Description of 431 E Bridge Street, Breaux Bridge, LA 70517

This Queen Anne home has been carefully updated for modern living and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Ransonet House was built in 1898 by Le'once Ransonet for his wife, Mary Gallagher. Le'once Ransonet was a noted merchant, successful business man and community leader. The home sits on 1.55 acres of bayou front property in historic downtown Breaux Bridge. It features a wrap-around front gallery and screened back porch with views of cypress trees and Bayou Teche. Some of the interior amenities include original wood flooring, double parlors with Eastlake mantles, original pocket doors, tall ceilings with antique fans, and other Victorian touches throughout. The kitchen offers custom cabinets, quartz countertops, farmhouse sink, wine cooler, tiled walls & backsplash, and an oversized keeping area with built-ins. The main floor features one bedroom and one full updated bathroom. The original staircase leads to a large master suite complete with a spacious library (which could be converted back to a 4th bedroom), cozy outdoor balcony, and a completely updated master bath with a large deep claw foot tub, laundry area and walk-in closet. An additional bedroom and full updated bathroom are also located on the second level. At the rear of the property is a small former "maison dimanche" which serves as a workout room. Also included with this estate is an adjacent courtyard which features a swimming pool and a 94' x 42' building that once served as the original Ransonet Mercantile Store. This building includes a 35' x 42' heated & cooled billiards room with a full kitchen & full bathroom and a 59' x 42' storage or garage area with an overhead door entering from Rees Street. The landscaped grounds are dotted with formal and semi-formal gardens teeming with Louisiana Irises, Camellias and mature trees. Breaux Bridge is the pastoral gateway to Cajun country. The city has wonderful restaurants, music and antique shops. The Ransonet home is in the middle of it all. Several schools are within short walking distance, along with grocery stores, boudin shops, hardware stores and places of worship. Breaux Bridge boasts all the accoutrements of a vibrant city, but is a small town right off of I-10 and ten minutes from Lafayette.
