Riding down Metairie Road, this gem of a home might escape your view.
Sitting at an interesting angle on one of the region's most coveted streets, 3 Tokalon Place doesn't face the bustle of Metairie Road. Neatly tucked behind a pristine white brick wall, the sizable manse is a private paradise.
It beckons with a lifestyle that is ... well, stylish.
With six bedrooms, more than six baths and more than 6,500 square feet of space for $3.395 million, this custom home overflows with amenities.
Built in 2015, it greets visitors with a stately auto court and access to the three-car garage and plentiful parking.
The sturdy double front doors open to a foyer anchored by a staircase to the second floor.
An elegant formal dining room is just steps inside, making entertaining effortless. On the opposite side of the foyer is a private office with ample storage and shelving.
Passing by the easily accessible elevator, the great room is grounded by a large fireplace. Windows and French doors allow plenty of natural light into the expansive space, where cabinetry and shelves afford display and utilitarian space.
Through a large opening lies the kitchen, packed with stainless appliances, hard-surface counters, an island with seating and a window-lined space for either additional seating or a breakfast room. Ceiling details draw the eye upward, adding volume to the culinary arena.
The primary suite enjoys ground-floor access, with a bayed area of large windows overlooking the rear yard. A spa-inspired bath leads to a large dressing area/closet.
Heading up the stairs, a wet bar with a wine refrigerator is close at hand in the hall.
Four additional bedrooms are located on the floor, with an additional bedroom with a large sitting room on the top floor.
The rear entertaining space is a screened-in zone, including a wine storage facility, with a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen with a seating area, dining space and a fireplace. To take advantage of the sun, try the elegant saltwater swimming pool and jetted tub.
A new roof keeps everything dry, and a whole-house generator keeps the lights and cool going in the event of a power outage.
