Look in Shadows of Ascension. Very nice homes and builder is good. I'm an agent and live in seven oaks. My cousin and another client bought from me in there and love it. Brand new elementary across the street.

Not during school hours but it isn't far off from that time if I go down 933, cross over 42 onto Parker, then take Parker till whatever that road is that leads b Sammy's and then cross over Airline. A 10 minute drive turns into 15-20 minute drive, if it takes you longer then you drive slow or caught in construction/train.

Brah, that is probably 10 miles. You have to average 60mph to make that in 10 minutes. That doesn't take into account the worst red light in AP at Old Jeff/Airline. I get the construction has made it worse, but no way you make that in 10 minutes, my bet is 15-20 average.

Are you dead set in living in a "neighborhood"?

Is that not a clusterf*** on 73 or what in the afternoons? It's a nightmare to get off 73 to Airline whether you use 621, Duplessis, Post Office or 73. A Mess from 5-630.

Longwood, Overland Trl, Rennaisance, Provence. All good around there. Obviously 7 oaks is legit. Very close to 10. Just steer clear of Southwood Village and any of those hoods off Duplessis EXCEPT those streets off Silverstone. Nice little neighborhood along Duplessis where the other hoods are old and crappy or new and CRAP construction.


Someone else mentioned commute. If you are trying to get to 10 in the mornings and go east, I would recommend looking around where I'm suggesting as well as the Dutchtown hoods off 621 up to L Landry and down to 74. Otherwise look at Geismar or Gonzales. Some of the hoods south of EA are actually in St. Amant School district for some obvious reasons if you are looking at nicer areas.

I lived off Moody Dixon, then gf/now wife lived off C Braud. Made the drive more than a few times. That was a 9+ mile drive. There is NO WAY you can make it in 10 minutes. It is not able to happen, especially the route you are saying. It's not a matter of traffic or construction, you would be doing 70 down Henry road or the curves on 930. Both of those things I would pay money to see you do.

We are definitely targeting a subdivision. The family likes the neighborhood feel.

We are really starting to consider the geismar area. It seems you can get a lot for your money out there. Not much to do, but not all that far to gonzales or prairieville areas.

Geismer area has more poor blacks, that's why.

There is a new bowling alley/laser tag/sports bar/arcade opening in Gonzales this winter. A movie theatre will eventually be added to that project. As far as bars, check out Park Place and the Tiki Hut. I would look at Galvez if I were you.

Living in AP and hanging out in Gonzales is terrible. The whole reason to live in Pville is so you can go to BR for anything, yet don't have to live there. There is no reason to ever have to go to g-town when living in prairieville/geismar.

I would look to eastern Pville over geismar if the price is guiding this decision.
