New Orleans Real Estate News: Tall Timbers Subdivision New Orleans LA

Tall Timbers Subdivision New Orleans LA

Tall Timbers entrance

The spotlight this week is on the Tall Timbers subdivision in Algiers.  Bounded by General de Gaulle, Woodland Drive and the Intracoastal Waterway, the Tall Timbers neighborhood has much to offer home owners.  Located only 3 miles from the Crescent City Connection, 6 miles from downtown New Orleans and less than one mile from Our Lady of Holy Cross College, living in Tall Timbers comes with multiple benefits.

  • An active Garden Club
  • An active Homeowners Association, with affordable dues of only $80 every 6 months ($160 per year)
  • Home of the Dwight D. Eisenhower Elementary School, located near the center of the subdivision

The Collins Park Bird Sanctuary is located near the middle of Tall Timbers subdivision, next door to Eisenhower school.  A peaceful respite sponsored by the Tall Timbers Garden Club.


Small pocket areas of specialty housing are sprinkled throughout the subdivision limits.

Tall Timbers Estates is made up of 5 streets (Inwood, Pin Oak, Post Oak, White Oak and North Teak) and features larger, custom built homes, while Woodstone consists of one circular street within the community with the largest of the custom homes in the subdivision.

Within Tall Timbers, there is also a collection of 14 homes that all back up to a shared pool and outdoor entertaining area.  With an additional homeowner fee of $720 annually for pool maintenance, landscaping and playground equipment upkeep, this is almost a "secret" subdivision, since the private pool and play facilities are not viewable from any of the surrounding streets.

Lisa, This is not only a wonderful post for Localism, these homes sound just beautiful.  I can imagine sitting in the bird sanctuary and love the idea of the private pool area.

Thank you, Carole.  I actually attended the elementary school in this subdivision waaaaay back in the 4th grade.  It was very nice to have the trees surrounding the back side of the school playground.

I lived in the wood stone block when I was a kid and I have just recently bought my first home here. The subdivision is even more beautiful now than I remember it to be. The homes just seam to fit in so well with there surroundings. There is no other place like it in New Orleans. When my friends come down to visit they all say it looks like some thing you would see in the movies. Its a must see!
