The Cane River country located near Natchitoches, Louisiana, abounds in legend, folklore, and history. And the plantation homes built by the 18th-century settlers reflect the area's endearing character and charm.
This house plan exemplifies these old plantation houses. Raised on brick piers, the exterior retains the simple massing and hipped roofline of the originals, while the floor plan inside creates a mood of relaxed formality appropriate in modern times. The main level, with 10-foot ceilings, offers circulation between rooms. Upstairs bedrooms share a compartmentalized bath and spacious play area.
