Relaxed Living In Baton Rouge’s Perkins Lane

Mixed-use infill developments; smaller lots close to retail and work; built outdoor spaces with more amenities; and indoor/outdoor connections through oversized windows, glass doors, covered porches, and balconies. These are features increasingly requested by homeowners over the past several years, according to the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Home Design Trends Survey. Architect Mike Sullivan has been creating communities for more than 25 years and knows from experience what the AIA reports confirm: For most homeowners, active lifestyles and being near the action is more important than ever.

Perkins Lane, Sullivan’s newest community design, fits all of those trends with gorgeous detailing and durable, high-quality finishes to boot.
