Property Description

History, Charm and Plenty of acreage! Constructed between the late 1700's and 1820, Dulcito Plantation is the epitome of southern charm and once served as a hospital during the Civil War. Venture down the driveway, past fields of sugarcane, a sense of serenity and calmness ensue. The two-story, raised creole cottage style home comes into view, nestled amongst a grove of majestic live oaks. The stately steps and wrap around porch welcome you. Enter the home through the foyer, featuring the original long leaf pine floors, original solid doors, and lovely transoms. Straight ahead is the dining room that includes an elegant chandelier and a gas fireplace with period cypress mantles. The updated kitchen features newer amenities, such as a Viking 6 burner stove, griddle gas stove, two ovens(one is convection), custom stainless-steel hood, Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator/ freezer, dishwasher, and ice maker. Two bedrooms downstairs including the master bedroom has an abundance of natural light and another fireplace with a lovely period cypress mantle. Attached to the master bedroom is an en-suite bathroom featuring a large soaking tub and separate shower. Three guest bedrooms PLUS a bonus room are located upstairs, along with two bathrooms. The current owner created a sunroom by completely enclosing the back porch with glass, allowing you to feel as though you are outside. All but a small section of the home has the original long leaf pine floor and original doors. The exterior of the home features spectacular, manicured gardens and landscapes. Have your afternoon tea on the swing overlooking the stocked pond or take a walk along the many paths through the arbor and pass the water fountain and fruit trees. Are you needing space for your equestrian activities? The estate contains a stable/barn with six horse stalls and horse arena. There is also a 5,500 sq ft metal pavilion building which has many uses from storage of large equipment to hosting outdoor gatherings and parties. The estate is +/- 54 acres giving the feel of complete seclusion and privacy, yet only minutes from New Iberia and Lafayette. Other nearby amenities include a regional airport, golf course and Spanish Lake. Part of this property is leased to sugarcane farmers and this will be an option for the new owners. Dulcito has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1994 and is one of the limited number(s) of remaining Pre-Civil War architecture in Iberia Parish. This is a rare opportunity to own a true, Louisiana French Creole planter's home. There is no other like it!
