Hi,

I would be relocating to Baton Rouge in next week and need some help in finding a good apartment. The job location is on essen lane and hence would prefer apartments to be within 10/12 miles of essen lane. Prefer a 2 Bed / 2 Bath between 800-1200 USD with build in washer/ dryer/ refrigerator. Property should have maintenace included.I heard that in many apartment complexes , cable/basic telephone etc is included. If so , that would be good. Please advise on choices available.

Thanks for the attention

You should be able to find something easily.
For the most part, student properties near LSU's campus tend to offer cable and phone with the rent. The Warwick on Jefferson offers both plus electricity and it isn't a student property. 1BRs are running for about $900 though. You could probably find something near that and a 2 BR somewhere else and just pay the electric. For the most part, it's fairly cheap in the apartments. I stay below $100 about 90% of the time in the summer (even less in the winter). Most places around here also include water/garbage so you usually don't have to worry about that.
On Essen itself, there is Chateau Dijon and Cobblestone. Mansions in the Park is down the road near Essen and Perkins. Plenty of places on Bluebonnet and Jefferson/Citiplace alike. Those areas, you typically can't go wrong although some properties are better than others of course.
If you have specific questions about areas or properties, just ask. We'll try to help.
Best of luck in your move.

Thanks Darylwi. I am looking for apartments which are not more than say 6 years old , close to shopping (1 mile) , first floor , open spaces with greenery , gated community , access to fitness centre , have a patio where minimum a chair and small table can be placed . In future , am planning to attend courses at LSU so access to LSU would be a criteria , though not the most important one. Which apartments would you suggest on Bluebonnet / Jefferson? Or other near by properties , with in 10 miles of Essen lane? I can then plan to visit these apartments and finalize . Thanks for the help.

Anything on Corporate/Jefferson near Towne Center and Bocage is new, usually gated, close to everything. You'll probably pay $1200 easy for a 2br since 1br for those typically run closer to $1000 now. Millenium Towne Center, Reserve at Cedar Lodge, there's a new place there too that I don't know the name of yet. Gates at CitiPlace is in that neighborhood too. Maison Bocage is down the road on Jefferson.
On Bluebonnet you can check Park on Bluebonnet, Perkins Rowe, Turnberry Place.
On Essen or Perkins, you can check Mansions in the Park, Cobblestone, and Citiscape.
All are in close enough proximity to LSU that the commute shouldn't be a problem. All are also in good areas of town close to services.
