Victorian Gothic Architecture

Ardoyne Plantation house is unique among all plantation homes in the South.    

Our unique home was built in 1888 and completed in 1894. The house is considered by the National Register of Historic Places to possibly be the largest and most elaborate remaining example of rural Victorian Gothic architecture in the state of Louisiana. 

This is one historical treasure one must see to believe, as it is filled with original family furniture and antiques.  Ardoyne contains twenty-one rooms including seven bedrooms, four bathrooms and twelve fireplaces. The first floor boasts sixteen foot cove-molded pine ceilings with octagonal patterns of beaded beams. 

Two rooms hold massive mirrors, one originating from a riverboat and another from a famous New Orleans hotel.   In the entrance hall is the unique hand-stamped wallpaper and novel hand-painted staircase.  Also throughout the home are the original chandeliers and Victorian Gothic Gasoliers.  The dining room fireplace hosts a pair of 

unusual hand-carved wooden griffins.
