haven't posted much about Ellerbe Road Estates in southeast Shreveport. Perhaps that's because it's not gated, it's not new, and it's not prestigious. But it's a great neighborhood.
Ellerbe Road Estates was one of the first neighborhoods developed along Ellerbe Road. It's just south of the intersection with Flournoy Lucas Road. Because it's an older neighborhood and prices have come down a bit, we are seeing an influx of young families. You'll see the little neighborhood boys gathering for a game of front yard football or catch. And moms out pushing a stroller or pulling a wagon with a smiling toddler. It's that kind of neighborhood.
Of course, people come and go, but many families have been there for years and would rather stay put and improve than go somewhere else. It's a peaceful neighborhood where people aren't in your business, but they are there to lend a hand if you need it. They watch out for each other.
There has been a neighborhood association for several years Take a minute to check out their website. That's always helpful to people considering buying there.
Here is a good example of what homes are like in the older part of the neighborhood.
This is a welcoming 4 bedroom, 2 bath home with new paint in the newer neutral colors. The den has a cathedral ceiling, woodburning fireplace, and built-in bookcase. The master bath has a whirlpool tub and walk-in closets. It's just a great home in a great neighborhood. Offered at $193,000.
