Governor's next address won't be 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
BATON ROUGE - It's not Washington, D.C. but the Jindals will have a new home in 2016 - in the upscale University Club neighborhood.
"U Club", as some call it, is an 18-hole golf course community. Homes are built around the course and a neighborhood version of Camp David: a clubhouse with a swimming pool and tennis courts.
While Governor Bobby Jindal campaigns for president, designers are working on his new home. The family could move in by the end of the year.
It will be up to the voters to decide if the Jindals will eventually live in the White House, but one thing is certain: his next address won't be 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Instead, his home will front a street with names like University Club Drive, Memorial Tower Drive, Tradition Avenue, Tiger Crossing Drive or Victory Hill Court.
Specifics about the size of the home were not released by the builder, Traditions, or the governor's office.
Traditions, owned by the Brauds of Baton Rouge, said they build about ten homes a year.
Governor Jindal, his wife and their three children will need to move out of the Governor's Mansion just after the new year.
On the University Club website, a featured home is for sale with an asking price of $507,900. It is listed as having three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths inside 4,100 square feet. Lots start at about $85,000.
