Vancleave Real Estate

Vancleave real estate is located in west-central Jackson County, Mississippi and as of 2007, had a population of 4,877. This is a small community that was known as Bluff Creek until 1870 when it was renamed by the postmaster. Named for Robert A. Van Cleave, the town was developed on Bluff Creek, which flows into the Pascagoula River. Many areas where Vancleave homes for sale are located today were once settled by Americans from Georgia and the Carolinas even before Mississippi became a state.

The city experienced a great deal of growth in the 1990s. Contributing to this growth was the outstanding economy of the Mississippi coast. A number of people were relocating to the area to escape the pollution, gangs, and high taxes of other areas as well as the ability to obtain land for less. In addition, the Pascagoula/Moss Point area was booming with the ship building and petro-chemical industry and nearby Harrison County was experiencing growth with the casinos. The result was growth in the Vancleave area and this growth continues today.

Vancleave homes for sale include a variety of single-family homes, townhouses, condos and homes with acreage. This is an area enjoyed by equestrians. The former Vancleave Horse Arena was renamed the Conrad Mallete Multi-Purpose Horse Arena in 2007. Many choose Vancleave for its proximity to other coastal cities as well as the serene setting of this small town. Commuting to work and living within an area that provides many amenities is part of the attraction of Vancleave.

The Vancleave Family Park on Ballpark Road provides recreation for area residents. In addition, there are many opportunities to enjoy in the area including fishing, boating, swimming and area trails for horseback riding. The subtropical weather permits outdoor leisure activities year round. The Preserve Golf club is located here and is an 18-home course that provides a fun experience for beginning as well as experienced golfers. A number of campgrounds, water parks and of course, beaches are perfect for families to spend time together.
