West Feliciana Tour of Homes

The tenth annual Friends of the West Feliciana Library Tour of Homes will be held Sunday, December 3, 2006 between 12 noon and 5 p.m. during Christmas in the Country. Four homes will be on tour: one in Beauchamp Estates off Audubon Lane, one in Plantation Oaks off Highway 61 near River Bend Nuclear Plant, and two in The Bluffs Resort and County Club.

Tickets for the tour are $15 per person and may be purchased in advance and on the day of the tour at the West Feliciana Parish Library, 11865 Ferdinand Street, in St. Francisville. All proceeds from the tour are used for library projects. For more information, call the library at 225/635-3364.

Lisa and Tony Horn’s traditional southern home in Beauchamp Estates features interior brick walls and massive wooden beams in the kitchen. The living area of the house has 12 foot ceilings and looks out over the pool and lake. The house was built by the owners in 2003.

Nine Oaks, the home of Camille and Scott Thibodeaux in Plantation Oaks, sits on 2.5 acres nestled among nine old live oak trees, overlooking a small pond on the rear of the property. The French country style, six bedroom home has over 4,000 square feet plus a studio over the garage and features an eclectic mix of old and new construction details. The home was completed in 2006.

Virginia and Peyton Crawford’s 2-story European design home in The Bluffs overlooks the 9th hole of the golf course and has a spectacular view of the unique split fairway. The home is fronted with columns and is accented by a bowed ironwork baluster and copper awning.

Jackie and Mike Creed’s home on the 15th hole of The Bluffs golf course overlooks a creek that meanders along the edge of the beautifully landscaped yard. The exterior of the traditional home is old St. Louis brick and natural stucco. The traditional style is carried into the interior of the house with a brick arch in the foyer and wood and brick floors.
