Mid-City apartment description

The property is a 4-room shot-gun double built in the 1880's in one of New Orleans' oldest neighborhoods. The term shot gun refers to the layout of the house, in that one room leads directly into the next. Double is a New Orleans term for duplex.

The house is located in a fabulous Mid-City neighborhood that will allow you walk to coffee shops, restaurants, wine shops and local groceries. The central location of the neighborhood allows easy access to all parts of New Orleans by automobile, street car, taxi, bus, bicycle or by foot ... the latter two being my favorite. The convenience of the neighborhood to major sites and attractions is shown in the map posted in this listing.

The nearby Fair Grounds race track is host to the world famous New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, held every year in late April/early May. Thorough-bred horse racing takes place from November thru March and one of the best oyster bars in town is in the paddock.

Nearby City Park is home to the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Botanical Gardens, Storyland, the Carousel Gardens Amusement Park, Bayou Oaks Golf Course, Tad Gormley Stadium, walking trails and over 1,000 acres of green space and cypress bayous.

Come stay in an historic neighborhood and live with the locals!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: I love New Orleans and considered myself fortunate to live in such a fabulous neighborhood. Food is both my passion and profession. I grow it, cook it and have studied it to the point where I now have more letters after my name than in it. I hold a PhD in Exercise Science and Sports Nutrition. I am an avid cook, gardener, occasional drummer and lover of all things New Orleans.

                      Why the Owner Chose Mid-City:
                      I have owned the property for 13 years and recently converted the rental side into a vacation property. I have enjoyed the experience of having guests in my home and look forward to hosting your New Orleans vacation.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Staying in this fabulous neighborhood will allow you to experience New Orleans as a local. You will enjoy starting each day by walking to one of two neighborhood coffee shops. Don't be surprised if morning coffee and conversation lasts until noon. If so, walk over to Liuzza's Trackside for some of New Orleans's finest gumbo ... a lunch-time favorite among the locals. Enjoy dinner at one of several neighborhood restaurants. Friday nights usually mean a wine-tasting at Swirl with live acoustic music next-door at Fair Grinds Coffeehouse. Walks around the bayou are always a treat at anytime during the day. All of this and more are available when you walk out the door.
