Garden District Condos-1627 Conery St.-Historic Condo Renovation! What do you get for $192,500?

    This exciting condo at 1627 Conery Street in the New Orleans Garden District is a new listing of mine.  This is a great example in how we in New Orleans love to keep these old buildings and reuse them.  The developer really has gone  the extra mile to leave the old fireplaces with the exposed brick, wood plank floors while at the same time giving people what they want.  This is what we like about Historic Renovations. 

     The unit was renovated down to the studs meaning new electrical, new a/c-heater, new water pipes and much more.  At the same time people want new kitchens, new baths, crown molding and lots of windows.  I would guess this building was about 80 years old.

     This Garden District condo has two bedroom and one bath and is in a great location.  You are within half a block of St. Charles Ave. and public transportation via the New Orleans Street car line.  There is no parking but street parking in front of the unit does not seem to be an issue.  Most people living here would love to park and walk.

   The Condo features include 12 foot ceilings, crown molding, recessed lighting, renovated windows that work, under counter lighting, ceiling fans, custom cabinets, travertine tiles, upscale granite counter tops, new stainless steel appliances, and windows that still work.  Whenever you have windows with natural light and high ceilings the unit lives much larger than the 753 sq. ft. of living.  The condo fees are reasonable at $187 per month.  This cover insurance, flood insurance, water and up keep. The building has never flooded.

Three of the four units have been sold.  This is the developers own unit and has a couple of extra touches.  The master bedroom is very large. The blinds and appliances will stay.  You have more than the normal amount of recessed light and the light fixtures are not your off the shelf Home Depot items.  The under the counter lighting, the travertine hallway, and crown molding are all extra touches.  The nice thing about a total renovation is that there should be fewer things to break since most are new.

The bathroom is an executive bath all the way with the exposed brick fire place left in tack.  The travertine shower stall and custom vanity with the tall ceilings add to the overall feel.  Get the executive feel in a condo.  Once again this is a great location for someone working downtown, working at the LSU and Tulane Medical schools, attending Loyola and Tulane, a short ride to Audubon Park and even for people working on the Westbank of New Orleans.  You are a short trip to the New Orleans French Quarter and the New Orleans Warehouse District.

    Eric, beautiful rennovation on this unit. I’m curious as to how the condo market has weathered the recent challenges in the housing industry in New Orleans. It this price lower that you would have been able to obtain for a comparable property about a year ago?

    The New Orleans market has actually been pretty steady since 2005. We did not have this bubble but Hurricane Katrina wiped out more than 50,000 homes. Insurance rates are high making condos very competitive as they pull from another insurance source.

    Many new arrivals are moving here and condos are a great choice. The historic buildings have done well. They were old and they did not flood. We do not follow the same drummer as the rest of the country.
