The Rotunda Condo For Sale

330 Julia Street, New Orleans, La. 70130

Unit #309, Very Special Condo

Check out the TV Ad on the Condo Below

     This condo that I listed is a winner since it has a lot of positive features for a New Orleans Warehouse District Condo. 

     The location is in the center of the Warehouse District which is an easy walk to all destinations in the area. The Convention Center, Outlet Mall, St. Charles Avenue and many places to eat and drink are within 3 blocks from the Rotunda Condo Assoication. Emeril’s is on the corner below this condo.

      The street views from both rooms give the unit views and lots of natural light. The eleven foot ceilings and large windows make the unit feel bigger. The open floor plan is also a big plus. There is no carpet as all the floors are tile and wood.

       The updated kitchen and bath are important updates in all condos. The bathroom is in the hallway so you do not have to enter the master bedroom to use the bathroom. The unit has lots of closets for storage.

    The size of the one bedroom unit being 829 sq. ft. makes it one of the larger one bedroom units in the area with lots of space in the living room. Having garage parking on the first floor is a big plus and is easily worth 35k-40k. Parking has become much more important and valuable since the conversion into condos.

French Quarter Monument on Decatur Street

Joan of Arc and Flags

     The Joan of Arc Statue was given to the City of New Orleans from the people of France in 1972. France erected the statue in 1972 as a gift to New Orleans, whose namesake, Orléans, was one of the towns Joan of Arc (1412-1431) defended from the English during the Hundred Years War (1337-1453). In the city’s defense, she was overwhelmingly successful, but her exploits did not stop there. In just over a year, this teenager led troops in 13 different battles and sieges, and captured more than 30 cities

Notre Dame Seminary 2

The Notre Dame Seminary was completed in 1923. The corner stone was laid May 7, 1922. The Notre Dame Seminary is Graduate School of Theology for the Catholic Church. The Campus is not often seen bu tourist but the wonderful buildings stand out and should be a showcase for New Orleans. It often looks like a European Palace. It is a one of a kind….

Notre Dame Seminay 1

From its establishment as a free-standing seminary in 1923 by the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Notre Dame Seminary has as its primary mission the preparation of men for the ministerial priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church. The seminary, through an integrated and balanced program of priestly formation, seeks to prepare competent pastors for the Church in the Spirit of Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd. Additionally, in order to foster a broader outreach in service to the needs of the local Church, the seminary offers educational and formational opportunities to other applicants.

It’s Carnival Time in New Orleans, The Magazine Street Parades

February 3, 2016

Fan Girl on Magazine

     This past Sunday I had some time and decided to walk over to Magazine Street to watch several parades. It’s a great place to watch parades. It is a family affair. Got tired and just sat on the front steps of a home. It was not crowded. Everyone was super nice.

    One thing I learned is that it pays to watch parades in different place so you can really get the neighborhood feel. In 3 blocks I saw 4-5 people that I knew. Guess we all wanted to watch the parades at the starting point on Jefferson Avenue. I will be there again…

     New Orleans home owners are decorating their homes in record numbers. It is a lot of fun to walk the neighborhoods in the day and see how many beautiful decorations there are. Having simple things can be just as pretty as a lot of lights.

New Orleans French Quarter, Govenor Nicholls Street, Let’s take a quick walk

November 30, 2015

Gov. Nicholls and Burgundy

French Quarter Homes

     Take a quick walk down Govenor Nicholls  in the French Quarter and you can see a rather quiet residential area with many historic homes.  Much unlike other areas of the Quarter. Lots of doubles and shotgun style homes as you walk from N. Rampart to Bourbon Street.

Frencis T. Nicholls

    The street was named after Francis T. Nicholls who was a Civil War Hero and General who became Govenor of Louisiana after reconstruction. He was the 28th Govenor and served tow terms, 1876-1880 and 1888-1892.  After being Govenor he was the chief justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court.

Laurel Street and Constantinople Street in New Orleans, Homes and Cottages…A Quick and Colorful Walk..

November 25, 2015


Uptown Home and Plants

          New Orleans has so many colorful neighborhoods and many more colorful homes and cottages.  These are homes around Laurel Street and Constantinople in Uptown New Orleans. Love the fences and porches on all these homes. Such a variety of colors and styles. There are few that look alike. The colors and plants really set them apart.  Always better to see more with a quick and quiet walk.

New Orleans Homes in Mid City Near Bayou St. John

November 14, 2015

Mid City Neighborhood and Homes

New Orleans Homes in Mid City 5

     One of my favorite neighborhoods in all of New Orleans is in Mid City near City Park and Bayou St. John.  It’s a great neighborhood to walk and view pretty home and yards. Most of the houses are from 1920’s to 1930’s in these neighborhoods.


     You get to see some unique yards and plants that you will not see in other areas of New Orleans. Residents love plants and flowers with color. The people always seem to change them up over time. The large oak trees add to the neighborhood giving them a country feel. Many of the homes have nice size yards as you can see in these photos.


    The Craftsman style of homes is very common in the area. Love the porches and columns. It is also a very colorful area with the deep red bricks and bright red tile roofs.
