bed and chair. It just feels so cozy!!

summer kitchen patio and backyard

In conclusion, going out to the backyard, the summer kitchen patio holds a third fireplace, a grill and a TV, making it ideal for entertaining guests.

marbleized wooden tabletop

If you call for a listing, look for our other touches, like this wooden top we marbleized!! Nancy Younger-Kruka with Greenwood King has this listing. For more information you can go to the listing here.

flowers and coffee mug

I hope everyone is doing ok, and catching up on that home to-do-list, while practicing social distancing! Above all, try to enjoy some special moments. Love this quote from Oprah. Till next week! XO Leslie

“Living in the moment means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future. It means living your life consciously, aware that each moment you breathe is a gift.” — Oprah Winfrey
