This section of Uptown is known for its cultural diversity and New Orleans centric flavor. Established as a “resort style” getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city, Carrollton still offers that same laid back vibe.
This beautiful, easy-going environment has a distinct air of nostalgia. Carrollton is a throwback to the slower Southern pace, and you may even feel as if you’re in a quiet college town with several highly-regarded universities nearby in Xavier, Tulane and Loyola.
From gorgeous parks to inspiring canopies of oak trees, there is plenty of natural beauty. That’s certainly true with your close proximity to the Mississippi River. This community sits next to the communities of Black Pearl and Audubon Park, which both offer access to this grand body of water. Want to enjoy a day among Louisiana oak trees and waterways? The Audubon Park bike trail, golf course and The Fly are all nearby. From there, just across the street are the wild sights and sounds of the Audubon Zoo.
Here you will find that Carrollton real estate is mostly restored homes overflowing with historical significance. There are many Antebellum mansions with pristine gardens as well single-family, doubles, and larger homes broken up into apartments.
Whether you take a joyride on the St. Charles streetcar line or stop into the Maple Leaf on Oak Street for some live local music, you’re never far from the amazing tastes, sights, and sounds of New Orleans
