Overview / Comments

Historic Shell Beach Drive is well known throughout Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana! The beautiful and prestigious drive along the Lake is frequently included on noteworthy itineraries.

This property offers an estate-like setting for a single residence, yet it is large enough to accommodate multiple lots.While an application would have to be made to re-subdivide, there are several possible ways to divide the property.

One option is to divide into two, three, or four lots. Assuming an extension of the lane off of Shell Beach Drive:

2 lots would measure 177 x 236 each
3 lots -118 x 236 each
4 lots - 88 x 236 each

A drawing of an 8-lot subdivision of smaller lots is available for prospective developers to consider. Simply call listing Broker Mary Kay Hopkins at 337-439-1079.

The lot contiguous to the 50' ROW (East side) is also for sale via a separate listing and offers riparian rights. An additional, separate listing on the West and North side contains 10 acres m/l.

Developers are urged to consider the possibilities of a combined purchase of this parcel with one or both of the adjoining properties to achieve a somewhat larger, prestige subdivision.
