Located at 2257 Bayou Road you can find this hidden gem, its a block off Esplanade Avenue.  The house was built in 1859-1860 for the cost of $18,000.  Built on the Esplanade Ridge it has survived for over 150 years.  The wrought Iron fence is unique and is a work of art.  It is now used as an event destination.

     Green is one of the most common colors that you can find on homes in New Orleans.  Green shutters are the norm.  Green columns are a little more rare.  This Mid City beauty caught my eye last week.  It was a lot  green with the gardens and plants that the owner really takes care of.  The side yards are great for the viewers as you can see all the owner’s great work and pride that they take in their yard.

Almost a forgotten neighborhood. Mid City near City Park!

Mid City Raised Basement. 

      Yes, you are still in New Orleans near City Park.  This often forgotten area has many, many historic homes that could never be replaced.  The raised basement with tile roof says 1920′s.  There are many large and small homes in the area.  The turnover is very low so you never see many for sale.
