Property descriptionhistoric albania mansion
As you turn into the driveway, shrouded by mature oaks, and catch your first glimpse of Albania Mansion. To think of what the walls of this home, built in 1842, could tell us about the history of Louisiana and its people is quite a thought. This lovely gem of Louisiana sits on the banks of Bayou Teche, like a king on a throne. Located in Jeanerette, just outside of New Iberia, this home has stood the test of time and is a perfect representation of Greek Revival architecture.Situated on 8.35 acres and surrounded by hundred-year-old oaks and other native Louisiana trees, Albania welcomes you in. This home features at least five bedrooms and four baths, with 10,357 of square feet of living area. The gorgeous entry hall stretches three stories high with a grand stairwell that the entire house revolves around. Galleries, a dining room and bedrooms flank the grand hall on all floors. Built with the finest craftsmanship of it's day, Albania features eight fireplaces (capped) with original marble mantles, cypress flooring and oak wood walls with plaster on the exterior. The ceilings of the three stories are all twelve feet high and the house is graced with many lovely chandeliers, as well as solid wood pocket doors, spacious closets, and many other unique features. Off the kitchen, youll find the original kitchen that was once located apart from the home, closer to the bayou. Its now attached and would make a great artist studio, work room or sunny breakfast area. There are four porches on the home that comprise another 3,163 feet of gross area for the home. These porches are so spacious that entertaining with their use would allow you to add another fifty people to your guest list. The view from these porches is breathtaking. If youre a movie buff, youll probably recognize this home from All The Kings Men, as it was featured throughout the movie. Also located throughout the grounds you will find a 560 square foot detached guest house, doll house, three storage buildings and a greenhouse with attached butterfly garden. Visit this home today and experience one of Louisiana's finest homes from days gone by.
