I was looking at a mapping API article today and remembered that I’d seen some beautiful houses around University Lake at LSU when I was down there recently. I ran around different parts of the lake each day for 3 days and saw some amazing houses on the edge of the LSU campus.

A few were for sale, so I did a quick search to see what they cost.

Here’s one I ran past on S Lakeshore Dr. Price: $2,250,000.


A nice Southern mansion from the looks of it. I was thinking 1, maybe 1.5mm, but 2.25 is something. Not sure if the economy is doing bad in LA with those prices, though there were quite a few for sale.

Another one is a bargain at $995,000.

It made me wonder what other things cost near universities.  My alma mater, the University of Virginia, has a few on famous Rugby Road. Here’s a half acre one for $924,000.

As much as I enjoyed college life, not sure I’d want to live that close to a college anymore. I think I’d rather be like one of my finance professors. He retired from Wall St and bought a few hundred acres outside of Charlottesville. That’s more my style.
