The entrance to this beautiful structure reminds me of a grander time, bringing one back to an era of Lafayette when cocktail parties were a formal occasion and the social atmosphere was intense. Set far back from the road, this traditional, red brick home with its white columns and beautiful port-cochere catches each driver's eye as they turn onto Girard Park Drive. Sitting on a nice lot at 1.15 acres and positioned strategically close to the Oil Center, Lafayette General , Downtown and UL with Moncus Park so close and Girard Park down the street...this house has so much to offer the buyer! Spacious rooms and large windows give this interesting floor plan character. An extensive and open back yard allow for a pool and cabana to be added . Its neighbors are situated far to eachside and it boasts an entire extra lot on the south end of the property. Attached to the main structure is quite the cutest and most interesting feature, a ground level arrangement of rooms, closets and a precious little shower bathroom which could be a mother in law , apartment or office. Its options are endless and the opportunity to expand and grow are available. Using the extra lot to build an investment would be an exciting project for any buyer. Walking and biking is so common in this neighborhood as well as Oil Center functions such as bands gathering across the street at Heymann Park. Dog walkers , runners , food trucks and fun, artistic events are just a few of the sites which are common place for this location. Embrace the whole main Lafayette Corridor right here! Visit and experience this awesome area with its cool vibe!
