Neighborhoods in South Shreveport

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty NWLA

There are many neighborhoods in the South Shreveport area that are far enough away from the middle of the city for the quiet feel of the suburbs, yet convenient enough to take a short drive to the nearest dinning, shopping and entertainment attractions.  Some of these neighborhoods include Ellerbe Road Estates, Twelve Oaks, Hidden Trace, and Long Lake Estates to name a few.




Ellerbe Road Estates is located south of Shreveport and east of I-49.  Most of these beautiful, well-built homes in this neighborhood were constructed between the late 1970’s and 1980’s.  This private, quiet, clean community is just in reach of Bert Kouns Industrial Loop. 



Twelve Oaks is a community located on 400 acres in Southeast Shreveport near Inner Loop 3132 with convenient access to I-49.  Twelve Oaks has an extensive list of custom home builders with several years of experience, as well as a Homeowners Association with a permanent office located within the gatehouse.  This neighborhood also offers a multi-use clubhouse within the community open for residents’ use.  During the long, Louisiana summer months, the pool and snack bar is open for residents and their families. 



Hidden Trace is a gated community located in South Ellerbe just a few miles south of Overton Brooks on Norris Ferry Road.  This neighborhood offers a large array of updated, contemporary homes, yet comfortable in size for the average family.  Located a little over 10 miles from the middle of Shreveport, Youree Drive is still just a short distance away.  This neighborhood will definitely suit your needs if you desire to be further from the city, yet close enough for convenience purposes.



Long Lake Estates is an upscale, gated community located near Ellerbe Road and Overton Brooks.  Offering 24-hour security, this neighborhood will definitely offer your family a safe and secure environment.  This neighborhood offers luxury homes with spacious floor plans.  With the peaceful feel of lakes and bayous within the gates, this neighborhood is one of the most beautiful in the Shreveport area.


The Caddo parish schools that are within all of these neighborhoods’ school districts are University Elementary School, Youree Drive Middle School, and Captain Shreve High School.  There are also several other magnet and private school options within convenient driving distance as well.
