Short walk to great restaurants and 6 blocks to Parade Route. 1 block to streetcar and near Universities. 5 minute walk to nearby neighborhood grocery store Zara's, the famous Upperline Restaurant, Crepe Nanou, Yogurtland, CVS, etc. This residence is only one block from St. Charles Ave. and the StreetCar line – which can easily take you to Uptown and Downtown New Orleans. You will absolutely love being in the middle of everything, we are less than 10 minutes to the French Quarter, Super Dome, Jazz Fest, Famous Tipitina’s and Magazine Street. One of the safest Neighborhoods in all of New Orleans!! Many places take great pictures but fail to show you neighboring houses. This home is in a beautiful and safe neighborhood - with kind neighbors. Neighborhood patrol.
** Security System - ADT. Most homes in the U.S. have it, why not ours :)
** If it rains and you want to stay in - Enjoy watching TV on a brand new 50' HDTV. Cable, (WiFi) included. There are numerous boutique shops, coffee shops, local stores, restaurants and bars within walking distance. Our place is perfect for family trips, reunions, girls trips, conference visits and most importantly - friends just hanging out.
The house is in a quiet residential neighborhood.
A lovely place to stay but neighbors will react to ensure the tranquility of the neighborhood if used as a party or event house.
