Uptown-Carrollton estate description

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 4 blocks from the historic St. Charles Avenue. The property is a quick 3 miles from the French Quarter-Superdome area found on or close to Canal Street downtown. It is a Registered National Historic Landmark home that was once a plantation. Construction on the home began in 1859. The owner was bankrupt by the start of the Civil War so construction of the home wasn't completed until 1865. The owners sold the home to the City of New Orleans as a refuge for widows and orphans after the war. 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 Registered as a National Historic Landmark and is a previous winner of the Special Honor Award by the New Orleans HDLC. 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. The main floor includes a chef's kitchen with an intimate kitchen dining area for 6, a library, billiard room, music room, 1.5 baths and a magnificent grand dining room that seats 22 comfortably. The bottom floor, once the slave quarters and kitchen area features two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a very large kitchen, 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 showers . The estate includes use of 2 outdoor patio areas where you can unwind and enjoy the beautifully manicured grounds and fountains. We offer gated 2 car off street parking in an open air garage with remote entrance. The entire house rents for $800 per night minimum nightly and will vary with occasion. There is an additional fee for parties/events that include guests of 25 to more. 25 to 100 guests $500, 100 to 200 $1000 and please call for assistance if ore than 200 guests are expected. This is a quiet residential area and respect for the neighbors is at a premium . Please refer to the pictures for an additional visual survey of the property.
