                  Car: Recommended

                  The property is located on a historic thoroughfare of Creole New Orleans. The bike lane has just been expanded so expect lots of bikes and bike tours passing by headed in either the direction of the French Quarter or City Park for beignets and a tour of the New Orleans Museum of Art.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: I recently moved back to my hometown of New Orleans after spending the last 20 years in New York and Los Angeles. It has always been a dream of mine to operate an Artists' Residency hence this property has hosted several writers and musicians over the last few months and I hope to continue.

                  Why the Owner Chose Esplanade Ridge:
                  Built in 1911, the property was once part of the Dunbar Estate - the original land was included in the Dunbar Plantation. Esplanade once the grand avenue for wealthy French in the 18th and 19th centuries. The property evokes a time of New Orleans history that is long gone....parlor doors, high ceilings, hard wood floors and special details make this home a unique experience. The front porch is ideal for relaxing and entertaining....the back yard is spacious for grilling and dining outdoors.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  There are so many little details - claw foot tub, stained glass windows, parlor doors, etc. that make this property unique. It is my wish that guests appreciate the history and elegance.
