Laurel Street and Constantinople Street in New Orleans, Homes and Cottages…A Quick and Colorful Walk..Wednesday, November 25th, 2015
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.
On a recent afternoon after listing a condo on Leontine, I decided to take a quick walk around the neighborhood to get a better feel for the area. Always interested to see the variety of styles, colors, sizes, and gardens of homes in the area of town….
Tulane University is a treasure for New Orleans. Taking a walk recently through the campus you can get an appreciation for the beautiful campus that is does have. A perfect setting to be on St. Charles Ave. across from Audubon Park. The Campus occupies over 100 acres of prime real estate.
Founded in 1834 as the Medical College of Louisiana. A full fledged University by 1847. Become known as Tulane in 1884 when it became a private college through the generous donation of Paul Tulane.
Love this time of year to photograph historic cottages in New Orleans. It”s still not hot and all the plants and trees are fresh and bright green. Got to have these lovely trees as it does tend to get hot here. The porches are saying come sit on me and watch what is going on in the neighborhood. Check out all the colors and details. Such a variety of tropical color…..It was an easy walk to catch all of these and about 50 more….
Walking down Charles Avenue in New Orleans is always a great walk with plenty of details and a good time to exercise. Just check out the details on these three homes. The windows, the porches, the arches, the columns and the colors. Just so much detail for the camera….
Colorful New Orleans Doubles in Uptown shine on this Spring day…Notice all the doors are so colorful. Add in the shutters and historic doors and you have a wonderful combination. Double do come in all sizes and styles. Many have been coverted over the years inot single family homes but most residents leave the double look..
New Orleans Homes and Cottages all look to be smiling this past week. We need more sun and nice weather or I will run out of photos. Great exercise to walk the neighborhoods but when its below 40 degrees we will just have to wait. Stay in New Orleans 3-4 days and the weather will change at least 2 times…. Homes are decorated for Mardi Gras and that will be next….
Decorating for Mardi Gras is in full swing as football season is over for Saints Fans. We can cheer on our home town favorite in Peyton Manning. I will have more homes being decorated as I walk the neighborhoods to view New Orleans home…
It was a Sunny Sunday in New Orleans this past week. These are a few of the sahdy homes and yards that I walked by this Sunday. I did an open house in Uptown an then took a quick 50 block walk down St. Charles Ave. Actually 25 blocks down to Loyola and then 25 blocks back. Refreshing and a hunder photos later. These are some of my favorite homes with trees and an afternoon sun. You should try this several times a year. Next is the 100 block walk…
How cute are the three little cottages I am posting this week. There is so much that people do to these small homes to make them come alive. Its the details, the gates, the shutters, the doors, the porches, the fences, the plants, the hanging baskets, flags that just add to the beauty. So much detail that you can see in a photo….These were all in Uptown New Orleans neighborhoods……
