If you’re looking for a single family home with a yard close to LSU at an affordable price then any of DSLD’s homes are hard to beat. DSLD is a regional home builder with their roots in the Baton Rouge area. They are all about “affordable quality” and they take it seriously. Just about all of their communities in the Baton Rouge area have been overwhelmingly successful including Hunter’s Trace.
Don’t expect to “customize” these homes. Yes, you can pick your paint colors from available options, as well as counter tops, flooring, lighting, and cabinets. But you can’t move the walls, add a closet, or enlarge the master suite. DSLD just can’t deliver homes at this price if they deviate from the plan. But they have many highly functional and well laid out floor plans to choose from and they will deliver what they promised on time and in budget.
Hunter’s Trace is around 10 minutes from LSU, right down Burbank Drive. There is an impressive front entry, green space, and lakes. There are 3 and 4 bedroom options, but if you don’t see what you like you can pick a lot and a floor plan. Typical build times are 4 to 5 months.
