Materra in Baton Rouge - Live Well in Materra!

Have you taken a drive down Airline Hwy in Baton Rouge recently? Or stopped by Woman’s Hospital? If so, you probably noticed signs about “Materra” and wondered what they were all about. 

Materra is a new community in Baton Rouge unlike any other in a highly sought out, prime location. It is currently being developed to feature a wide variety of residential, new construction homes — including cottages, neighborhood homes, townhomes and multi-family buildings. The development will also include a host of amenities and lifestyle enhancements. 

As one of the leading home builders in this South Louisiana community, AP Dodson has the unique opportunity to offer a new take on modern home design. We also have lots available if you’re interested in starting from the ground up with your new construction home. 

What does Materra in Baton Rouge Offer? 

In the Materra community, you will find your place to recharge, relax, get fit and live well. Here’s just some of what Materra has to offer: 

  • Residential Opportunities: A wide range of housing to fit a variety of lifestyles and age groups. From cottages and neighborhood homes to custom homes, Materra offers the perfect solution for every resident.
  • Commercial Opportunities:  A vibrant town shopping and dining experiences plus green spaces to take the dogs for a walk or watch the kids play. 
  • Civic Opportunities: BASIS Charter school is perfectly located at an entry of the Materra community. Families can walk their children to school with rigorous academic and cultural programming.

There will be plenty of things to fall in love with within this new community. The location, each one-of-a-kind home design, all the family-friendly amenities including the park, playground, pool, and pavilion, are just a few. You’re never going to want to leave! 

AP Dodson – Design that Stands Out in Materra

AP Dodson is an exclusive builder in Materra. These homes are designed with open floor plans to be generously spacious, yet easy to maintain and offer up to 2500 square feet of living space. AP Dodson offers many upgrades including tile, plumbing, trim, hardware plus adding outdoor kitchen spaces. 

We recently chatted with AP Dodson’s Lead Designer Kristina Petit. Here’s some of what she  said about Materra: 

 I think all of the AP Dodson communities are wonderful family friendly communities. Cypress Lakes has a great playground, Meadows at Oak Grove has a great community pool… But I am a bit jealous of the Materra community – great location for families and professionals in south Baton Rouge!

Mood Boards

It’s helpful for individuals to see a glimpse of the finished product before committing to new construction. It’s one thing to see the blueprints of a build, it’s a different experience to see what colors, finishes and hardware will be featured in the home. This is why AP Dodson provides mood boards to help clients visualize what a home will look like. Take a peek at some of the mood boards for Materra here:
