    Property Details

    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.
