This property has an open house Sunday, March 19, from 1-3 p.m. 
Do you know A. Hays Town’s and love a Louisiana-style home? For more than 65 years, A. Hays Town built houses and buildings which were heavily influenced by the Spanish, French, and Creole history of Louisiana. More than 1,000 homes in Louisiana and the southern United States exist with his distinctive style and most have garnered design awards. Town dies in 2005 at the ripe age of 101!

How to describe his style?  Classic Louisiana, full-length shutters as doors, dovecotes (little dove or pigeon towers, which were once considered a measure of wealth), 13-foot ceilings (better circulate air flow), plantation-style separate shutters, and brick floors with a special beeswax finish.

It’s warm and inviting, yes. A little Dilbeck-esque. But to have the best of all possible worlds, take Town’s Louisiana style and marry it to new construction with the latest bell and whistles and you have, well, 3021 Southwestern.

This is truly one of the most beautiful homes I have seen in a long time, it is just YUMMY!
