Garden District house description

Come enjoy the Big Easy in this beautiful, newly-renovated home in the heart of New Orleans. The historic house was built five years after the Civil War and has been renovated with luxurious appointments throughout. At 4000 square feet, this gorgeous residence has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, three outdoor porches, high ceilings, chandeliers, gleaming hardwood floors and lots of sun and light. Enjoy a lemonade in the front porch swing, or lounge on the back porch's outdoor living area near the banana trees.

One block off the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line and parade route, the home is in the best location in New Orleans, at an address the 'New Orleans Times Picayune' calls '..one of the most striking blocks in the city.'

In ideal proximity to the restaurants and history of the French Quarter, Garden District and Marigny you could hop on the streetcar for a trip to the French Quarter, or wander over to the Columns Hotel for a Sazerac before dinner. This lovely home is a stunning example of gracious New Orleans living.

The interior is inviting and chic; a well-curated collection of antiques shipped from Paris, hand-loomed rugs purchased in the markets of Iran, custom blown chandeliers from Murano, embroidered textiles from craftswomen in Uzbekistan. The furnishings reflect an international lifestyle, but most important, create a warm, comfortable home.

At the end of a delightful day retreat to your room, lavished with 500 thread count linens and Anichini duvets. The Master bedroom's king bed and Guest Suite's queen are both wrought iron canopy beds; each room has a full attached bath. Or, choose the Jungle Room or White Room just down the hall, equipped with custom made X-long twin beds said by some to be the most comfortable in the house.

Details you won't want to overlook:
--Jacuzzi tub and steam shower in master bath
--Antique claw footed tub in guest bath
--Back porch living and dining areas
--Well-stocked bookshelves
--Flat screen 58' TV
--Wi-Fi
--Wireless stereo with iPod docking station
--State of the art security system
--Cleaning service during your stay

Maximum eight (8) people, including children. Minimum four (4) days.

This home is not for smokers or pets, and of course is perfect for well-behaved children (and adults).

                          Location

                          Walk a block to St. Charles Avenue and catch the streetcar to the French Quarter. Or, walk over to the Columns Hotel for a Sazerac before dinner; the area abounds with wonderful local cuisine. Just strolling through the neighborhood enjoying the architecture is fabulous sightseeing!

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: Born and raised in Uptown New Orleans I've lived in other cities most of my adult life. More recently, though, I kept thinking of the famous song 'Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans?' Well, I do, so I've come home. It's such a pleasure to be back!

                          Why the Owner Chose Garden District:
                          This is my primary residence, although I travel extensively and am happy to share my house with visitors when I'm in other locales.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I like to run in the mornings up St. Charles to Audubon Park, then go and have coffee at CC's on Magazine Street.
