Historic hidden gem oozes with old world charm

Working with buyers to find their dream homes in New Orleans, I come across the good, bad and the ugly. Yesterday, I stumbled upon the incredible!

Tucked into a quiet block of New Orleans' tourist-filled French Quarter is the home and office of Kim Hunter. She's not a buyer, but rather, the branch manager of Movement Mortgage.

She's lived in the historic home since she was one year old and every nook and cranny just oozes old world charm. From the exposed brick walls to the tucked away courtyard, there's a feeling of warmth that only 200 years of history can offer.

I think you'll fall in love as quickly as I did!

          

Garden District Curb Appeal: Simple Design, Big Impact

  Simple Design

There's a Garden District home I was lucky enough to visit on the PRC Home Tour with the most stunning landscaping out front!

The owners just updated all of the soft and hardscape... and the impact is amazing.  Set against their bright white home, the pure green hues pop.  They've incorporated a few rustic containers, with the urns flanking the door and my favorite, the oversized planter that's just overflowing with lush ivy.

It's a clean and simple design, and that's what makes it so effective.
