Touted as “New Orleans’ most historic neighbor,” St. Bernard is only minutes away from the famed French Quarter and offers residents a potpourri of cultural, gaming, and wild life experiences. Bountiful waterways such as Lake Borgne, the Mississippi River and Breton Sound make this a paradise for fishing, hunting or bird-watching. Step back in time to where the War of 1812 ended at the Chalmette Battlefield. St. Bernard Real Estate is eclectic and ranges from ranch style brick homes to historic restored residences.
This family-oriented community (with a population of nearly 40,000 residents) offers an array of activities, including a vibrant recreational sports program located at the recently restored Val Reiss Park. The newly constructed St. Bernard Parish Hospital, refurbished 3000-seat Fredrick Sigur Civic Center, and state-of-the art public schools are only some of the reasons residents are drawn to St. Bernard.
Homes for sale in St. Bernard vary in style and pricing, and each community is unique.
