The St. Elizabeth’s Condos in New Orleans are one of my favorite associations. They are Historic in nature but reallt well done when the conversion was done in 2004-2005. All of the units in the origional building have a great combination of old and new. The townhomes in the rear of the complex are all new.
The 1314 Napoleon Avenue is a central location between downtown and Audubon Park. An easy walk to the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar line. A short trip to all the shopping areas along Magazine Street. The grounds are manicured in front as you can see by the photos below.
The historic section of the building features wood floors, high ceilings, exposed brick walls, large windows with lots of natural light. In the rear you have a large pool area, excerise room and parking for each unit. All the units are different in some sort of way. The building is 4 stories in the origional building with a total of 28 units including the newer townhomes in the rear that line Jena Street.
The townhomes have patios and balconies. They features upscale finishing with lots of storage and large bedrooms.
The origional building was built in the 1850’s as a school. Soon afterwards it became an orphanage and was one for over a hundred years until the building was bought by author Anne Rice in order the preserve the grand old place.
Over the last tow years the units tend to sell quickly. There is only one unit currently for sale in the building for 539k and it is overlooking the trees and Napoleon Ave. There is a lot to see and that is why I include a lot of exterior photos, but it even better in person.
