10 homes for sale along the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar line

View as Map

The St Charles Avenue streetcar line ranks as one of the oldest lines in the United States. Dating back to 1835, the iconic green streetcar passes through several neighborhoods in a 40-minute, 13.2-mile stretch.

Starting in East Carrollton, just after Claiborne Avenue, the Streetcar rolls (slowly) toward the river on South Carrollton Avenue. Hooking a left at the riverbed, heading downstream, it passes through the Audubon, Uptown, Central City, Lower Garden, and Central Business District neighborhoods.

The scenic route also passes through high-profile locations including Audubon Park Loyola and Tulane universities, and Lafayette Square. From a birds-eye view, the St Charles streetcar line mimics the crescent shape of the Mississippi River that bounds the city.

While finding a home near St Charles avenue is rare, it’s not impossible. Here are seven homes that are close enough to take an immediate advantage of this historic streetcar line, ordered from West to East.
