Single Family in Baton Rouge

A Louisiana Legend! Come own a piece of Louisiana History with this timeless home sitting on the premiere point of the LSU Lakes Peninsula. Originally built in the 1930's for Huey P. Long, this Classical Residence became the home to Long's widow and son, former Senator Russell P. Long following Huey Long's assassination. The home was designed by Weiss, Dregfous and Seiferth Architects, who also designed the Louisiana State Capitol. Over time, the home has been updated to today's standards but in perfect keeping with it's historical character and charm. The gardens are like a walk in paradise and rival any you will find in Baton Rouge. The views from the home and gardens capture the best views of the LSU Lakes. Upon approaching the home, which is totally private and gated - you are captivated by the stately appearance of the front elevation with the massive columns and front porch. Upon entering the foyer, you see the beautifully curved stairwell leading to the 2nd story. The 1st floor boasts a large living room, study, dining room, breakfast room, kitchen and den. All rooms are elegantly furnished! The kitchen includes a Sub-zero refrigerator, Viking Range and solid slate countertops. The second floor includes the Master Bedroom with his and hers baths plus a sitting room; 2 additional bedrooms with ensuite baths plus a glass porch/sitting room. The 3rd floor has a game room, 4th bedroom and bath. The basement houses the laundry, pool room and an additional office plus a bath. You may access the stunning pool area from this floor or from the first floor. The detached garage can house 4 cars and accesses the home by a breeze way.
