Historic Downtown Baton Rouge Home Almost Restored

One of the historic Baton Rouge real estate landmarks is the Beale House in downtown Baton Rouge. This home in historic Beauregard Town is a treasure that was almost destroyed by fire over a year ago. Since then, damage from rain had only intensified matters. But the owner, Julia Sims, perservered in restoring the home built in 1830 by Judge Robert G. Beale and purchased by Sims’ family in the 1940s. The Advocate reports on the uniqueness of the Beale House to the Beauregard Town area:

As time went on, the old houses in the Beauregard Town area were torn
down for development, leaving the Beale House as one of the few
remnants of its generation.

Baton Rouge Communities Have Access to Green Building

Green building is a trend that is spreading across the nation as more people become interested in practices that save both money and the planet. Baton Rouge communities have access to green building resources as well. The State Energy Office provides education and studies to help promote green building practices in Baton Rouge and around the state. Realty Times explores some of the benefits of green building:

Green homes use less energy, water, and other natural resources; creates less waste; and are healthier and more comfortable for the occupants than homes built otherwise.

In addition to saving homeowners money on the utility bill, keeping occupants cool during heatwaves and toasty during cold spells, green homes are also planet-friendly.
