Description


Magnificent Southern Colonial Mansion! Nestled on an entire city block, this estate reminds visitors of Tara, the majestic plantation home featured in the movie, ''Gone With The Wind''. The original home on the estate was thought to be built in 1858 for Dr. Estorge, a prominent physician during the Civil War. The current mansion was commissioned to be built by Edward B Dubouisson and completed in 1927.The Dubouisson historic mansion offers 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, majestic pillars, 5 working fireplaces, a sweeping central staircase, butler's pantry, kitchen, formal dining room, breakfast room, a ladies parlor, a grand parlor, sauna, walk-in attic, master suite with a separate sleeping area and an old wine cellar. There are expansive grounds that include 200+ year old oak trees, cedar and magnolia trees, mature landscaping including an orchard, a swimming pool, a spacious back yard with a carriage house (complete with a beautiful horse-drawn carriage) surrounded by a privacy fence. This stately Colonial Revival home continues to exude an air of southern gentility and sophistication. The Dubuisson Mansion is arguably one of the most photographed homes in Louisiana. It has been the preferred site of many prestigious fundraisers and its opulent setting has helped charities and several politicians raise thousands of dollars. Edward Benjamin Dubouisson was a wealthy and prominent plantation owner (his plantation encompassed 3,000 acres), banker and politician. He commissioned this home to reflect his affluent and respectable status in society. Today, the Dubouisson Estate remains one of Louisiana's finest testaments to a bygone era.
