1960s home in Lakeshore with wood paneling, a wet bar, and park views asks $1.3M

It’s kind of begging for a themed cocktail party

What’s old is new again, especially when it comes to this circa-1965 brick home in Lakeshore. Exposed cypress paneling is present throughout the home—from the den to the bathrooms. The wood paneling trend took off during the 1960s and 1970s and is having another moment now, which makes this home’s pristine, original paneling that much more of a selling point.

Another 1960s-era trend, the wet bar, finds expression in this five-bedroom, six-and-half bathroom home. Its wet bar is optimally positioned for entertaining, right by the entrance to the patio.

You’ll also find a formal living room and chandelier-hung dining room in the 5,908-square-foot manse, both with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the levee green space. The home’s location in the park-like, lake-adjacent neighborhood couldn’t be better.

An elevator whisks occupants to the second floor and third-floor attic. Each of the five bedrooms is equipped with its own bathroom.

A balcony spans the home’s second floor and overlooks the oak-shaded green space by Lake Pontchartrain.
