3-story closet featured in sprawling Covington home

COVINGTON, LA (WVUE) -

An established neighborhood in Covington keeps a huge secret. A mammoth home is tucked away in the back of the Riverwood Subdivision, partially hidden from view. But, oh, what a view it is.

"It's in it's own enclave. Three-point-eight acres of land, lots of beautiful oak trees on the land. It's an Acadian style home very typical of homes we find in South Louisiana," said Suzy McDaniel with Dorian Bennett Sotheby's.

"You walk in and it opens up. You have 12-foot ceilings throughout the house on the first floor, and it's very open and warm."

A parlor at the entrance is just one of many places to enjoy conversation. A formal dining room sets the tone of elegance. The kitchen is one any gourmet could enjoy.

"The kitchen features glazed cabinets and granite counter tops and a variety of appliances," McDaniel said.

There are three functional kitchens in the house and a service kitchen. The living room is large and filled with art. An elaborate antique Italian gilded bar welcomes guests.

"The only things on the first floor besides living areas is the 3,000-square-foot master suite," McDaniel said.

The master suite is soft and delicate with hideaways within. His and hers separate baths flank the bedroom. His and hers reading rooms are also available. They are sumptuous, quiet places to get away.

The closet for "her" is three stories. The second floor is for evening gowns, the third for furs and other items.

An elevator can take you to the second floor where fun and games prevail. A game room is complete with its own kitchen. Walk through a darkened door, and you'll get to watch your favorite feature.

"It's a very authentic theater. It has curtains that open and close in front of the screen just like the old days," McDaniel said.

There are eight full bathroom four half-baths, and seven bedrooms sprinkled among the floors.

McDaniel says the third floor is a stand-alone apartment type unit with 2,000 square feet of space. It's great for in-laws, with a kitchen and sitting areas and a view of the amazing yard.

A large gazebo overlooks the swimming pool and a fruit orchard.
