Property Description

Wow! Fabulous Mid-Century modern home in sought after Bendel Gardens. Designed by Lafayette architect David L Perkins who in 1954 began the architectural department at the then SLI as a feeder program to Tulane. ln 1957 he resigned from teaching and opened his own private practice. He designed 8 houses in Bendel Gardens including this, his personal home. Built on one and a half lots on the comer of Laurence and Marjorie the yard is heavily landscaped and affords lovely views through all the wonderful glass windows.The main house has 3250 square feet of living area. In addition to the main home there is an additional 200 square foot guestroom with its own full bathroom and a hotel type air/heat system, a shed, and a workshop! Inside (all original design) are large, flowing rooms, varied ceiling treatments and ceiling heights, columns, skylights, large windows, jalousie windows, plantation shutters, lots of Red Gum paneled walls, 3 HVAC units, a greenhouse room, sewing room, and a piano room. There are two living areas, one with a gas start fireplace, beams, wood ceilings. There is a large kitchen with tons of storage and counter space, a greenhouse type ceiling, a down draft stove top, and double ovens. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, a large walk-in closet, and a sewing/study room at the back. There is a fallout shelter on the property that has not been opened in 40 years. The home does need a new roof, some of the Pella windows have lost their seals, and there is some rotten wood. The sellers welcome inspections but will do no repairs.
