About The Island
Located in historic Plaquemine, just 11 miles south of Baton Rouge, The Island, a sprawling 400-acre country club, residential and golfing community, is neatly tucked between Bayou Plaquemine and Bayou Jacob. Picturesque and secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet a much shorter drive than the overcrowded commute from the new developments in Ascension and Livingston Parish. The Island was designed to preserve the rich natural setting so that homeowners could enjoy all that this community has to offer.
Unlike many communities, no one has to worry about adjacent neighborhood building because the surrounding 5,000 acres are owned by The Island's developers A. Wilbert's Sons. Homeowners can be assured that their property values will be protected. The Island maintains quality standards, and has partnered with qualified and proven builders with excellent reputations. There is a saying that "you can't keep a good thing a secret for long." This certainly has been the case with The Island!
