What we think of as “Oak Hills” is actually a collection of several subdivisions: Oak Hills Park, Oak Hills Place, and Oak Hills III. Some of the homes in the area, especially the ones built around the lake, were built as many as 50 years ago. Over the years more homes were built and the area was gradually developed. The neighborhood is popular because of its location. It’s between LSU and Country Club of Louisiana, on the high side of Highland, with access from Highland and Perkins Road. The homes in Oak Hills are typically on large lots, with mature landscaping, sidewalks and street lights. Architectural styles vary but include traditional ranch style homes, two story homes, and the newer Acadian influenced designs.
One of the reasons people like living in Oaks Hills is because it’s just so convenient. You can easily get to places you want to go. There are two entrances to I-10 nearby: Siegen Lane and Bluebonnet. There are two ways in to LSU and downtown: Perkins and Highland. One of the area’s largest and newest YMCA’s is minutes away with outdoor sports and recreation, indoor fitness centers, and great community programming. There is also an Our Lady of The Lake After Hours Kids Clinic nearby. The Hilltop Arboretum, a 14 acre garden, is right by the entrance to Oak Hills on Highland Rd. Perkins Rowe, a great location for shopping, dining, and entertainment, is down the street from the Perkins Road entrance.
With nice homes, a convenient and accessible location, and affordable homes, no wonder people like living in Oak Hills. This is a great neighborhood and one that I often recommend to clients.
