Imagine a world all its own where you and your family live in a gated, meticulously planned community along the edge of Lake Pontchartrain. Enjoy the well-defined architectural palette of Classical, Mediterranean and Caribbean-style homes. Relish the parks and the walking and jogging trails amid mature tropical landscaping. This is the vision of Gabriel, a concept previously unknown in New Orleans area real estate.
Entering Gabriel through the main gate, you pass Palmetto Park, a front yard like no other. Home of two tropical lagoons, lush jungle growth, palm trees and flowering shrubs, this lavish entrance hints at the world within the walls.
Continue into Gabriel, and you discover an array of elegant homes, among the most prestigious in the entire Gulf South. Architectural and landscaping guidelines insure that the harmonious vision that is Gabriel will endure for all to experience.
In addition to some of the most graceful homes ever realized in New Orleans real estate, Gabriel holds other charms. Composed of a string of parks and walking paths, Emerald Necklace Park offers green spaces and tropical landscaping for the entire community to enjoy. From the central park, walking paths provide gated passages to the levee and lakefront.
Don't hesitate, come see us today.
Our location on the Lake Pontchartrain levee provides residents with ready access to lovely surroundings and a host of convenient recreational opportunities.
A jogging, walking and biking path stretches for miles around the lake and even connects to the Mississippi River levee.
Just a mile down Joe Yenni Boulevard from Gabriel, the Kenner boat lauch at Laketown offers boaters entry into Lake Pontchartrain, and from there to the Gulf of Mexico. If you want to fish from the bank, the Laketown fishing pier extends into the lake.
Laketown is also home to the Treasure Chest Casino, a riverboat gambling facility complete with restaurants and entertainment - a small taste of Las Vegas fun on the Kenner Lakefront.
The nearby Pontchartrain Center is the civic center of the city of Kenner. Parties, educational events, trade shows and other interesting functions are continually scheduled there. A recent addition to our neigborhood is the popular Coconut Beach Volleyball Complex.
Walk just a few blocks down Chateau Boulevard from our front gate, and you will find Chateau Golf and Country Club with its eighteen hole golf course, first rate tennis courts, swimming pools, fine dining and fitness center. Memberships are quite reasonable, and service is excellent.
Of course, no suburb of New Orleans is complete without great food. While most of the metro area's more famous restaurants are in the city, Kenner and nearby Metairie are home to a range of innovative dining establishments featuring Louisiana specialties along with many varieties of international cuisine. Mediocre restaurants do not last long in our neighborhood!
We invite you to consider the ambiance and peace of mind offered by Gabriel for your dream home. Since sales began in 2000, we have naturally been asked a lot of questions. Many of the answers can be found on our FAQs page, and for further information, please contact us any time. We look forward to meeting you!
