An impeccable home on a beautiful 150' wide lot on Lake Bruin.  Lake Bruin is located in Tensas Parish and is a deep water oxbow lake right by the Mississippi River levee.  The property also includes 4.5 pristine acres across Botany Bay Road from the home and extending to LA State Hwy 604.  Would make a great place for horses,  The home is approximately 2000 sq. ft. which includes a completely enclosed and central heated and cooled garage and office.  From the garage is an open floor plan kitchen, dining and living room,  There is a gorgeous view of Lake Bruin and a fine fireplace in the middle.  The wall are all pecky cypress with cypress crown molding.  The interior doors are 2" thick cypress.  The french doors to the lake are composite and will never need replacing.  They have wood grain and are stained to match the cypress walls and molding.  The floors are sealed and polished Mexican tile.  The backsplashes in the kitchen and both baths are a beautiful Travertine.  The kitchen cabinets are all cypress and were installed in 2012  The washer, dryer, refrigerator and all appliances were replaced in 2012 as well.  In addition to the 2 car garage there is a neat carport for 2 more vehicles.  On the north side of the home is a 400 sq. ft. shop on a slab with venting and easily air conditioned.  The cypress tree lined lake front has a solid pier that extends well into deep water.  Just across the Mississippi River levee are the best hunting clubs anywhere.  Great deer, duck, turkey, doves and small game plus great fishing on borrow pits and big lakes fed by the river.
