Have you dreamed about living on historic Highland Rd. in a landmark home; here is your opportunity. The home was built in 1932 by Lt. Gen. Troy Middleton Lt. and his wife Jerusha and purchased from the Middleton estate in 1980 by the current owners. General Middleton was the President of LSU from 1951 through 1962. The Middleton Library on the LSU campus is named after him for his contributions to LSU. Elements throughout the original part of the home were influenced by the time that Lt. General Middleton was stationed in the Philippines; tile flooring and plaster walls. Other original features that remain in the home today are the living room and dining room chandeliers, the solid marble fireplace mantel in the living room and the Louis XV mirror over this mantel and a large oversized mirror in the dining room. Lt. General Middleton and his wife traveled to Europe to purchase some of these items. Beginning in 1982 through 1985 the current owners initiated a large addition and remodel to the existing home. Mr. Sonny Town did this work. Mr. Town was the son of Mr. A. Hays Town. The addition included a new kitchen, breakfast area, Â½ bath, den, and upstairs multi-purpose room, with bath. This room can be used as a 5th bedroom. In the second phase, of the remodel, a study off the master bedroom and master bath were added. A sunroom that overlooks the lush backyard was also added in this phase. The home sits on 3.2 acres and includes a pond, a pool, a two car garage, an additional extra large garage that housed a motor home and a metal workshop which is located to the back of the property. The home is ready for the next chapter and for new owners to enjoy its history and charm. Call today to schedule a private tour of this unique home.
