How do I know Les Miles is almost officially done in Baton Rouge with his LSU era? His 4,375 sq. ft. cool house is for sale at $1,495,000 and Les took the Kansas job so life is going to be different in 2019 for the Miles family in Lawrence, Kansas. You know what you get for that price? You get extreme privacy at the Les Miles Baton Rouge compound. Take a look at the back yard. Pool and a sliver of grass in case you have a dog that like to take a dump on a slice of real turf.
Les must’ve told the builder he didn’t want his neighbors watching him swim or eat grass because this might be one of the tightest compounds I’ve ever seen. The rest of the house is brand new cool with big windows, clean lines, all the high-end finishes you’d expect from a top SEC head coach.
Amazing magazine worthy “California Cool” This one-year-old home is located on a corner lot in the prime area of The Settlement at Willow Grove. This open floor plan features lots of tall metal windows that allow for a vacation feel year round! The versatile entry hall flows into a multi purpose room (a living room, dining room, office, etc. ) and opens out to the stunning cabana/courtyard, L-shaped pool, and outdoor kitchen.
The very large keeping/kitchen has tall ceilings, huge quartzite island, grey stained cabinets to the ceiling, butler’s pantry, wet bar, walk-in pantry, and a wall of windows with a fabulous view of the pool and courtyard. The special keeping room is huge with a special dry stacked stone fireplace. The large downstairs master suite also has fabulous views and connects to the pool/courtyard area.
Tall barn doors separate the exquisite master bath with marble floors, two sides for dressing, and a free standing soaking tub with stone feature to the ceiling. The large master closet has lots of space and built-ins. Also, downstairs, off the back hall, is a guest bedroom with a private bath. Upstairs leads to a central den/playroom/game room area, two bedrooms, two baths, and a separate computer nook. The corner lot allows for guest parking in the rear and a three-car garage. Custom draperies and window covering and all mounted televisions remain.
I did a little investigating and it appears the master bedroom is just off the backyard for a quick snag of a fresh piece of grass. It’s like Les and his wife told the builder to make the house like a W Hotel and limit the size of the yard. Your kids are going to love it.
Mortgage: You’re looking at about $8,900/mo. before you start talking about a pool boy, someone to clean the toilets and window washers.
