Open house today, Sunday October 21, 2012

Uptown New Orleans is a special place.  Within this area we call Uptown are neighborhoods amongst neighborhoods, with wide variations in homes, quality of homes and simply homes done right for a reasonable price.

At 2509 Peniston I worked with my client from day 1, walking through step by step the entire renovation and design process.  The goal was to take the essence of traditional design, means and methods and mesh with the latest technologies that worked to create the greenest building for the money.  No expense was spared, from the foundation, to raising the building, to using treated lumber to using roofing materials beyond the norm.

Each space in this building calls to an earlier time.  Details such as recovered and refinished baseboards from 150 year old buildings, custom transoms and architectural vocabulary in means and methods of construction make this custom rebuilt home a thing of beauty to behold.

This home is not for those simply looking at price.  One has to understand the timeless essence that has stood the test of time.  One has to understand what has worked means you buy instant equity into a building that is already generating its own income.

Which leads to the next facet of a great investment.  Once one goes beyond simply falling in love with this home of homes, the numbers will speak for themselves...and they are good...very good.

Come visit us today, and join the others who will be there as we show off a renovated home done right should look like.  See the video and pictures...we have over 2 hours more footage if you would like showing the construction and 100's more pictures from beginning to end.
