Home SWEET! Home

Southern plantation house characteristics originated from French Colonial designs of the 18th and early 19th centuries. Some of the defining elements are their columns, sprawling porches and expansive balconies.

This outstanding home was recently custom built for Dr. Gary and Mrs. Sheri Wolf by MCH – Mansfield Custom Homes, and is presented to you by The Julie Short Team.

The design speaks to Sheri’s strong ties to Louisiana. The dirty kitchen and enclosed back porch are classic Louisiana style.

The dirty kitchen keeps the main kitchen sparkling clean while entertaining, which is so easy to do in this southern palace.

Guests can be found enjoying the massive front porch or the huge dining room, or they can gather in the open kitchen/living area or enjoy the enclosed back porch, which seems to be a favorite among visitors.

The attention to detail throughout this home is impressive; every inch of this 4,681-square-foot beauty has finishes and extras you just don’t see everywhere. There’s backlit granite in the bar, outstanding lighting and iron work, elegant cabinetry and tile work.

Sheri’s artistic giftings can be clearly seen in the wallpaper selections (YES wallpaper is back!) and décor. She says she and Gary spend most of their time enjoying the fireplace on the enclosed back porch and upstairs in the state-of-the-art media room (see page 52).

Set way back off the road with a circle drive surrounding a magnificent fountain, this dwelling is the true mark of southern royalty, and the best thing about this beautiful home is the feeling you get when you enter the property. It is warm and welcoming, just like its owners, the Wolfs. It feels oh, so comfortable, even as it clearly displays superb, elegant, upscale craftsmanship.
