New Orleans Condos-1750 St. Charles Ave. Condos-Lots of room and security!

    Having just listed this St. Charles Ave  spacious 2 bedroom-2 bath top floor unit that has a lot of recent updates.  It  is time to review this condo association and see what is for sale in the building.  You can view the details below to see the photos and details of this recent listing.  You can also vist my condo site www.neworleanscondos.net to see more photos under featured properties halfway down the page.  

    This 6th floor unit sold for an extra 10k when sold by the developer in 2005.  The extra was for it being a top floor unit with better views and less neighbors.  The units however seemed to be the most updated units at the time.  This unit was bought in “as is” condition when the seller bought the unit in August of 2005.  Before putting the unit up for sale the carpets and wall paper were deleted and replaced.  The new wood floors, new paint , granite counter tops, tile floors, crown molding are the correct moves needed to give #639 that updated look.

     The 1750 St. Charles Ave Condos were upscale apartments that catered to elderly people before being converted into condos in 2005.  The demographic make up of the complex is changing as many people enjoy the security of this well maintained condo association.  The location on St. Charles Ave. across the street from Houston’s and the streetcar line is hard to beat.  You are blocks from the Mississippi River Bridge and the “Best Bank” of New Orleans as some would say.  It is also the entrance to I-10 and points West.  You are about an hour and 30 minutes to LSU Tiger Stadium.

    The courtyard takes the entire block and is surrounded by the complex.  The garden and grounds are on top of the garage.  The earth is about 2 foot deep as one of the trees were uprooted during Hurricane Katrina allowing one to see the shallow roots.  It was like a fortress during the storm and had little damage.  An older lady left her bathtub running for two weeks while everyone was gone and damaged a couple of units.  She lived on the 3rd floor so that was a blessing that she did not live on the sixth.  Things happen and the units recovered.  Its concrete construction are made to withstand Hurricanes and such.

      The common areas are manicured and there is always something in bloom on the grounds and in the pond.  The gold fish pond is focal point for all the units to enjoy that have interior views from above.   There are plenty of gold fish and water lilies blooming whenever I visit.  There are numerous park benches and walk ways that cross the lush tropical courtyard with numerous exotic plants.  The gym pictured below is well equipted and gets a good work out on a daily basis.

     There are currently 19 units on the market out of the 220 units.  There are 5 one bedroom units and three 3-bedroom units along with 11 2-bedroom units.  There is one unit under contract at the present time.  The size of the units sets them apart from the rest of the Uptown units.  The one bedroom units are at least one thousand square feet and the smallest 2 bedrooms are 1400 plus sq. ft.
