Why Lakeview is a Top Pick

Lakeview is resilient. Much of this neighborhood was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, but since then it has sprung back to life with home transformations, new businesses, and new construction properties. As its name suggests, Lakeview lies along Lake Pontchartrain, where buyers can have their choice from a collection of upscale lakefront homes.

Anything you want, Lakeview offers it, including older and brand-new homes, condos, waterfront properties, and bungalows, though single-family homes are the majority on the Lakeview real estate market.

Highlights of Lakeview

From Swampland...

Fun fact: Much of the Lakeview area was covered in swampland before the 1900s. In the early 1900s, the New Basin Canal was built to connect Lake Pontchartrain with the heart of New Orleans, and the Lakeview neighborhood developed into a sought-after lakefront destination, starting with the West End resort.

...To Lakefront Paradise

Today, Lakeview still remains a desirable place to live along the lake. Waterfront homes connect residents with their desired lakefront activities and beautiful views, and commercial development soon followed the residential development. Lakeview is close to the New Orleans Yacht Club and Southern Yacht Club.
