Plantation Oaks

This quaint and charming, gated neighborhood is located at the corner of Chemin Metairie and La Neuville Roads and is one of South Lafayette’s finest boutique neighborhoods. The cornerstone of this neighborhood is the La Neuville Plantation home that is over 150 years old. Bryan McLain of McLain Companies restored the cornerstone plantation home in 1995 and developed the 10-acre tract of land adorned with over 50 beautiful live oaks. This signature McLain, boutique neighborhood is one of a kind with beautifully appointed homes.

Ella Trace in Youngsville, LA

Ella Trace offers the convenience of location as well as its own market. It is McLain’s vision of the old country store. It will have all the convenient items of today but with the comfort of yesterday. The market will not only be stocked with essentials, but also with added specialty and luxury items.

Heritage Trace in Lafayette, LA

Quaint and cozy with forty-eight home sites, a park, cypress picket fences and a small playground for young children. Development established in 2002.

oak knollOak Knoll in Youngsville, LA

Hybrid camellias, 100-year-old live oaks, cypress knees waist high and a nature trail around a two acre lake set the scene. The lake is accented with four lighted fountains, a softly lit boardwalk through the nature area, and several spots with park benches and fishing banks. The trees are too numerous to count and are laced with Louisiana iris. There are specimen trees like elm, birch and even a very rare golden oak tree. The location is simply breathtaking.

Oak Knoll is also the site for the first annual Acadiana Symphony Decorator Show House. There are nine very exclusive, quaint lots in this private, gated development, four of which are located on the lake and all with lake access. It is a neighborhood with very unique common areas and features.
