Description from owner

Restored & updated c. 1890 Cajun/Creole Cottage on the bank of the historic Bayou Teche. In culturally rich Arnaudville LA. Original art, high ceilings, milk paint, full kitchen. Access to major highways. Walk-able town and kayaking. Near Lafayette.

The Sunset House at Les Deux Mondes is a fully restored and modernized traditional 19th century Cajun Creole farm cottage, which was moved from 20 miles away to her current location and is now overlooking the lovely Bayou Teche.

The restoration and updating respected her roots, yet has modern amenities. Sustainable techniques and materials were used when possible and practical, including traditional made-on-site milk paint, tung oil varnished longleaf pine floors and recycled cellulose insulation. A gorgeous kitchen counter milled from a giant red oak log that was diverted from the landfill, as well as original artwork from local artists give this house a comfortable and warm feeling.

The house also features a fully equipped kitchen (new electric stove, new fridge, new blender, new microwave oven, new toaster oven, traditional Cajun/Creole French drip pot or programmable coffee maker, wok, etc...) ceiling fans, and a central "mini-split" unit, which provides quiet air conditioning and heating throughout the house. In the bathroom, you will also find a washing machine, an iron with an ironing board, and a hair dryer.

A full service grocery store, churches, fine dining and casual restaurants, bar, and green grocer are all within easy walking distance.You can relax on the porch which overlooks edible landscaping and the beautiful Bayou Teche.

This home speaks across generations.
