Homes Near Prairieville

It’s all about the schools, the cost of homes, and that little bit of “country” that make Prairieville one of the most desirable places to live in the Greater Baton Rouge area.  Prairieville is right on the other side of the parish line between Ascension and East Baton Rouge.  There are two main roads connecting us … Airline Highway and I-10 … and a couple of back roads for those of us trying to avoid the traffic. And, as it’s name would suggest, there’s land for new construction.  It’s not surprising that last year 35% of all the homes sold near Prairieville were new homes.

One of the reasons why homes near Prairieville are so popular is because the public schools in the area are among the highest rated in the state.
