Any opinions on an area called Bendel Gardens in Lafayette, La? I love the area and the school (Woodvale)

Asked by Lara, Lake Geneva, WI Sat Apr 26, 2008

but is the neighborhood kid friendly? Also anyone with any experience in this area - is it worth updating houses in the ?Woodvale school dist. I like the area but many of the houses in our price range need a good deal of updating? Any advice on value and neighborhood feel would be appreciated.

a little history-
The road is named for Henri Willis Bendel, a Lafayette native who became a leader in the fashion industry in New York and Paris in the 1920s and 1930s. After he bought 213 arpents on the Vermilion River in 1927 and landscaped it, the area became known as Bendel Gardens. The property was subdivided in 1950.

Lara, I'll send you more info on schools in that area/neighborhood stats...
