Lakeview Real Estate
The Lakeview community boasts of spacious homes, apartments, and condos, most of which are within walking and biking distance to the shore of the lake. One of the unique characteristics of this neighborhood is the architectural variety of the homes, which are more modern than in the historic districts of the city. Gracious columns, lines, and archways framed with subtropical greenery greet one upon arriving home.
Living in Lakeview
Residents of Lakeview have two magnificent parks at their disposal, the New Basin Canal Park and City Park. Both have expansive areas for relaxing, playing, and exercising. Here one may find quiet from the bustle of the day. Within City Park in Lakeview, off of Filmore Ave, is Equest Farm, a premier riding club serving the greater New Orleans area. Yet, horseback riding is only one of the opportunities of Lakeview. The community is perfect for those who avidly pursue boating, sailing, and fishing. Home to two yacht clubs, Lakeview boasts of the second oldest yacht club in the United States, Southern Yacht Club. Destroyed in Hurricane Katrina, the clubhouse was rebuilt in 2009 and the tradition continues today. Indeed, Lakeview has a unique personality from its proximity to the salt water of Lake Ponchartrain. Walking among the homes, one picks up scents of magnolias and tropical flowers blended with the salt water of the Lake. The effect is intoxicating.
