French Quarter Condos-837 Royal Street-The Lush Tropical Courtyard gets an A+.

     The Delacroux condos at 837 Royal Street in the heart of the New Orleans French Quarter is a 12 unit historic condo complex.  Its a 3 story brick building that surrounds a lush tropical interior courtyard that gives the units views of the pool and courtyard.  You are in the middle of French Quarter but once inside you could be anywhere in the tropical world.  The New Orleans weather is great for growing and the culture is one that enjoys courtyards and fountains.

     The La Croux Building dates to 1833 and was turned into condos in the 1990’s.  The condos managed to maintain the historic features along with the lush courtyard and fountains.  The condos have one and two bedroom units with balconies facing the courtyard.  There is an elevator to the upper floors. 

     The first floor front of the historic building is still commercial as most of the condo complexes in the New Orleans French Quarter.  Many of the units open onto the interior balconies with the great views.  Check out the shutters and French doors.  The units have high ceilings, wood floors, and lots of natural light.

     One of the great things about the condos in the French Quarter is you never know what the interior common areas look like.  Most of these units tend to be second homes and are very hard to duplicate in such an historic area.  Many of the second home buyers live near and far.  You can walk to Rouse’s Supermarket within the block and tip toe to Pat O’Briens.  No need to have a car while you are in New Orleans, turn off the cell phone too.

 

     There is currently one unit for sale in the complex.  Its priced at 479k and is a two bedroom and two bath unit.  One of the the trends that I have noticed is that the 2/2 have been very popular with second home people as it allows them to bring family and friends with them on visits.  Who would turn down such a trip.

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you know who was the original owner of the building in 1833…I love the architecture…Any photos of the interior of the 2/2?
