What: A three-bedroom home in Lafitte’s Landing in Lafayette Parish with 2.5 baths Address: 305 Barataria Bay Pt. Size: 1,742 square feet Price: $235,000
Price per square foot: $134.90 Setting: This house is located in Lafitte’s Landing on the south side of Lafayette near Pinhook and Verot School roads. The location offers easy access to Camellia heading toward River Ranch as well as the Oil Center.
“It’s a little bit south of Pinhook and on the outskirts of Lafayette. But there’s so much growth in that area, and it’s also convenient for a couple that may work in New Iberia or off of Highway 90 or in Lafayette,” says Realtor Charlie Baudoin of Van Eaton & Romero. “A lot of people want to live in Lafayette but work out of town so this is convenient for a couple like that.”
The Home: Slab foundation, siding of brick, stucco and hard-plank with a covered patio in the back and a two-car garage. The living area, kitchen and office have 12-foot ceilings and the master bathroom is spacious. Appliances are stainless steel, and there are custom cabinets in the kitchen. It’s full of the kind of touches buyers are looking for, according the Baudoin. Think granite countertops and a separate shower and tub in the master bath. “Big is not always better in that price range,” Baudoin says. “It’s the amenities and finishes rather than over size spaces.”
