Description

Welcome to The Potts House, an exquisite piece of Baton Rouge history! Built in 1848 by the renowned builder and master brick mason Nelson Potts, this historical home is a true testament to the timeless craftsmanship of the past. Potts was known as one of the master builders in Baton Rouge from 1846-1867. The home's historical significance is further underscored by its inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places, confirming its architectural and cultural importance. With its stately faade, classic front porch, oversized balcony, and period-appropriate details, the Potts House offers a glimpse into the past, while the beautiful updates provide a comfortable lifestyle for modern living. As you step inside, the grandeur of the home's historic architecture will transport you to a bygone era. You will be captivated by the original hardwood floors, custom millwork, exposed brick, original wood beams, and wooden ceilings. With four generously sized bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a dependency unit, there is plenty of room for family, guests, and/or offices. Some of the many renovations include new quartzite countertops, modern appliances, freshly painted interior, freshly painted exterior including the columns and porch, professional landscaping, new lighting, new tile floors, new fixtures, new modern wallpaper, and more. This historic home has been lovingly restored and updated to truly incorporate the best of both worlds. You will absolutely marvel over the gorgeous view of the State Capitol! This property also provides the opportunity to take advantage of the historical tax credits. Dont miss your chance to own a piece of Baton Rouge history! The property is zoned for residential or commercial use. The lot adjacent to the home is also for sale. See document section for plat map.
