Ray Matherne had a vision of developing a private residential community utilizing south Louisiana's natural resources.

The Bayou Gauche real estate developer already had developed eight subdivisions in St. Charles Parish during his 30 years in the business.

Matherne, 56, has created Cypress Point, a 1,700 acre sportman's playground along U.S. 90 near the famed Spahr's Seafood Restaurant in Des Allemands.  About 75 Acres of the property will be developed into a gated residential community with 32 homesites.

"It is catered to individuals who enjoy the outdoors." Matherne said.
