Old Jefferson Homes
Jefferson, La. 70121
Once you leave New Orleans Uptown you will run into Old Jefferson which runs along the Mississippi River between the Levee and the rail road tracks and Earhart Expressway. It is an area that was developed in the late 1930's from farms into subdivisions. The homes and cottages here are closer to New Orleans. The Ochsner Hospital is in the center of the area. We in real estate call this area 27.
Close to New Orleans but the houses are 50% of what they are in New Olreans. The Taxes, Utilities, Insurance, Flood Insurance are all going to be cheaper here than in Orleans Parish.
Love the raised cottages, Curved door and windows and the fact that all will have parking and larger yards. Check out the lovely windows and doors. Most will have peaked roofs and real wood floors with large eat in kitchens.
My first sale in this Old Jefferson area was around 2000. I asked the owner how long she lived there and she said they moved in in 1939 and had lived there ever since. The house was well taken care of and had no carpet. I have sold and listed several since and all the clients were very happy. People love these cottages and the location. No Flooding and the area is super safe....
