St. Tammany Parish Waterfront Homes
Many of St. Tammany Parish homes have direct access to waterways. The Parish sits on the North Shore of Lake Pontchartrain and has the Tchefuncte River and Bogue Falaya River as interior waterways. This accessibility to water is perhaps one of the biggest advantages of buying real estate in St. Tammany Parish. Whether you are looking for homes for sale in Mandeville, Covington, or Madisonville, each town has beautiful waterfront properties along lakes, rivers, ponds, and bayous. With these waterfront properties, Northshore homeowners have the ability to enjoy activities like fishing, boating, swimming, Jet Skiing, and more. These homes range in size and style to fit the needs and desires of homeowners.
In Mandeville, there are plenty of houses along Lakeshore Dr. in Old Mandeville. While these houses are on the opposite side of the street from the water, there is no obstruction to the view and residents can gain access for boating in Lake Pontchartrain via a boat launch at the east end of the Lakefront. Homeowners may also keep their boats in the marina belonging to the Pontchartrain Yacht Club or other marinas around Mandeville. Other waterfront properties in the area include Lewisburg, which has direct access to Lake Pontchartrain, and Beau Chene Country Club, which backs up to the Tchefuncte River. Beau Chene, like many other neighborhoods on the Northshore, has its own marina connected to the river.
The heart of Madisonville lies upon the Tchefuncte River, but there are also properties fronting the lake. Houses outside of subdivisions along the river can be found on Bordeaux Street and Mabel Drive on the west bank and Riverwalk Drive on the east bank of the river. The subdivision of Deloaks has many residential homes along the Tchefuncte River and a canal leading to the river. Homes along Lake Pontchartrain include the neighborhood of Guste Island, which is a short drive from the heart of Madisonville along Hwy 22.
The city of Covington has plenty of beautiful waterfront homes along the Tchefuncte River. These houses are found along Three Rivers Road off of Hwy 190 and in subdivisions like Covington Country Club, Tchefuncta Club Estates, Brady Island, Riverwood, Flower Estates, Old Landing, and more. Lake Ramsey is one of the Northshore’s hidden gems located in Covington and provides homeowners with the same waterfront amenities, but no exit to the Tchefuncte River or Lake Pontchartrain. Lake Ramsey, however, is perfect for those seeking the thrill of watersports and boating.
