Uptown New Orleans Homes, Large tree
Home among the trees in New Orleans

Could not imagine living in New Orleans with the Summer Heat without the trees or lovely porches that we have. The variety of porches in this town are second to none.  Maybe that is why people here tend to be out going as they are out more…Air Conditioning has changed lifestyles but these porches are like the smile on a home…

Historic New Orleans Garden District Home with Wrought Iron Galleries

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

      This First Street Home in the New Orleans Garden District is always an eye catcher.  The front is great but the side galleries are something else.  This home was built in 1869 and is known as the Carroll-Brown House.  Mostly Italianate in style with extensive wrought iron which was attached at a later date.  We can call this a New Orleans ” grande maison”.


Garden District Homes, Focus on the Porches Today….

Friday, May 25th, 2012

        Historic Homes in the New Orleans Garden District have some of the best porches in the world.  From small simple porche to large elegant ones , they are all a showcase of how people lived before air conditioning and electricity.  The porch was a place to visit on,  a place to keep the sun and rain off, and above all a place to enjoy your neighborhood.  People used them daily and nightly.  Glad they are still all here.

     New Orleans loves to decorate for Christmas.  This is one colorful one from around Coliseum Square that just got decorated.  Its a newly redone condo at 1446 Camp Street.  Its new construction basically around the historic features of this pre-Civil War home in the New Orleans lower Garden District.   She had more to do but it looked great to me.

Barracks Street Favorite, French Quarter Homes

      I have always liked this house on Barracks in the New Orleans French Quarter.  The owner always has some great hanging baskets.  The colors just seem to fit into the theme.  It directly across the street from the dog park or Cabrini  Park.  You can always see more if walk the more residentail areas of the French Quarter.

Victorian Uptown Historic Home

     This house has always caught my attention when I walk the Garden District.  It has got to be the colors that attract my attention and the detailed paint job.  It must have cost $25,000 plus to paint a house in such detail. I found this in a history of historic homes and it was painted all white in 1992. Just sharing !!
