Architecturally significant Lake Vista home on desirable Swan Street overlooking the levee and Lake Pontchartrain. Spacious with modern sensibilities and artistic flair, the home sits on a rare 150 x 150 double lot. 12-foot teak panel walls swing to combine the walled living room with the family room into one large room with glass walls. Three generations of New Orleanians have known it as the house with moving walls. Designed by acclaimed architect and Tulane professor Charles Colbert in 1960, the home is a marvelous example of Modernistic design with museum style interiors. The home design is symmetrical and creative - right and left sides mirror each other with room placement. Soaring ceilings with skylights and multiple windows bring the sunshine in! A hyper-modern kitchen with all the bells, whistles and handsome looks includes a wrap-around center-island breakfast bar, walls of custom cabinets, all stainless professional appliances, drop-pendant lighting and a separate nook for coffee prep or bar items. Bring your largest dining table for the dining room, with a home like this one, you'll surely be entertaining! An office and a second studio/office offer the ability to work and play without leaving home! The owner's suite features a large bedroom adjacent to ample double closets, luxurious bath with glass spa shower and separate jacuzzi tub. Call your guests and spread out to the 3 upstairs bedrooms. You will love the brick flooring in the living areas and hardwood floors with cherry accents in the bedrooms and upstairs hall. Enter into this special property through an imposing brick privacy fence leading to an oasis of professionally landscaped hidden gardens and a resort-style pool area with shady gathering spots. Well cared for mature gardens surround the home. There is even a separate kitchenette adjacent to the pool area for party prep and evening snacks. Two rooms also open to the pool area for your beloved pets or storage. Two ample driveways make parking a breeze. You simply can't fail with this one! All your top home goals -- and even a few you didn't know you had -- wrapped up in one gorgeous package.
