The Orgeron family now has a place to live close to Tiger Stadium.
The two-story, European-traditional style home was finished in January as a spec build, says Jackie Braud, of the family-owned homebuilding company Traditions, LLC. It has five bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms and a large backyard with views of both a lake and the golf course in the back of the subdivision, says David Richardson, the Orgeron family’s agent with CJ Brown.
The article also states the LSU coach will have some high-profile neighbors, such as former Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, LSU athletic director Joe Alleva and LSU president F. King Alexander. Karlin reported the Orgerons will keep their home in Mandeville, La., as their primary residence.
The biggest kicker of purchase is how Orgeron decided to close the deal, according to his real-estate agent.
“Since Coach O took the job last year they wanted a place called home in Baton Rouge,” says Richardson, who was treated to a lunch of fried catfish, shrimp and gumbo from the Orgerons this week upon closing. “The timing was great. It was a good deal.”
Since the house costs only $900,000, the native Louisianan will have plenty of money to spend. Orgeron is scheduled to make $3.5 million in the 2018 season.
