Property description

Imagine yourself looking out over the heart of one of the most fantastic cities in the world. You are 15 stories high- floating about the illustrious French Quarter and the Mighty Mississippi River- in one of the most luxurious and grand residences New Orleans has ever known, with all the world class services of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel at your beck and call.

Our Penthouse is one of the most spectacular residences in the world, with 2 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, an expansive living and dining room, both of which open onto our enormous terrace .We have a full gourmet kitchen, a phenomenal media room , and a rooftop terrace complete with private hot tub. You also have access to the services of New Orleans' only AAA Five Diamond and truly spectacular historic Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Host formal dinners, parties, receptions,weddings or just relax and enjoy yourself. One look and we're confident that you'll see what we're talking about. So come inside and make yourself at home while we show you what we have to offer.
You will delight in all the ways the Ritz-Carlton can pamper you. Order dinner and dine on our rooftop terrace. The lights of the Historic French Quarter and city dazzle, while a breeze from the MIssissippi River brings the jazz sounds of our street musicians wafting up to you. After dinner, enjoy dessert and champagne from our hot tub. Or maybe a breakfast of cafe au lait and beignets while basking in the morning sun as the French Quarter comes to life and the Mississippi brings history to your door!
At night, step outside -the French Quarter is your backyard and play away! Our food is legendary, there are restaurants galore-high end and famous or funky finds with fabulous food. In New Orleans one of our favorite pastimes is eating great food! Our other pastime is listening to great music. You can find intimate jazz clubs and historic bars or dabble in the spectacle that is Bourbon Street! Either way-you will have experiences to remember!
You may also host a rooftop cookout. We have a gas grill and lots of seating and tables. You and your guests will enjoy the relaxing vantage point surrounded by luxury.

Since this is our home, you will see our personal touches and feel our spirited personalities. We love to share it all.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I'm retired real estate developer, world traveler and philanthropist. My wife is an artist who creates her own handblown glass art and world traveler as well. We love to entertain and meet new people!

Why the Owner Chose French Quarter:
This is our personal residence in New Orleans and due to our travel schedule our home is sometimes vacant. So we use the monies generated from the tax deductable donations for the penthouse's use, to fund underprivileged children's camps at our non profit Safari Park located in central LA. Our home is magnificent and the donations to our non profit 501C3 fund an incredible mission. Thanks to you, the kids benefit!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
New Orleans is the most welcoming and entertaining city we know. We have traveled the world but Nola is still our favorite place anywhere. The luxury of our home is unsurpassed and has welcomed Kings, Presidents, Billionaires and most importantly the wonderful musicians and artists of New Orleans and LA. Come and visit and you will see for yourself.
