Community

Highlands

A part of the Greater Baton Rouge area, some consider the Highlands the perfect balance of life. Here, you’ll enjoy all the amenities of Louisiana’s capitol city while appreciating the slower pace of suburban life. 

While looking for your dream home in the Highlands, be prepared to set some time aside, because there are SO MANY options! As one of Baton Rouge’s largest communities, there is truly a home for everyone here. Looking for country club living; you can find it. New constructions in planned communities; you can find it. Beautifully preserved plantation-style homes; you can find it. Creole cottages? Ranch-style? Large lots with acres of green space? You can find it all!

With these home options comes an amazing community to call home. Like most Louisiana areas, the Highlands neighborhood has a network of hiking and biking trails and is incredibly walkable. Of course, you’re never far away from the woods and bayous that are prime for hunting, fishing and kayaking. Your kids will love this area too with an array of parks and fun things for them to experience like the Burden Center’s Children’s Garden. 

Location is key here at the end of the day. You’re never far away from the booming city of Baton Rouge, home to some of the state’s best restaurants, music and art scenes, festivals and markets. With the proximity to the capitol city combined with the unbelievable real estate options and suburban lifestyle, the Highlands neighborhood is an amazing place to put down your roots!
