Details for 6882 Ouida Irondale Road, St Francisville LA 70787

Ouida Mansion & Gardens: Dates to 1840. This beauty is just outside of St Francisville, LA. Ouida was named for the pseudonym of the English novelist Marie Louise de la Ramée, & now sits on 25 plus acres of restored landscape/woodlands. The romance & magic of this place must be seen in person! We are proud to offer this once-abandoned jewel of West Feliciana Parish. Ouida’s true Acadian architecture was restored & lovingly cared for over the last 20 years by its previous owners. The property retains original paint, old growth cypress and pine, & an abundance of unique details. The parlor conserves 90% of its original paint. This beautiful center hall home offers 3 bedrooms, 4 fireplaces, a large updated kitchen, breakfast room looking out on the grounds, formal parlor & dining room, plenty of upstairs living space for guests, a home office, play room, etc., large screened in porch for relaxing & entertaining. It has its own wine cellar. You can even make your own pecan pie from the trees on the grounds! This is a perfect retreat & its grounds will inspire your creative soul. Step into one of the gardens & let the muse guide you. Turkey, deer & a large variety of other wildlife reside on this estate. Two additional structures: a double garage with attached greenhouse & a two bay outbuilding with a great deck with built-in seating & a nearby fountain. The landscape holds many native plants and birds. Great place to write that book, record that song, or just relax. St. Francisville is a cool funky town with a great main-street downtown area, art galleries, clothing stores, restaurants, coffee shop, antique shops, etc. Perfect for anyone looking for serene living, while enjoying nature’s beauty. Within a 30 minute drive to Baton Rouge or 2 hour drive to New Orleans Airport (MSY). Property shown by appointment only. Measurements not warranted. Property is in Succession. Furnishings can remain. Photos are from an earlier photo shoot.
