About This 1879 Historic House In Lake Charles Louisiana
Step back in time with this meticulously preserved 3-story historic residence otherwise known as the Reid Home! This extraordinary piece of Lake Charles’ history dates back to 1879 and is on the Historical Registry. Immerse yourself in the charm of yesteryears with its original Louisiana Cypress siding exterior, beautiful original pine hardwood flooring & cypress molding/staircase/doors throughout, 5 custom fireplaces each with full ornate mantels…some adorned with imported marble, original plantation walk through window to the porch in the master bedroom, 11 & 12 foot ceilings, and wrap around porches.
From 1910-1913, the third story served as the Judge’s chambers and jailhouse. The home also features a “Carriage House” with 2 extra living quarters, which presents an opportunity for additional income. With recent updates to the electrical and plumbing systems as well as a new roof & a few other upgrades (see supplements), this timeless treasure seamlessly blends the past with modern convenience. This home exhibits unparalleled craftsmanship and details that you will simply have to see to believe. Add a little TLC and make it your own or even snatch it up for a historical Airbnb and unlock additional potential income opportunities.
