Property description

Journey into the opulence and luxury of the old south when you stay in this elegantly appointed old world home. Built in 1840 and convenienly located in the Historic Garden District with all of the modern conveniences at your fingertips. From the deep wide front porch to the formal double parlor and dining room to the very comfortable TV room to the elegant Master Bedroom to the huge inviting kitchen, when you're getting together with friends or family in The Big Easy or you want something really really special, look no further!

We are a short one block walk to St. Charles Ave where all of the best Mardi Gras Parades roll. Our home is located in a quiet family neighborhood that's convenient to all transportation, most notably the St Charles Avenue Streetcar. Hop on the streetcar and it'll take you right to the center of all of the action, antiquing in the French Quarter, shopping, casinos and our beautiful Mississippi River Walk.

For more local sightseeing, you need go no further. Just stroll through the Garden District and you're strolling through one of the most architecturally important, well preserved historic neighborhoods in America.

Several movie and TV stars as well as producers and directors have enjoyed our home and hospitality over the years. Leonardo stopped by on his bicycle one day while in the area and told me "this is the coolest house I've ever seen!" John Brotherton, daytime TV star of 'One Life To Live', and currently appearing in Fast & Furious 7 writes ... 'This Garden District Beauty is one of the most amazing properties I've ever stepped foot on. Having cocktails in the elegant double parlor you feel transported back to a much more opulent era and time. The home is filled with antiques and art. The landscaping is second to none, and the pool and putting-green are the icing on the cake. This home is truly a masterpiece frozen in time.' John and his wife Alison, are already planning their next trip back to The Big Easy!

Walk just a few blocks from home and you're on famous Magazine Street where you can enjoy our local bistro's and boutiques. Then after a tough day at the parades or antiquing and shopping, take a refreshing dip in the black bottom swimming pool before heading back out to enjoy the nightlife on Bourbon Street.

Experience the ambience of yesteryear the way it was meant to true Old New Orleans Style!

Our home is truly 'One Of A Kind' and it's the premiere property in New Orleans. With it's lush gardens and tranquil fountains you'll get lost in the fragrance of Confederate Jasmine and give yourself over to the sultry south.

We are prominently featured on many Garden District Tours as well as getting mention in several local books.

So come and enjoy our real southern hospitality in a real southern mansion!

We'll exceed your expectations.
