Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: I’m Shannon, a New Orleans native, a married mom of 2 delightful daughters and a licensed Realtor in the State of Louisiana. I’m married to Jim, an attorney who shares my passion for renovating and caring for historic houses. We enjoy meeting the many interesting, friendly visitors who come to New Orleans. It’s very rewarding when our guests report their satisfaction with the level of comfort and value they experience at our rentals.

Why the Owner Chose Garden District:
I originally bought this home as my personal residence and lived in it for several years. With marriage and children came another home, but I still lovingly care for the Freret-Willeford House. New Orleans has so much to offer! Make this your comfortable home base from which you can explore the endless fascinations of one of America's most cherished cities.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This home has been referred to as “the quintessential New Orleans house.” A side hall, double gallery Italianate style detached town house, this locally-designated historic landmark will delight lovers of historic architecture. While completely updated in all modern day functions, the home retains its original moldings, plaster and cast iron work, columned galleries and other details that make it a uniquely New Orleans place to stay. It is also conveniently located about a block away from the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line providing easy access to all points uptown, downtown and to the foot of the French Quarter.
