The address says it all. The homes that grace Highland Road, from LSU to Country Club of Louisiana, are some of Baton Rouge’s finest residences. In that tradition, this +/- 19.6 acre site could be the location for a single private residence, a family camp, or a new residential subdivision. Walk the property and it’s natural beauty will take your breath away. You’ll find mature trees, a pond surrounded by cypress trees, and native flora. In addition to the owner's primary residence, the Estate includes two residential rental properties and the Frameworks Gallery. There are also 6 old barns and an old cottage home on the property with wood that could be repurposed and creatively used in new residential or community structures. The site is a treasure you’d never expect to find in zip code 70808, just 3.6 miles from LSU and 3.1 miles from Our Lady of Lake Regional Medical Center.
The land is level, located on the “high side” of Highland Road, and borders Highland Road, Magnolia Wood Avenue, and Menlo Drive. It’s zoned A-1 residential. A concept for a new residential subdivision is included in the documents on this site. The site can generously support 41 home sites with a large pond and community green space as a focal point. Portions of the Highland Road frontage are designated "neighborhood center" in the East Baton Rouge Parish Future Use Plan. There are .34 acres of wetlands. The wetlands determination and estimate of mitigation costs is also included in the documents. The property is located in flood zone X and is protected by the levee.
