Ducournau on the Cane -- designed to provide a strong sense of community and family living; quality living where families can preserve a proud strong heritage and own a piece of the historic Cane River.  Careful details have been planned in the site layout and landscaping designs, including a walking path, a private park setting along the beautiful Cane River, and restoring an 1830’s Piece-Sur-Piece slave cabin.  French Quarter lighting will line the road.

 

ARCHITECTURE

Reflecting an era of home building rich with architectural detail and work of skilled artisans, quality construction, and details reminiscent of days gone by, home designs will be restricted to French Creole, French Country, and Plantation style.
