Located in the Southeast Louisiana city of Hammond, this quaint pondside home was designed by Holly & Smith Architects. The towering 1,250-square-foot structure sits on a 15-acre property and sits on the edge of an idyllic pond. The home looks out onto a peninsula of ten oak trees that perfectly frame the pond.

The Hammond home boasts a patio area with an outdoor kitchen in addition to a fireplace, all of which connects with the first storey of the house. The home's third floor also has an outdoor terrace that provides panoramic views of the property including the pond. The second level of the home houses the dining room, kitchen and living room with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the sprawling 15-acre property and all of its greenery.
