So what makes a home “Acadian style“?
A traditional Acadian-style house has a steep-sloped roof and one to one-and-a-half stories of living space, often with a central hall and rear kitchen. Typically, Acadian homes feature covered front porches and window shutters.
The living spaces in this home are so calm and soothing.
Check out the reimagined kitchen with exposed beams, reclaimed wood cabinets, and marble countertops.
The centerpiece of this stunning kitchen is the powder blue La Cornue stove:
The southern elegance continues in the 4 bedrooms.
White is the favored color but it lends the space a clean and sophisticated feel, especially with those rich, warm wood floors.
A great bonus feature of this cottage is the 630 sq ft cedar screen-in porch addition with a sink & grill.
You can have true Cajun dinners out here!
What a great outdoor living space.
