Discover Gentilly of New Orleans

A Wide Variety of Highly Affordable Home Styles

A wide variety of diverse homes—ranging from quaint bungalows to sprawling mansions—ensures that there’s a home for every taste and every budget. The architecture of Gentilly differs from that of New Orleans, which tends to consist of more Colonial-style homes, in that many of its homes are 20th century bungalows and ranches. Affordability is definitely key here, with a cost of living lower than the New Orleans, Louisiana, and US national averages.

A Pleasant Mix of Residential & Commercial Development

Lush green lawns, tree-lined streets, and even miles of charming lakefront along Lake Pontchartrain await throughout the district. It’s a highly residential community, though there is plenty of commercial development to be found, particularly along main roads such as Elysian Fields, Gentilly Boulevard, and Franklin Ave. Additionally, Gentilly is home to the University of New Orleans and the historic Dillard University.
