If you fell in love with one of these beautiful places to stay along the gulf coast, wanted to open a bed and breakfast, or just enjoy nice things, then you might like this.

Built circa 1846, this Belle Alliance plantation just hit the market. Officials listed this property on The National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

It sits just outside of Donaldsonville, Louisiana, less than 1.5 hours from New Orleans.

The asking price is $2,450,000.

At first glance this giant Greek Revival—with Italianate influence—has a 5,000 square-foot wrap-around porch on its upper floor, covered sitting area on the ground floor, and a series large columns. It sits on a 10.5 acre lot.

This plantation home has undergone renovations under the last nine years. It has a traditional living and dining room, library, deep center halls, and media room. Architectural highlights include its plaster medallions, adorned plaster arches (especially in its foyer), crown molding, chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood flooring, and soaring ceilings.

Its gourmet kitchen has towering custom wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a modest breakfast area and island.

At 9,827 square feet, which is larger than any listed home in New Orleans, this palatial abode has 10 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. If you’re a fan of antebellum vibes, each of these super-sized bedrooms have exposed brick fire places and ceiling fans.

There’s still a lot more outside of house, including a guest home, green house, barn, and 21 oak trees.
