Bywater Real Estate

Downriver from the French Quarter, fewer than thirty blocks from Canal Street, stands the historic neighborhood of the Bywater. Situated on higher ground next to the Mississippi River, this area stayed dry during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Recognized as a National and Local Historic District, the Bywater is in the midst of a renaissance, which means continued renovation and preservation of historic structures.

Known for its rich cultural diversity, the Bywater pulls off a quiet, close-knit feel within a large city. Its personality is written across the décor of its many Creole cottages, colorful shotgun facades and other buildings throughout this older part of the Crescent City.

Within this mix, residents enjoy local attractions like art galleries, funky neighborhood restaurants and bars, and markets. The succulent BBQ of The Joint is famous among residents, and equally beloved are the farm-focused small plates of Maurepas and the wine and cocktails alongside the live music of Bacchanal Fine Wine & Spirits. Locals also frequent the Bywater Farmer's Market on St. Claude for fresh produce, herbs and more. 

The traditional components of a healthy neighborhood can be found in the Bywater's mix of churches, schools and small businesses among its residences. New Orleans Center of Creative Arts, Lorraine V. Hansberry Elementary and KIPP Leadership Primary are just some of the options available to prospective students. 

Many of the homes for sale in the Bywater are luxurious condos and lofts in newly renovated nineteenth-century style architecture, often painted with bright colors. The relatively inexpensive cost of Bywater real estate has attracted a number of new homeowners who appreciate the old world charm of historic French Quarter or Marigny architecture but cannot afford those areas.

The Bywater is perfect for anyone who wants a progressive neighborhood with personality.
