Uptown Real Estate & Info

Uptown

Uptown New Orleans has grown into one of the most coveted areas in which to live since its conversion in the 19th century from large plantations to the close residential neighborhood that we recognize today.  Having been added to the National Register of Historic Places in an effort to preserve the incredible architecture that can be found here, Uptown is now an architectural destination!  St. Charles Avenue is a prime location to view historic mansions with styles that range from Victorian and Greek Revival to rare Antebellum Architecture that was almost lost in the Civil war.

Uptown is not only an area to admire architecture of the past, it also offers great shopping and dining along the famous Magazine Street.  This one-of-a-kind atmosphere and world class shopping makes it easy to see why so many buyers seek the irreplaceable homes for sale in Uptown.  What makes Magazine Street a shopping experience like no other is the small neighborhood feel with independently owned shops alongside major upscale chains.  It makes this major thoroughfare a one stop shop for gourmet food, local art, housewares and apparel exclusive to Uptown.

St. Charles Avenue

St. Charles Avenue is about 10 blocks from the Mississippi River between Prytania and Carondelet Streets.  The sights along this iconic avenue can be enjoyed on foot or on a leisurely streetcar ride.

You can catch the St. Charles Ave. Streetcar Line at the intersection with South Carrollton Avenue in the Riverbend neighborhood and travel the length of St. Charles Avenue until it reaches Canal Street in the French Quarter.  The streetcar is an inexpensive activity that allows for easy travel through some of the most popular tourist locations in the city.  The old wooden bench seating and electric cable line running overhead remind passengers of this historic line’s origins and its status as the oldest continuously operating street railway system in the world.  Many buyers take into account proximity to the streetcar line when considering homes for sale Uptown as it is an easy option for travel to and from parades during Mardi Gras and adds considerable value to the homes that surround it.
Magazine Street

No visit to New Orleans is complete without venturing to Magazine Street.  The street is a good mix of commercial and residential real estate.  Many blocks front restaurants and shops and are interspersed with blocks of historic, residential housing.  It boasts an impressive variety of shopping choices with everything from antiques, furniture, apparel, housewares, books, jewelry, children’s clothing and toys, pottery, flowers, and even shops that cater to pets!  Many stores are to be found in traditional shotgun and older homes whose facades have been preserved to retain the charm of the neighborhood and provide a shopping and dining experience unlike anything else.  The restaurants and shops featured along Magazine Street are far too numerous to list but it’s safe to say that regardless of what particular item you may be searching for, it can be found on Magazine Street!  Many buyers considering homes for sale in Uptown like to view shotguns just off Magazine Street as so many attractions are within walking distance.  Parking overflow does not become an issue as many Uptown homes require on-street parking.
