The Diversion Canal is a man-made canal created to relieve the flooding of the Amite River and was dug to be 25 feet deep. Homes along the Diversion Canal have some of the most stunning views. It is rare to find such value in such a unique and beautiful setting, as the subdivisions offer along the Diversion Canal.
Bayou Terrace subdivision is an older subdivision, built in 1990, and the homes have stunning waterfront views. Some also allow for a RV/Boat Storage or a designated parking area across the street from your home. This community is located near the start of the Diversion Canal (near the Amite River split) and it is bordered not only by the Diversion Canal, but also by a beautiful Louisiana wetland. A selection of beautiful Bayou Terrace real estate offers homeowners private access to the canal from docks and boathouses.
Bayou Terrace Drive runs from its head at the Amite River to the highway 22 bridge that crosses the canal. The area that lines both banks of the canal, including the homes for sale in Bayou Terrace, is almost entirely residential. There is one shopping center on the canal, on the east bank just across the bridge in The WaterFront development. For those in need of any amenities beyond that, Gonzales with its big box stores and outlet mall is just minutes away. Please contact us if you have any questions at all about the homes for sale in Bayou Terrace Estates, or the other communities on the Diversion Canal. We are eager to put our experience to work for you!
Diversion Isles is another older community on the Diversion Canal. It is located just across the canal from Bayou Terrace. Diversion Isle offers a level of affordability on the water, with stunning views. The northern sections of the canal that contain Diversion Isles real estate are especially beautiful for the quiet, wide-open expanses of gentle waterway and serene wooded areas that surround them. Old Ferry Road opens onto the Diversion Canal road that lines the north bank of the canal; this is a dead-end road, so the only traffic you will experience is from the limited number of your like-minded neighbors. Furthermore, with merely a single row of houses on either side of the canal, backing onto the large tracts of Louisiana wetland, there is nothing to disrupt your true, undiluted communion with the natural environment. This community can be easily accessed from Old Ferry Road, off Louisiana Highway 16.
Luckily you won't be left entirely on your own. While the northern sections of the canal do offer a very affordable way to escape the ever-present hustle and bustle of modern life, you won't have to leave any modern conveniences behind. The homes for sale in Diversion Isles may make it feel like you're in your own little world but there are several convenient amenities nearby when you're ready to surface.
