Own a piece of Baton Rouge history on Highland Road just south of LSU! Previously known as “The Oaks,” this 6.18 acre property presents the right buyer with a rare opportunity to acquire acreage with Centennial Oaks along the historic Highland Road corridor, not far from the south gates of LSU. Gorgeous live oaks shade the driveway leading up to the home which has been owned by the Duplantier family since the early 1800’s. The live oaks provide a beautiful frame for the 4,034 square foot, two-story home, built more than 170 years ago. The elevated front porch has operating shutters separated by three tall windows in the center. Six square columns stand sentinel below three dormers on the roof. Formal dining room. The home’s original woodburning fireplace is below the original brick chimney in the downstairs living room, while the large kitchen had been updated several years ago with a Chambers electric cooktop and double wall ovens. The kitchen also has an abundance of cabinetry, dishwasher and double sink below large windows that view the side yard. The master suite has a walk-in closet and sitting area, while an additional two bedrooms with ceiling fans and a hall bath are located upstairs. The home also has a double garage and an inside laundry room. This is truly a rare opportunity to obtain one of Baton Rouge’s most familiar landmarks on Highland Road. The bonus is six-plus acres along one of the most desirable residential locations in the city. Call today if you’d like to see this amazing, historical Highland Road property!
