Northshore Neighborhood Spotlight: Greenleaves

Mandeville, LA, 70448

Front entrance of Greenleaves

The northshore is filled with so many beautiful neighborhoods! All are unique, which is great because what appeals to one person in a neighborhood might not appeal to another. You don’t have to look far to find a neighborhood offering what you’re seeking on the Northshore! The options are plentiful.

Today we are going to spotlight Greenleaves subdivision in Mandeville. We will admit- we are somewhat biased when it comes to Greenleaves because I (Lauren) grew up in Greenleaves and my mom (Lynn) still lives in our family home of 30 years. Whenever I reflect on my childhood, it is filled with the happiest memories of growing up in Greenleaves. I spent many a summer day fishing in the pond right around the corner from my house and riding my bike along the bike/walking paths. I made so many wonderful friends in my neighborhood– many of those friendships still strong today.

When you enter Greenleaves, you immediately notice the abundance of mature trees and the park-like setting. Not surprisingly, each side of Greenleaves Boulevard is flanked by gorgeous greenery. In addition, Greenleaves is home to 3 picturesque ponds, one at the front entry and two a small way from the front entrance. These ponds are home to families of ducks and, quite often, geese. Greenleaves also offers 2.6 miles of walking paths! At any point in the day, you can find families taking walks together along the paths, as well as runners and joggers out for exercise.

So, what else makes Greenleaves unique? Greenleaves is home to 1041 residences and, unlike most subdivisions on the Northshore, Greenleaves encompasses a group of 16 separate and smaller subdivisions referred to as parcels. A Greenleaves parcel is like a neighborhood within a neighborhood. Each parcel has its own representative board, but is ultimately under the governance of the Greenleaves Master Association. The GMA sets the deed restrictions and covenants by which all residents of Greenleaves must abide.

Each of these parcels is different from the other, and home sizes and prices within each parcel are similar to each other. So, for instance, the parcel of Cornerstone offers some of the largest homes within Greenleaves, while the parcel of Manor offers lovely condominiums that are smaller than detatched, single-family dwellings. Greenleaves parcels include single family detached homes, townhomes, condominiums and apartments. This means that Greenleaves can be an option for many people with a wide array of housing needs! Look through the pictures below to see how beautiful Greenleaves really is.
