                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: My wife and I have an active lifestyle and love to travel. I am a retired Coast Guard Officer. My career took me to many wonderful places, including New Orleans on four tours. I guess the government decided that I needed to retire here and I agreed. I met my wife in a local establishment and have made this my home since. I love music, temperate weather, and great food, which abounds in this great City. Come on down and let the Bon Temp Roulez!

                  Why the Owner Chose Uptown-Carrollton:
                  This is our home when work travel allows. An opportunity to play out of doors year round made this an ideal location to have a home. Cooking and enjoying great music and dining in our backyard made New Orleans a logical place to settle. Access to the culture of a big city within 12 minutes driving from home makes an irresistible travel destination as well. Start everyday with a walk along the Mississippi and through Audubon Park. And you will see why this is the ultimate travel vacation spot.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Lounge around our private pool, swim laps just float, or sun chapel/poolside, whatever tickles your fancy. Walk to any number of great restaurants, including Clancy's, Patois, Reginelli's Pizza, Frankie & Johnny's. Enjoy access to Tulane, Loyala or Newcomb Universities by foot. Go to the New Orleans Zoo, Audubon Golf Course, Audubon Bird Sanctuary, the stables, or the fitness course less than two blocks away. Never scramble for parking, just park on premise. Walk to Dos Jefes and listen to live music. Need more of a music fix, drive 5 minutes to the Maple Leaf or Titipina's , or venture 12 minutes all the way down to the famous French Quarter featuring Bourbon Street.
