Downtown-CBD cottage description

In the luscious garden of a gated home, in the middle of the city, across the splendid Coliseum Square and it’s waterfall lulling you to sleep lies this wonderful garden home.
The owners, an artist couple, have carefully thought out every detail to provide luxurious, comfortable living in this gracious garden home. Their 400 sq ft studio converted into a large elegant and comfortable suite for 2. Equipped with a queen-size mattress with luxury cotton linens, full bath with shower and all linens and toiletries supplied. A cook’s kitchen supplied with all basics and more, all new appliances and washer/dryer and large HD flat TV.

Nestled in a beautifully landscaped courtyard with fruit trees, scented trees, and flowers and sculptures by local metal artists. Have your morning coffee seated in one of the several sitting and leisure areas throughout, while enjoying this extraordinaire courtyard or lay in the hammock in the lazy afternoon, under the palm tree before heading back to the active city.

At the heart of New Orleans lies this gated home, a refuge nestled in the vibrant Lower Garden District. Located across from the magnificent Coliseum Square Park and intimately connected to everything... the mansions and gardens of the Lower and Garden District, the Arts and Warehouse District with all the museums, art galleries and finest restaurants, the adorned tree-lined boulevard of St. Charles and it's famous Streetcar.

Shopping at Magazine Streets, antique shops, art galleries, bespoke clothiers, artisan jewelers, potters, coffee shops and fine eateries is just blocks away.
Second Line Studios is at walking distance.
The French Quarter and shopping of Royal, Riverwalk and Canal Place, the Convention Center and the Port of New Orleans are within a mile, all walk-able.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Greetings! We are Matilde and Gustavo, both visual artists. We came in 1999 to New Orleans for an exhibit of Gustavo and barely few hours later fell irrevocably in love with the city. We recurrently exhibit in Ariodante Gallery in Julia Street. Gustavo is a well-known artist and regularly shows abroad and other cities of the United States. That is one of the reasons we travel often.

                      Why the Owner Chose Downtown-CBD:
                      We lived in the French Quarter, then the Lower Garden District and found the perfect mélange of village, rural laissez faire and city life and entertainment. A walk in the afternoon by Magazine Street or hearing the fountain of the Coliseum Square at night is enough to fall in love over and over again.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The charm of our garden, the smells of the trees, Noche and Amber, both fixed cats live in the yard, wanting to hear the voices from our visitors while enjoying the luxury of this peace. By the way, Noche and Amber appreciate it immensely when you put some food out and fresh water for them. Food is always in a container outside the kitchen door of the main house.
