Many neighborhoods in Baton Rouge, Louisiana have both historical significance and a suburban feel. There are several that were constructed as early as the 1800s and are listed on the National Register of Historic places. Also, being a college town, its real estate market is weighted more suburban dwellings that would appeal to professors and their families as well as reasonably priced apartments that students can afford rather than the typical urban office crush.
The neighborhood of Beauregard Town and the Garden District are examples of historic neighborhoods. Beauregard Town was commissioned in 1806 it has several historic homes that have been restored as tourist attractions. Many of the other homes have been renovated for use as offices. The Garden District is known for its Queen Anne architecture.
Spanish Town is even older. In fact, it is the oldest neighborhood in the city. Construction began in 1805, when Baton Rouge still belonged to Spain. Famous for being home to a variety of people of different social classes and lifestyles from starving artists to high-end attorneys, Spanish Town also puts on the city's largest Mardi Gras parade.
The cost of living in Baton Rouge, LA is slightly less than the national average, so real estate in any of these areas is perhaps within the means of more people than would think of it. The average price for a house in Baton Rouge is only $186,000, and renting an apartment would only cost around $700 per month. Very reasonable on the whole for a city of its size.
A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door. And the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there.
This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.
