Uptown-Carrollton apartment description

The moment you enter this lovely unit, the calm will wash over you. Decorated with a collection of eclectic Buddha and Indian art, this 1 bedroom unit will be your peaceful retreat from the fun and bustle of the Big Easy. There is great natural light!

The bedroom has a brand new King Bed with super fine high thread count sheets. An antique Indian furniture collection complements modern amenities including full kitchen with gas stove, microwave and toaster over.

The living room is comfortable enough for relaxing or eating with a couple of friends. There is cable TV and WiFi.

The neighborhood is nice and quiet. You are a short walk to coffee shops and Magazine St retail boutiques. Whole Foods is a few minutes away.

Public transit is 1 block away.

This apartment is unique in its decor. You will feel at home with beautiful art beside modern conveniences. The location can't be beat.

Your host is also a great source of suggestions on things to do and places to see not to be missed in the culturally rich city of NOLA!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2008

          About the owner: Gary is a Native New Orleanian who has lived in San Francisco and travelled the world, only to return home to NOLA! Having returned to marry the girl next door just a few months before Katrina, he has played his part in rebuilding this wonderful city through various real estate projects and other entrepreneurial ventures. And now he's never leaving!

          Why the Owner Chose Uptown-Carrollton:
          This building was falling down after 'The Storm,' as we call it. When the chance came up to buy it from an out of town investor who was unable to recover from storm damages, we jumped at it. The moment the neighbors saw that we were fining the place up and getting good people living there, they were really happy to see the neighborhood improving, one property at a time. We are proud owners and Proud New Orleanians!

          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
          We decided to make your visit as comfy and soothing with the help of some of our vast collection of Indian and Asian art. Amassed from various world travels, the art is collectively known as Meditation Art. We sell much of the art and decorative items through If you stay here and love something that is on the walls or shelves and want to take it home with you, we offer a Friends & Family special discount.
