Every now and again while browsing the internet, you'll stumble upon photos of a gorgeous house and wish you could own it. Well, you can own a wonderful Carencro home that we recently found while scrolling through Facebook.

On Sunday, Stevie Gauthier posted photos of his home to announce that he and his wife are putting it on the market.

That home is located at 509 Trappey Road--off Kidder Road in northern Lafayette Parish near the St. Landry Parish line. It is the second-to-last home on a cul-de-sac and sits high on the Coteau Ridge. The backyard is surrounded by the former Woodland Hills Equestrian Center. Gauthier describes the 1.2-acre lot as "very private" both because of its secluded location and because the property is lined by mature, shade-providing trees.

An 8x12 storage shed sits across the driveway from the two-and-a-half car garage. The garage features extra space to hold a lawnmower or to use as storage.
