New Orleans Mansion on Corner in Uptown

 

New Orleans is an old town for the United States. Most of these Historic Homes were built before cars and did not have large yards.  You begin to find these larger yards and homes to match in Uptown New Orleans Homes that have a lot of character. Shutters and porches give them a New Orleans unlike any other city. Check out how green things are without much watering.  It rains enough for 11 months out of the year…

Home among the trees in New Orleans

     Love these plantation looking homes with these large porches, high ceilings, large windows raised off the ground.  Most of this was done for ventilation in our hot and humid Summers  in New Orleans.  The homes had to adapt to the weather.  The trees and scrubs do make them look cooler than surrounding areas with no tropical gardens and trees.

New Orleans Mansions, Shade City

Uptown New Orleans Home with designer windows

 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…

Uptown New Orleans Homes, Madri Gras Beads on Fence

      Great way to decorate for Mardi Gras in New Orleans.  The throws which are the beads are becoming used for more and more decorations.  Great way to show of your spirit and the unusual way to express yourself.  The Uptown New Orleans home is unique and picturesque in itself.  The beads are what caught my eye.  Everyone enjoys them and they stay untouched for others to enjoy.

New Orleans Real Estate and Uptown homes

       This is an interesting home in Uptown New Orleans so I took the photo and did a little research.  Most of the homes with this Victorian style in Uptown New Orleans date from 1870 to 1905.  Atttention to detail was a trade mark for New Orleans in this time period.  The wealthy wanted to show off their homes  as this was a way to say I have made it.
