What is a Neighborhood Condo ?
One of my favorite styles of New Orleans Condos is what I call the neighborhood condo. This is a small condo complex that was once a multifamily rental turned into several condos. What makes these so special is that they can be found in Upscale neighborhoods in Uptown New Orleans. You can often find homes worth over a million dollars or more down the street from you neighborhood condo.
These are usually within walking distance of Magazine Street and St. Charles Ave. I love to walk the neighborhoods and show you the variety of homes you can find within a few blocks of my latest listing of mine on Leontine Street. You can walk to shops, restaurants, bars, and the streetcar lines. Just a lot of great things to do.
Usually the neighborhood condos have a lot of historic character. Lots of windows, wood floors, high ceilings, lots of natural light, fireplaces, old doors and just a lot of features that homes had in them 100 years ago. Parking is usually not an issue in the neighborhood as you would find in the French Quarter or Warehouse District.
If you enjoy walking then you would really like to walk the neighborhood as I had last week. I will share with you the variety of homes within several blocks of 1027 Leontine which is between Prytania and Magazine Street. I will share the neighborhood with you and talk about the condo in the next blog. Just some shots of the homes, gardens and the variety of homes in the neighborhood.
For all these reason I think this type of condo will continue to be popular in New Orleans and the various neighborhoods where they can be found…

The Neighborhood Condo’s Neighborhood
Always some interesting sights besides the beautiful homes and yards. A few skeletons getting ready for Halloween. An historic car like this Model A Ford parked in the neighborhood. Where else would you find so many cool things to see and photograph. All within 15 minute walk of the neighborhood condo…..
