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.
