French Quarter apartment description

Fifth on Fourth is the place to be if you're looking for a special New Orleans experience! The property is a 2600 sq ft, two-story penthouse apartment with four bedrooms, three baths, a special kids room, a wet bar, full kitchen, full laundry room with washer/tumble dryer, and a private balcony overlooking the French Quarter skyline. An architecturally unique space, it is part of a rehabilitated warehouse built in 1919 and no two apartments are alike. There are many exposed brick walls throughout the apartment and the balcony overlooks the rooftops of the French Quarter. There is also a rooftop community pool, a beautiful spacious courtyard common area, a rooftop community cabana with wetbar, and gorgeous views of the city at night.

The apartment is furnished with beds enough to sleep up to 12 guests and the style is colorful and eclectic, very much like the Big Easy! It will most definitely be a unique New Orleans experience! There are five TV's in the apartment: four 32' LCD flat screens in the four bedrooms and one 50' LCD flatscreen in the living room. The dining area is bistro-style, with a grouping of three tables and chairs, much like a bar or restaurant. The kitchen is fully outfitted with dishes, pots and pans, etc, and has a built-in microwave, full-size fridge with ice-maker, and full-size electric stove. All three bathrooms have shower-over-tub configurations.

Many world-famous restaurants are just steps from the apartment and the entire French Quarter is just outside the gates. It is a very secure building and the apartment is on the fourth and fifth floors, thus the name Fifth on Fourth! The Canal Street Streetcar is just a block away and will take you all over the downtown area, as well as out to City Park and connects to the St. Charles line which takes you Uptown to the Garden District.

Bourbon Street is just a half-block away and shopping on world-famous Royal Street is only two blocks away. The Mississippi River is just six blocks away, as well as the Aquarium, the Canal Street free ferry (a fun way to cross the Mighty Mississippi to Old Algiers Point), Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, and much, much more.
