From the exterior columns and balconies to the interior antique brick, natural wood, winding staircase, and large fireplaces, 4809 Beau Lac Lane has "all of the Southern charm of a French Quarter home that you could possibly imagine, combines with an incredible lakefront view in Metairie," said Brittany English, of Mirambell Realty. 

English was the sales agent on the March 7 transaction in which the three-story, New Orleans-style home at 4809 Beau Lac Lane in Metairie sold for $1.375 million. Realtors Lindsay Santana and Bianca Bonilla, of Latter & Blum, were the listing agents. The home, built in 1979 but recently renovated, features five bedrooms, 41⁄2 bathrooms, and 5,636 square feet of living space. “It’s charming all over. This is a forever home for my clients. It’s private, at the end of a cul-de-sac, and the backyard has a pool, yard space, access to the levee, and a balcony that overlooks the lake,” said English. “The home checked all the right boxes.”

The first-floor entryway features a winding staircase, combined with pine wood and marble flooring.

There are two living areas, a dedicated office space, and a butler’s pantry equipped with terracotta wine storage racks and an island. The second floor features a bonus room connected to the primary bedroom, two additional bedrooms, and a balcony. The third floor features two bedrooms. The gated backyard has a pool, yard space, bathroom, and access to the levee.

“The exterior, panoramic views are impressive off the lake,” said English.

The front and back of the house both feature porches and balconies. Recent upgrades include a new roof, whole-house generator, and new water heaters. English said the nearby market in Metairie is doing well to start the new year, but insurance rates remain a major obstacle.

“Our transactions are still unfortunately hit or miss because of high insurance rates, but hopefully the new commissioner comes in and knocks it out the park to improve the market for single-family homes and first-time homebuyers,” said English.
