This Tara-esque Baton Rouge Mansion is a Louisiana Legend
This Tara-esque beauty has been known as the Long house for decades, even though it’s been the better part of a century since it was inhabited by anyone related to the Louisiana governor who set its construction into motion.
Huey P. Long was assassinated in 1935, shortly after purchasing this prized bit of land in the heart of Baton Rouge on University Lake. Though it was inhabited by Long’s widow and their son, former Senator Russell P. Long, for a few years, it’s unclear how much input the outspoken governor had on the design of the 8,465-square-foot mansion. What we do know is that the home is the work of by Weiss, Dregfous and Seiferth Architects, who also designed the Louisiana State Capitol.
With four bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, subsequent improvements haven’t diminished a bit of the home’s original charm and grandeur. Highlights include a luxurious inground pool, a modern chef’s kitchen, a game room, impeccable gardens and more.
The property is currently listed by Ann Mullins of CJ Brown Realtors for $3.9 million.
