One of just a few custom homes in Baton Rouge designed by Barry Fox, known for his architectural designs around the country. "It's all in the details" of this stately home located in University Acres on over 1.5 acres of park like setting. The owner insisted on preserving the area originally planted by Steele Burden to become part of the magnificent yard seen from the house. The front foyer is well proportioned with a wall of glass overlooking the front courtyard opposite the office with a wall of built-ins. Every door is solid and every door knob is pewter. Enter into the Living Room and you'll appreciate the ceilings, slate herringbone floors, antique mantle, and wall of built-in shelves enjoying a view of mature trees and walking paths. Both the Dining Room and Sunroom join the living room, making this a perfect home for entertaining or enjoying extended family. All bedrooms are downstairs - each with en suite baths and closets. There is also a floored and framed second level with plans for three more bedrooms. The Dining Room has a full BUTLERS PANTRY with built-in drawers and cabinets, ice maker, marble counters and 2 walk-in closets. The Sunroom accommodates 2 sitting areas with park views and glass french doors leading onto an impressive pergola. The kitchen is full of storage with a long island. The appliances include a subzero refrigerator/freezer, ice maker, Thermador double oven, Dacor 5 burner gas cooktop, 2 sinks, fireplace with stone mantle, painted cabinets and marble counters. Priced at appraised value.

Highlands

A part of the Greater Baton Rouge area, some consider the Highlands the perfect balance of life. Here, you’ll enjoy all the amenities of Louisiana’s capitol city while appreciating the slower pace of suburban life. 

While looking for your dream home in the Highlands, be prepared to set some time aside, because there are SO MANY options! As one of Baton Rouge’s largest communities, there is truly a home for everyone here. Looking for country club living; you can find it. New constructions in planned communities; you can find it. Beautifully preserved plantation-style homes; you can find it. Creole cottages? Ranch-style? Large lots with acres of green space? You can find it all!

With these home options comes an amazing community to call home. Like most Louisiana areas, the Highlands neighborhood has a network of hiking and biking trails and is incredibly walkable. Of course, you’re never far away from the woods and bayous that are prime for hunting, fishing and kayaking. Your kids will love this area too with an array of parks and fun things for them to experience like the Burden Center’s Children’s Garden. 

Location is key here at the end of the day. You’re never far away from the booming city of Baton Rouge, home to some of the state’s best restaurants, music and art scenes, festivals and markets. With the proximity to the capitol city combined with the unbelievable real estate options and suburban lifestyle, the Highlands neighborhood is an amazing place to put down your roots!
