The owners custom built this home based on a historic Louisiana plantation.
While it's not to everyone's taste, it was a nice place - pier & beam, 3 stories with an elevator, slate roof, 11 foot ceilings, 6 fireplaces, high-end finishes made of mahogany, marble, onyx, etc.
Are you sitting down?
They're tearing it down!
A neighbor bought it and wants the land. They may keep the tennis courts, pool, spa, cabana, 4 car garage or monitored security gates.
But goodbye exercise room, game room, library, media room, ...
What a sad, sad waste.
