For the first time in over 100 years, smaller portions of this fantastic recreational property are available in less than its +/-2,189 acre entirety. Each of these blocks includes a mix of waterfront property ready for redevelopment or your exclusive reserve along the Chef Menteur Highway plus wildlife rich marsh. Water access via Chef Menteur Pass, the Marques Canal, and Bayou De Lasaire provide immediate access to the areas famous fishing and hunting within minutes of the dining and nightlife available only in New Orleans.
Block A: +/- 166.78 acres, asking $795,000. Features over 2,200 feet of frontage on Chef Menteur Pass, and +/- 4,300 feet on the Marques Canal. See link below to property webpage.
Location: This property is within the city limits of New Orleans. Downtown and the French Quarter are an easy drive away at +25-30 miles. New Orleans Lakefront Airport (6,880 runway) is full service and convenient, at approximately 20 miles away.
Wildlife: With the 610 square mile brackish estuary Lake Pontchartrain connecting to Lake Borgne to the south through the Chef Menteur and Rigolets passes which bracket this property, this area is prime for speckled trout, redfish, and flounder. Plenty of marsh drains and lakes provide prime fishing spots on/along the property, with great spring and fall fishing in the open waters of adjoining Lake St. Catherine and Pontchartrain. The Biloxi Marsh is a short boat ride away.
Duck hunting in this part of Louisiana is known primarily for teal, widgeon, gadwall, pintails, and divers. Helping hold birds in the area is the neighboring +25,000 acre Bayou Sauvage NWR, which wraps a large part of the property.
