….Crescent Title now calls this “home” on Maple Street in New Orleans. I know they have been there for about a year. It’s a great place to call home for one of the busiest and best title companies in New Orleans. It was a real estate office before becoming a title company and getting a total update in 2013.
….People in historic neighborhoods do recycle homes as good as anyone in the United States. I have no idea of what was here many years ago.
New Orleans likes to decorate for the Holidays. Halloween is becoming bigger each year and people love to decorate their homes. The first two homes are on St. Charles Ave. One reminds me so much of a haunted house. The other is New Orleans Porches and what you can do with them for the holidays.
The Blue Victorian is on General Pershing in Uptown New Orleans and just caught my eye or being well done. Spiders, Mummies and Skeletons hit the mark….
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….
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….
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……
I have a condo complex on this street and stopped by the other night to get some night photos of the building. This gave me a chance to walk the neighborhood and get some shots at night. You can still see a lot of details and it is still colorful. The beautiful porches, windows, shutters, stained windows and all the details still shine at night. The neighborhood is two to three blocks off St. Charles yet you feel like you are in the country.
This is a great example of a New Orleans Neighborhood Condo in Uptown New Orleans. They are totally renovated while preserving a lot of the old world charm of this 1920’s Apartment House. The neighborhood is great and is two blocks from St. Charles Ave. and right where you want to be for Mardi Gras. Just walk tow blocks over to watch most parades as they begin. Catch the streetcar to downtown or Audubon Park. Each about 40 blocks away.
Each is over 1500 sq. ft of living with each having a garage and large storage area in the basement. Take a look as it a great new project of 4 units. Hard to have a nicer kitchen or baths in a condos. Worth taking a look at so enjoy the slideshow and song….Eric
Magazine Street Means Business in New Orleans…Homes, Stores, and Businesses just keep getting reinvented…Tuesday, October 1st, 2013
You see a lot of unique stores, shops, and eating establishments that were all once something else. They just keep getting recycled into something else. That is part of the charm of most of Magazine Street as it moves from Residential into commercial as it makes it way from Canal Street to Audubon Park. Always interesting shops and Businesses as you can see. I am sure the colors do get changed over time. Its the New Orleans Way….
Large and small porches in New Orleans in the heat of the Summer are always a welcome site. These are some of my favorites from the last couple of weeks. The trees really help tame the heat and stifle the humidity of our Summers. That is why they grow so well…
This side hall cottage has been wonderfully restored with plenty of ths historical details. Then painted like a designer would paint a house to bring out all the details including windows, shutters, door, columns, porch and the Victorian looking lace work. It then looks like a story book home.
