I was showing the condos at Light House Harbor last week in Lakeview at 7300 Lakeshore Drive, New Orleans, 70124. I was amazed with all the changes and upgrades that have recently been made at the condos. The painting, resurfacing of the deck and much more make the place shine. All due to the result of a recent upgrade and assessment to the present owners. Upgrades do help with the future values. They have to be done from time to time for enjoyment of the residents and upkeep of the condos. New buyers do not pay assements….
The 41 units all have covered parking on the first floor which is secure. Several elevators to the two levels of condos. The odd numbers are on floor one and the even are on two. All the condos are townhouse style with steps. They all have views of the Marina and then Lakeview from the front. They have been around for 25 years so you are going to see some with plenty of updates and others with not so much. That will be the big difference in price for a comparable unit.
There are currently 4 units for sale ranging from 299k to 380k . All are at least 2 bedroom and two bath units. The size of all the units range from 1700-2600. All have private balconies, wood buring fireplaces, boat slips and access to the deck in the back of the condos. The living area and kitches are large areas that go from the front door to the rear while the bedrooms are up. The master will have a balcony with a view of the Marina and water.
The amenities include swimming pool, sauna, club room, full time manager, large deck with many great sunsets. Walk, jog or bike along the lake as there are plenty of open spaces. Walk to at least 8-10 nearby places to eat. Many have opened in the last two years. Condo fees are higher than other condos but you get more enjoyment for your money. Its worth a look for those who enjoy the outdoors and a desire to be close to town. Be prepared for many visitors if you buy here.
This is your backyard at 7300 Lakeshore Drive. Its all about lifestyle for those that live here. It’s the water and out doors but still be close to everything. You are in Lakeview for easy shopping but 15 minutes to downtown. Its another lifestyle that will becoming more popular as prices have moderated in this area over the past 5 years.
I was impressed with some of the units that I saw. Knowing the prices in the New Orleans area these are among the cheapest for what you get.
