The Garden District offers some of the most coveted real estate in the city. It was named for the lush gardens that surrounded its earliest 19th century mansions; which were purposely plotted very far apart to allow for this expansive natural beauty. As the area became more and more populated the land was subdivided and more homes were added to each block. This provided even greater variation to the architectural styles that can be found in today’s Garden District. Homes for sale in the Garden District boast this impressive variety and jaw dropping grandeur that is very hard to find in such concentration elsewhere in the city.
The area has been named a National Historic Landmark and is greatly protected by the city. The streetcar runs down the middle of St. Charles Avenue, the northernmost boundary of the Garden District, so traveling to its many shops and eateries is simple and enjoyable. A ride down a St. Charles streetcar is an attraction all its own. Many photographers enjoy admiring each home from the old wooden seats of the streetcar, which stops often enough to quickly capture a photo of these amazing homes and landmarks. Many believe homes for sale in the Garden District are only for a lucky few. On the contrary, many buyers have made their dreams come true and purchased a little piece of history to call their own.
