Pontchartrain Place Condos located in the Buck town area of Jefferson Parish have been around for 24 years. Its got a great location across the road from Lake Pontchartrain and the levee. Its an easy walk to the New Orleans Marina. Its an ideal location for those that enjoy the outdoors. Using the levee for running and biking is a favorite past time.
There are 93 units in the complex with mostly one and two bedroom units. Many of the two bedroom units are loft style units
The parking is ample on the ground level with designated spots for each condo and plenty of guest parking. The garage is covered and the units have a storage shed in the garage. The amenities include in ground pool and club house with neatly landscaped grounds over the courtyard. The condo fees are moderate. The units have balconies and the views will vary with the units. The third floor units have a view of the lake in the distance.
There is an evevator from the garage to the units. The complex is structured where all the units do not have elevators past the first floor level but stairs.
The units have been around long enough to many updated units with new kitchens, baths and floors. You will also see a number of original units that will need updates. These however will be priced accordingly to sell. The incentive to update plus the cost has to be figured into the asking price.

Last year in 2008 , 5 units sold with 4 of them being two bedroom units. I will be glad to send you the stats on the current units or the past sales. Prices have been stable.
