Historic Victorian On The Market
Logan Mansion seeks new owner SOLD!
Betsy St. Amant Haddox
There’s a new opportunity to purchase a slice of history. The historic Logan Mansion, built in 1897, is officially for sale. Located across from the Ogilvie- Wiener Mansion and one block down from the Municipal Auditorium, this local beloved Victorian beauty is on the market for a new person to call home. The 4,965-square-foot, four bedrooms, two-and-a-half bath house is listed for $375,000 by Realtor Jeri Little. But if it’s too much house for one family, the Victorian mansion could also be used as a boutique, cafe or bed and breakfast because of its location in the D-1-AC (Arts and Culture) sub-district in the city’s Unified Development Code.
Wealthy ice manufacturer and beer distributor Lafayette Robert Logan first built the mansion in 1897 for his family. The design is the work of Nathaniel Sykes Allen, who was one of Shreveport’s late-19th-century architects. This grand princess of a home offers 12-foot ceilings, a library, a parlor, panels of stained glass and beveled glass, a gorgeous mahogany grand staircase, glass transoms, original non-painted woodwork, a formal dining area, a walk-up attic, a full basement and an alluring upstairs balcony that demands romance. The roof and HVAC system have also had recent repairs, and the floor plan is original to the date of construction.
Billy and Vicki LeBrun purchased the home in 2005, and have been slowly restoring it to its lovely original grandeur ever since. The mansion was most recently used for mystery dinners, tea parties and photo shoots.
