Piece of Southern paradise: New Iberia ranch has 35-foot ceilings, cedar cabin on 10 acres

This piece of southern paradise sits on 9.96 acres of lush, green, fenced-in pastures in New Iberia with a mansion that has 3,182 square feet, three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.

Elaborate, oversized iron gates greet guests at the private, brick-lined driveway that leads to the gorgeous estate. A stately balcony with bold white columns stands above the house, overlooking the sprawling ranch.

The foyer welcomes guests into the home through the beautiful custom oak door and into the living room with soaring 35-foot ceilings. The massive stone fireplace draws attention to the openness of the living room, formal dining area, private office, and a massive kitchen sitting adjacent to the open-concept floor plan.

Some of the amenities found in the extraordinary chef’s dream kitchen are a gourmet Wolf Range, custom stainless steel hood, trash compactor, wine cooler, secretary nook, and an abundance of storage and workspace. The granite island makes a statement on its own with additional seating for six.

The breakfast table sits along the wall of the back windows, which look out onto the amazing backyard, which features an open patio and pool area and a sandbar deck. The space is perfect for entertaining or just unwinding after a long day.

Behind the pool sits a 1,200-square-foot cedar cabin that is a home in itself with an open floor plan, one bedroom, a loft and one and a half bathrooms.

The main house’s master en-suite features a large room with more soaring ceilings, crown molding, and its own private access the patio and pool area. The master bathroom has separate dual vanities and sinks, a custom deep tub, and a large walk-in shower. The spacious walk-in closet features tons of storage, with two built-in dressers and shoe racks.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a jack-and-jill bathroom. Three sets of French doors flowing from the bedrooms and the bath lead out to the private balcony.

Additional exterior features are an open-air 6,500-foot metal hangar, semi-enclosed metal barn or shop, a 2,000-square-foot round pen, and 1,875-square-foot metal loafing shed.

Back patio nights are filled with the sounds of nature and, twinkling of lightning bugs put on a show at the tree line.

On the market for $795,000, the mansion is located at 2219 Tims Blvd. in New Iberia.
