Marigny-Bywater cottage description

Enjoy your stay at the Chartres Street Cottage, an exquisitely handcrafted and restored shotgun style Victorian cottage built in 1892. Privately located behind a locked gate, the Chartres Street Cottage is the guest house of an historic 1868 Italianate Creole residence. Conveniently located only 12 blocks from the French Quarter, this exclusive 1250 square foot cottage is in the historic Bywater. As the third oldest section of New Orleans, enjoy old southern elegance and charm at its best. Exclusive and private, the Chartres Street Cottage is exquisitely fully furnished with handmade, exotic hardwoods.

The Charm of the Chartres Street Cottage: In 'the city that care forgot', enjoy off street parking and your own private courtyard entrance. Indulge in the southern tradition of 'porch sitting' in your own private beautifully landscaped courtyard. The French Quarter is only 12 blocks away where you can enjoy beignets, Jackson Square, Preservation Alley and all that the French Quarter has to offer. Also conveniently located to the Jazz Fest Fairgrounds. The Chartres Street Cottage is privately owned and has been personally restored with historic preservation in mind. While enjoying your stay, you may notice the original crown molding throughout the home, magnificent pocket doors, classic pier and beam construction, antique roses in the garden from ancestors of our neighbors who brought clippings with them from overseas in the 1800's, and much more.

Amenities: The Chartres Street Cottage has 9 feet ceilings, central air conditioning and heat, ceiling fans throughout and on the porch, hard wood floors and carpeting, linens, a full kitchen, an enclosed sunroom, and a tin roof porch overlooking a private courtyard with a pavilion. Located around the corner from Markey's Bar, a favorite neighborhood watering hole. Be sure to ask for Roy Markey! Other local favorites in the neighborhood include Elizabeth's Restaurant, the Cake Cafe, and Feeling's Cafe.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1993

                      About the owner: Katherine grew up in New Orleans and Michael grew up in upstate New York. We have a 10 year old son. Michael moved to New Orleans in the early 1990's and bought old homes in the Bywater. We personally renovated (along with great help from family and friends) 5 homes with painstaking detail and attention to preserving the historical significance of each property. We met at Tulane Business School and now live in Austin Texas where we started a new concept store 11 years ago, Zinger Hardware & General Merchant. It is with great joy that we offer the Chartres Street Cottage to visitors from all over the world so that you can personally experience the history of New Orleans.
