Everybody here is watching you, ‘cause you feel like home

 

Sitting on higher ground than other parts of New Orleans, in the early 1900s Gentilly Terrace was touted as a place to buy “homes on hills”. While people in other parts of the country may not agree these are “hills”, Gentilly Terrace homes sit about four to five feet above sea level.

Not your typical New Orleans homes, this neighborhood has architectural styles many would not associate with the city. California Craftsman, Spanish Revival, Mediterranean Revival, and English cottages are nestled atop this natural ridge.

If you love old oak trees, take a glance around Gentilly Terrace and your eyes will spy them everywhere. These New Orleans homes are setback from the street and typically have driveways too – not common in most other neighborhoods.

To seal the deal on your move to Gentilly Terrace, they have an extremely active neighborhood association. They host socials, yard sales, anti-crime walks, and holiday parties for their residents. You get all the suburban, homey feel with easy access to Lake Pontchartrain and UNO too!

 

Lagniappe: Michael Baccich, Edward E. Lafaye, and R. E. Edgar de Montluzin laid out the neighborhood in the early 20th century. They all have streets named after them today.
