If you don’t know it’s there, it’s easy to overlook Lakewood Estates as an option for luxury living on the West Bank of New Orleans. Sitting on just 2 streets in Algiers, Lakewood Estates is a small gated community of less than 75 homes. Of those, less than 20 are golf course lots, with views of the rehabbed Lakewood Golf Course.
Because it’s such a small subdivision, it’s not often that homes are available for purchase, with an average of just 2 or 3 properties sold per year.
Custom construction is the norm here, with homes ranging from 10-30 years old. The average home has 4+ bedrooms and more than 3,500 square feet of living, with some of the larger homes clocking in at over 5,000 square feet.
Annual HOA dues of $1,500 pay for security personnel to man the gate and control entry to the neighborhood, providing peace of mind to the residents (and stopping your mother-in-law from popping in without notice).
In addition to the nearby golf course, you’ll be close to grocery stores (Rouse’s and Winn Dixie), retail shopping at Algiers Plaza (Walgreen’s, Petco, TJ Maxx, Ross and a locally owned men’s clothing store), and dining (Olive Branch Cafe, Buffalo Wild Wings, DiMartino’s Deli, Umi 2 Sushi, Applebee’s, El Paso Mexican Grill and a wide selection of fast food). Also nearby is Brechtel Park, with acres and acres of lagoons, playground areas and walking trails.
What’s the commute like?
If you work downtown, Lakewood Estates is a quick 10-15 minutes commute during normal hours and 15-30 minutes during rush hour. Travel time to Metairie is approximately 20 minutes and the airport is about 30 minutes away.
