Shell Beach Drive in Lake Charles, LA

Lake Charles, Louisiana has it’s share of Fine Homes & Estates.  I usually preview the subdivisions South of town, but don’t want to forget one of the most memorable landmarks of our City which is Shell Beach Drive.

Shell Beach drive is one of the streets that make up the boundaries for Margaret Place Historical District.

Located on the Southeast side of the Lake, Shell Beach Drive runs from Clarence Street all the way to the Port of Lake Charles.shell beach map

There are many styles of homes along Shell Beach from Georgian Manors, Louisiana Acadian,  Floridian Stucco to English Tudor.  Each  fine estate home is unique in more ways than one and most are historic landmarks dating to the early 19th Century, although there are some newly constructed homes.
