One of just a few custom homes in Baton Rouge designed by Barry Fox, known for his architectural designs around the country. "It's all in the details" of this stately home located in University Acres on over 1.5 acres of park like setting. The owner insisted on preserving the area originally planted by Steele Burden to become part of the magnificent yard seen from the house.
