The Elmwood Oaks Condos in Harahan 70123, 832 South Clearview offers some great values with low condo fees and lots of nice common areas.

Elmwood Oaks Condos in Harahan

 

    The Elmwood Oaks condos were built as condos almost 30 years ago. They are a short walk to all the retail and eating places on Clearview Parkway and retailers in Elmwood Shopping Center. The condos are an easy commute via Jefferson Highway or River Road. Jump on a Earhart Express for an easy commute downtown.

 

     The 101 units are mainly 2 bedroom units spread over 5 building and 3 floors. Each floor is gated with a security code. There are a few one bedrooms and a few three bedrooms. The first floor units have a private courtyard and the other units have a balcony.  Both have storage outside. Parking is very easy for 2 cars and guests.

 

      The amenities include a large courtyard and swimming pool . Tennis courts and plenty of common area that is always well maintained.  You have elevators to each floor and easy stairs at each end of the building.

 

    The condos are well maintained and managed. The association is well-financed. The condo fees are very low ranging from $216-$233 for the two bedroom units.  The condo fees cover the exterior maintained, water,trash, common electricity, yard and pool upkeep. Just a lot of your money.

 

     If these condos were in Orleans Parish 5-6 miles away they would be 275k to 300k for a condo with this many amenities. The condo fess would be about twice as much. There are 3 condos currently for sale with prices ranging from $114,900 to $135,336. Any of these buys would be cheaper than paying rent at these low-interest rates. Prices have been steady or down for a couple of years.

 

     Elmwood Oaks is always in my top three for condo associations in Metairie, Harahan, River Ridge areas of East Jefferson.

The “Bakery Condos” in the New Orleans Warehouse District, Yes it was once a Bakery…

1111 S. Peters, Bakery Condos Front

The Bakery Condos located at 1111 S. Peters in the Warehouse District of New Orleans was once a Holsum  Bakery.  It was turned into apartments and then into condos about 10 years ago.  You can still see the ovens in many of the units.

The roughly 65 units are generally smaller size units than many other complexes in the Warehouse District.  One thing that sets it apart is that almost all the units have parking in a garage or secure lot behind the building.

The units were converted into condos about 10-12 years ago.  recently it has been upgraded with painting of the atrium area and much more.  Condo Complexes all need a cosmetic face lift about every 10 years.  The condo association has become very active with various upgrades and have become self managed recently.  It has made a big difference in the appearance of the common areas.  Looks so clean and refreshing….

     The four-story building has elevators near the front gate and stairs as well.  There is a small gym on the first floor and a patio and pool on the third floor in the rear of the complex. It’s a great area to meet your neighbors and grill.  Plenty of tables and chairs by the pool for this.

      You are a few blocks from the interstate and Mississippi River Bridge.  You are across the street on S. Peters from a park.  Th Convention Center is across the park.  It’s an easy walk to the French Quarter, The Super Dome, Fulton Street, and all things in the Warehouse District.

Gallery Row Condos, 448 Julia Street in the New Orleans Warehouse District, Plus a Studio Penthouse

        I just got a new listing in this complex and thought it was a good time to revisit the Gallery Row Condos on Julia Street and show you my new listing.  The 448 Julia Street Condos are steps from Magazine Street and in the center of the New Orleans Warehouse District.

     The Gallery Row Condos are at least 4 building that almost over the 400 Block on Julia Street.  The 2 front buildings that face Julia Street are the oldest of the building. Behind these two historic structures are two more building built at a later date when the building were apartments.  There is also a large garage on the first floor and a lot on Magazine Street for the residents.  Almost every unit has a parking spot.

    The 49 units in the condo association are different as it covers 4 buildings.  Some will have large windows, exposed brick and beams, high ceilings while others will not.  Most of the units are one bedrooms but there will be some 2 bedrooms.  The moderate condo fees have always been a plus.

448 Julia Street Condos, Gallery Row 400

     The Gallery Row Condos have had some nice upgrades lately with new tile and paint in the hallways from the entrance to all the hallways.  This has to happen about every ten years to give the complex an uplift and a nice clean look.  This is the way the complex increases in value and demand.  Few buyers want an old and funky look.  See the photo below with the new tile in hallways going to elevators.

     The 448 Julia Condos features a nice roof top viewing area with small pool.  A great place to get a 360 degree view of the city.  A place to grill and relax.  There are several courtyards between the buildings that are neat and well-kept.  There is a small gym on the first floor.  A secure entrance to complex and garage will give you that secure feeling.

A Studio Penthouse, $149,448

448 Julia Street #400 Penthouse, Gallery Row Condos

    Yes, it is small studio with a great location on top of the building.  Great views and steps from the pool and rooftop viewing deck.  You are all alone with no neighbors.  You have everything you want for a weekend place in the heart of the Warehouse District.  Easy to clean and take care of as it all in one room with a bath and small kitchen. The present owners come in on weekends and events and park in a pay for park  lot behind the condo complex.

    The area of Julia and Magazine is always fairly busy as the World War II Museum is down Magazine and the Childern’s Museum is in the next block on Julia. The Convention Center and new Outlet Mall is 4 blocks away and the French Quarter is 8 blocks away.  Right now this is the only unit for under 200k for sale in the Warehouse District of New Orleans.

     It is one of a kind since there are few units this small. I have never seen one as a studio on the top of the building like this one.  There are very few studio condos in the Warehouse District but this is one that has location, location and location going for it.  There are many small units in the French Quarter like this one but none will have city views like this one. They are slave quarter units in the back of a larger building.

The General Pershing Luxury Condos, 1735 General Pershing, New Orleans, La. 70115

      The General Pershing Luxury Condos in Uptown New Orleans are like new.  I like to call this type of condo a Neighborhood Condo that happens to be in a great neighborhood several blocks from St. Charles and the St. Charles Ave. Streetcar line.  It happens to be near a lot of destinations but is nestled in an upscale neighborhood of historic homes.

      The open design of he units are great for entertaining.  The apartment building dates from the 1920’s and every effort was made to preserve the fixtures and feel of the era while giving you an almost new condo.

      The condo association has four large units with each unit having at least 1500 sq. ft of living area plus a garage and a large storage area in the basement.  Secure entry to the  complex and a courtyard in the rear of the complex with another exit.  Each condo features lots of natural light, recessed lights, ceiling fans, high ceilings, crown molding, wood floors, new kitchens, new baths, freshly painted inside and out.  Its almost like new.  You will have to check oout the finish work and the hardware details.

     The open floor plan and the fact that the units are all on one floor makes them live even larger than the numbers indicate.  Each condo has two bedrooms and two large baths.  The laundry hook ups are in the hall bathroom.

1735 Gen Pershing Condos, Units

1735 General Pershing Condos, Front Door, Uptown New Orleans Condos

     The front entrace of the complex brings you in from General Pershing.  There is also a rear entrance with patio and gate to the storage areas for units.  The garages for each unit are on the side of the building. Each unit has a large storage area in the basement attached to the garage.  Who would pass up storage.  Its easy street parking for your friends and visitors.  You will have them because almost all the Mardi Gras Parades are within tow blocks from your door step.

1735 General Pershing D, Open Kitchen, Gas Cooking, New Orleans Condos

      The gourmet kitchen like thhis is rarely seen in the New Orleans condo market.  The marble counters and custom cabinets  along with the recessed lights make this kitchen a focal point of the large living area.  The gas stove, stainless applainces, work island, large pantry make this a chefs delight.
