A 10-acre waterfront residential development in Vermilion Parish will offer cottage-style campsites that are more like homes away from home, complete with all the amenities of city-life as well as direct access to Vermilion Bay.
Le Virage Marina, a-10 acre waterfront residential development in Vermilion Parish, will offer cottage-style campsites that are more like homes away from home, complete with all the amenities of city-life as well as direct access to Vermilion Bay.
Sylvia McLain, Realtor for the development, says in addition to municipal water, residents also will have Internet, cable, street lights and on-site access to fuel. They will also be about 10 minutes from the nearest grocery store in Abbeville.
"There's a private fueling station specific to the development, so people won't have to haul fuel in or go really far out to get gas," says McLain.
McLain says the development will be architecturally controlled by a homeowners association, meaning no mobile or moveable homes, and among its features is a boardwalk stretching the entire waterfront along with private boat slips and bulkheads for each lot.
"It's a quaint little subdivision, not overpriced and high-end, more like cottage-type homes," says McLain. "You can also get into a canoe and go across the river to Palmetto State Park. And it's only about seven miles from the campsite to Vermilion bay, which makes for a really nice boat ride.
Prices range between $60,000 and $100,000, and so far, McLain says three of Le Virage's 28 lots - 23 waterfront - have been sold, with construction of the development's first cottage expected to start this month.
"I expect we'll start seeing completion of the camps by the end of summer and early fall," she notes.
