Built circa 1939, New Orleans’ Lake Vista neighborhood hews closely to the tenets of the garden city movement. It’s a serene, oak-shaded assembly of midcentury modern houses on arterial cul-de-sacs, ringed by grassy lakefront levees. Many homes face inward to green space and walking paths. The result is a park-like neighborhood where inner and outdoor spaces co-mingle organically.
This 2,873-square-foot listing at 50 Finch Street exemplifies garden city ethos. Floor-to-ceiling walls of windows, a deep balcony off the master bedroom, and an outdoor living room take advantage of the home’s prime location at the end of a cul-de-sac, facing one of Lake Vista’s five radial greenbelts.
Highlights of the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home include a heated saltwater pool with a waterfall, paved terraces, a carport, natural stone floors, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances. Built in 1950, this prime example of midcentury modern architecture asks $849,000.
