Welcome to Madewood Plantation House

A National Landmark in Napoleonville LA


Madewood, the great Henry Howard plantation house just outside Napoleonville, Louisiana, was built by the Pugh Family in 1846. They lived there until 1896 and are buried on the property; Madewood was restored, and has been cared for by the Harold K. Marshall Family and descendants Keith and Millie Marshall for the last 53 years . . . since 1964.

The upper gallery of the Greek Revival masterpiece

They have created a home for themselves and for friends and guests who share their passion for music and the arts and architecture and have brought Madewood alive . . . simply by living there and welcoming guests from around the world.
Now those pleasures can be enjoyed by fortunate new owners.

The Pugh Family cemetery to the rear of the carriage house is fenced and family members and others are buried there in handsomely marked tombs and gravesites.

The back of the home opens on to a huge brick patio

The main house is a mansion in its grand scale, artistry, and beauty, and massive in size. It retains a feeling of authenticity, and is comfortable without telephones, televisions or modern intrusions in the bedrooms. Like most Howard buildings, it is so well built that it is still plumb and level. It is a step set back in time.

Several outbuildings have been brought in to join the original brick carriage house, in the acreage around the house, creating a small usable plantation complex. Rosedale, a small 1916 Queen-Anne-style home; Charlet House, an 1822 cottage, an early building; a blacksmith’s house, and a newer cottage are surrounded by lofty live oaks, brick patios and garden beds.

The 1822 Charlet house has three bedroom suites

The main house floor plan features a center hall, double parlors to the right, and an elegant cross hall to the left, with a music room and a downstairs bedroom suite; the single story north wing holds a library, huge ball room, the original kitchen and service rooms. Upstairs in the main portion are four guest bedroom suites.

The south wing houses a smaller current today’s kitchen, an owner’s suite with sitting room, bedroom, two large walk-in closets and a bathroom with steam shower and sauna, and a screened-in gallery.

Welcome to 337 W. Moody

337 W. Moody

Twenty years ago, the solid and comfortable 1933 house set in the mature gardens and plantings of 337 W. Moody, and overlooking the picturesque serpentine lake, was tripled in size, and given a handsome contemporary makeover. Today it is a stunning board and batten monochromatic dwelling on the exterior with a calming clean open and well-lit interior.

The architect for the project was the well-respected Tore Wallin of Perez Architects in New Orleans. In his plan, a one story private master bedroom wing was added on the lake side; and a two-story guest wing was connected, with a covered patio between, to the other end of the long rambling structure.

Covered Patio

The center part, which is the original house, has a living room and a staff bedroom on one side, a huge dining room and kitchen on the other, and two bedrooms on the second floor. There is a wonderful old fashioned screened in porch filled with wicker furniture that ties it all together and overlooks the back gardens.

The one-story master bedroom wing has a large sitting room/office, a spacious master bath area, and the master bedroom itself with a huge bay window sitting area over-looking the grounds and the lake.

Galley Kitchen

The guest wing turns to the back and connects to the carport with a huge covered patio between. The guest wing has a large pool room entertaining area with an upstairs bedroom area, and a separate guest room with a separate entrance on the ground level…and tons of closets and storage areas.

The long and asphalt paved entrance drive circles around the house, with the carport and parking area on the kitchen end, and a drive down to the 30’ x 40’ metal workshop and garage building, tucked away on the other.

It is a handsome and comfortable estate which has been lovingly developed and maintained.
