Types of Homes in Carrolton

Some of one’s finest memories may take place in Carollton. On the far end of the Garden District, there are many Victorian homes mixed among Creole cottages and shotguns. The live oaks provide ample shade for pedestrians on hot summer days, as they make their way to Plum St. to partake of the famous snowballs. After a snowball, one may hop a street car and enjoy the sights of Tulane and Loyola Universities, as well as Audubon Park. Joggers take advantage of the sights and paths both in the neighborhood and along the levee. Carrollton is a neighborhood known for its diverse architectural styles, reflecting the vibrant history of New Orleans. The most common types of homes that can be found here are the classic shotgun houses, charming Creole cottages, and Victorian mansions. Shotgun houses, so named because one could supposedly fire a shotgun through the front door and the pellets would exit through the back door without hitting any walls, are typically narrow and deep with rooms arranged one behind the other. Creole cottages, usually one-and-a-half stories high, feature steeply pitched roofs and large French windows. Victorian mansions, with their ornate details and grandeur, stand as a testament to the city's prosperous past. Each type of home contributes to the unique and eclectic feel of the Carrollton neighborhood.
