Full of color and history
The Garden District in New Orleans is among the most impressive neighborhoods in the United States in terms of historic homes and gardens of all styles. New Orleans was one of the wealthiest cities in the 1850’s when many homes in this neighborhood began.
Many of the condos you will see on St. Charles Avenue were conversions of apartments built during the 1970’s that were later turned into condos.
There are a few homes that were turned into condos that will really give you that historic feel of New Orleans. These conversions are not the norm on St. Charles Ave. One of the neatest conversions are the 1920 to 1930 small apartment complexes that have been converted into condos.
The Magazine Street Condos are on the edge of the Garden District and almost all of the are conversions from apartments and old homes. They all have that historic appeal and many historic features like high ceilings, wood floors, old fireplaces, large windows, and historic woodwork.
As you get closer to Audubon Park you find fewer condos along St. Charles Ave. You find them in neighborhoods around Audubon Park and the Universities. The University area is home to Tulane University and Loyola University. Both Universities have Law Schools and many graduate programs. The LSU and Tulane Medical Schools are about 70 blocks away. Many Medical Students buy in this area and areas between the Medical schools
