New Orleans is a cultural icon of deep rooted culture and traditions…steeped in an architectural history that draws on places and people.
The luxury market in the New Orleans metropolitian area generally falls into these main neighbourhoods:
A) French Quarter to Fauburg Marigny: Historic gems in special neighbourhoods. Here you will find delicately restored mansions..some intact from years gone by, others updated from the inside out with all modern conveniences. These luxury residences may be single family homes generally starting in the mid $500,000 range on up. Condominiums start at $80,000 for a few hundred square feet weekend getaway up to several million for a large place with off street parking.
WHY you want to live here:
1) Like living in a movie set everyday..you just never know the movie.
(2) Courtyards and balconies make special spaces..to relax on your own or be with that special someone.
(3) There is only one French Quarter..and the Fauburg Marigny holds its own – property values that are standing the test of time.
(B) Uptown: Many styles, glorious homes, high ceilings and spacious surroundings – this epitomizes Uptown luxury living..a vocabulary of 150 years of southern tradition, with skills of tradesmen from the world over. From the sounds of the St Charles Street car to the many Church bells to the parades, Uptown New Orleans is a special place to call home. Whether walking to a favorite restaurant, to the park or cruising in a convertible..the rustle of the ever present giant Live Oak trees frames the feeling and sights that make this a special place.
(C) Bayou St John / Esplanade Ridge: In this area we have prime examples of some of the oldest original housing stock of buildings dating back 100′s of years ago with origins in the West Indies and beyond. A wonderful place to live and play..minutes from Jazz Fest, a great Museum and the 8th largest city park in the United States.
(D) Lakeview: A wonderful place to raise a family..the lots are large, and often have access both in the front and rear. Although few homes actually face the Lake for the view, those who live here love the small town feel of being out close to the Lakefront while being minutes from Downtown.
(E) CBD or Central Business District: Sometimes one wants to have the best of all worlds..the sophisticated loft or condo living yet walking distance to some of the worlds greatest chefs who perform their nightly rituals. Home to a vibrant, growing community of young professionals this area is minutes from football games, parades and concerts held throughout the year.
(F) Old Metarie / Lakefront / Jefferson Parish and Environs: For those who want out of downtown, don’t care to be a breath away from all the action, Old Metarie awaits. Between Old Metarie, areas along the Lakefront and several subdivisions in Kenner one can have the country club feel yet choose from places designed after Uptown classic homes.
(G) Northshore/Mandeville/Covington: So you love horses, the feeling of living in the Panhandle of Florida and wide open spaces? Welcome to the Northshore..where country club living meets Southern Louisiana charm.
Hope you bring your sailboat, because here one is minutes from fabulous sailing and fishing both on lakes and bayous.
