Lakeview Real Estate & Info

Lakeview

History and Accommodations
Located conveniently between Metairie and beautiful City Park, the Lakeview neighborhood has responded especially well to the recent upturn in the local economy. This is due, no doubt, largely to its ideal location and the many new and skillfully renovated homes including many with larger oversized sizes lots.

The population of Lakeview increased dramatically after the end of WW2 as GIs were returning to their families, filling up the bungalow style structures that were so popular with middle-income families at the time. Many of these older homes have been replaced with new homes, condominium units, and other more modern accommodations. Of those original homes that remain, many have been extensively renovated and refitted with the type of modern amenities buyers would expect in a newer and higher-quality home.
