This lovely 3 story, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom estate is located in a great part of the Uptown neighborhood just 3 blocks from the Garden District. The Estate is nestled in a wonderful area that is centrally located and is easily accessible to public transportation. The property is 1 block off Magazine Street and 3 blocks from historic St. Charles Avenue and the streetcar line. The property is a quick 3 miles from the French Quarter-Superdome area, Canal Street, and downtown. The 8,000 square foot house (7,000, living space) is on a 1/2 acre of manicured lawns and gardens.
The original site of the manor house of a large plantation that stretched to the river, it is a Registered National Historic Landmark. Construction on the current home began in 1859. The Civil War interrupted construction. The owner was bankrupt by the end of the war and sold the house to another party, who completed construction in 1865. That owner also over-speculated, and in the 1870s sold the home to the City of New Orleans as a refuge for widows and orphans. During this time, the house was used as an asylum and remained in that capacity for the next 100 years. The house was turned back into a private residence in 1973, and has remained privately owned since. It is a previous winner of the Special Honor Award by the New Orleans Landmarks Association.
The home is a great example of an Italianate raised villa. The home is 3 stories with a luxurious master suite on the top floor including several sitting areas and a large master ensuite bath with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower and steam room. The main floor includes a chef's kitchen with an intimate kitchen dining area for 6, another master bed and bath suite (and library), billiard room, music room, 1.5 baths and a magnificent grand dining hall that seats 22 to 24 comfortably. The bottom floor, features two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a very large kitchen, dining area, laundry room and living room. The first floor can be used as a complete unit by itself and has an internal staircase that allows 2 and 3rd floor access . Both bedrooms on the ground floor have in suite bathrooms with full baths and showers, one with jacuzzi tub.
The estate includes use of 2 outdoor courtyards where you can unwind and enjoy the beautifully manicured grounds and fountains.

The entire house rents for a minimum rate of $925 per night, with minimum nightly stays and rates varying based on season (for instance Mardi Gras is $1500 per night, 5 night minimum).
