Description

A true waterfront retreat in the heart of Baton Rouge! Very few homes actually have one of the LSU lakes in their own backyard and this home is one of them! Lush, private gardens frame the views of Lake Crest in the backyard, and you also have a clear view across University Lake. This brick and stucco traditional house, with original mid-century modern details, is located at the northern gates of LSU off Darlymple Drive within walking distance to the University. It also provides easy access into Downtown Baton Rouge. See the lights of Tiger Stadium and hear the chimes of Memorial Tower from your patio! Paddle board, canoe, and fish from the banks of your own yard! Direct access to parks, bike paths, jogging trails, and spectacular sunrise and sunset lake views. This beautiful home features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus an office/study. You will love the Cypress millwork and mid-century mantel with exposed brick in both the living room and office/study. All of the living spaces in this two-story home have solid wood flooring, no carpet throughout! The modern, updated, and bright kitchen features exposed wood beam opening into the large den/sitting area, solid hardwood cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel JennAir gas range, and Bosch appliances. The dining room is very spacious with plenty of room for a large table and chairs, plus it has a bay window situated to give broad lake views. The oversized master bedroom has an adjacent sitting room with exposed beams and vaulted ceilings with direct lake views. Bathrooms have marble flooring with marble bath and shower surrounds. New roof installed July of 2021. The owner/architect has preserved the original character of the home while adding modern updates to it. Having been owned by generations of one family for over 70 years, this is a rare opportunity to own this home with direct backyard access to the University Lakes.
