BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A lavish Baton Rouge home listed for $6,250,000 is a hidden gem with a view of Louisiana nature as it overlooks forests and a bayou.

The 8,670 square-foot home on 1100 Knollwood Drive has four bedrooms and seven bathrooms while sitting on 6.5 acres.

The Zillow listing describes the property designed by architect Bill Powell as a place “to live the best version of your life,” offering serenity from its nature-filled surroundings. Amelia Fine Homes LLC listing agent Matt Chaney said the home took several years to complete building.

Homeowners can get a view of outdoor beauty as there is a view of crepe myrtles and live oaks from the office and views of the forest and Bayou Duplantier from the third floor.
