What Are Some Interesting Facts About Jesse Duplantis’s House?
Jesse Duplantis’ home is the largest single family home in St. Charles Parish, Louisiana’s East Bank community. The two story, plantation-style house is a combined 34,986 square feet and is made of dry wall and steel beams.
The house is located at the corners of Ormond Boulevard and River Road in Destrehan, Louisiana and consists of 22,039 square feet of living space and 2,947 square feet of accessory areas. The house contains 25 rooms with two bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, a breakfast room and a music parlor on the first floor. The second floor consists of four bedrooms, three full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a fun room and a theater. The home also comes equipped with two double-car garages.
The building permit was filed in 2007 and construction of the house began in October 2008 by G & R Custom Homes. The house is actually owned by Duplantis’ tax-exempt ministry and the money used to build the home was donated, so Duplantis does not have to pay any taxes on the home. The house cost $3,000,000 to build, and Duplantis would have to pay over $33,000 in taxes a year if he legally owned the home.
