Marigny-Bywater house description

Originally built in 1865, the entire second floor of this renovated, 1400 sq. foot, 2 bedroom 'storehouse' has its own private entrance with a full size elevator. Designed with an open floor plan, this apartment boasts 12' tall ceilings and a 900 sq. foot wrap-around balcony overlooking Chartres and Marigny Streets. Adorned with outdoor furniture, an over-sized hammock and a collection of colorful, potted plants - the gallery invites a relaxing atmosphere for guests to star gaze, people watch, and grill on the two bar-b-que pits available.

The fully equipped, eat-in kitchen includes a stove, a refrigerator, a dishwasher and another private second floor courtyard.

Imported Italian tiles adorn a magnificent bathroom w/ a walk in shower, dressing area and full size washer and dryer.

The living room features a 65', high-definition, flat screen TV w/ surround sound, a wi-fi connection, and a very comfortable leather sectional and recliner.

The master bedroom includes a kingsized bed, a walk-in closet, a dresser, and an armoire with a built in 45', high definition, flat-screen TV. The second bedroom has an antique, iron-wrought full-size bed and armoire.

This tastefully decorated home's comfortable furniture, original hardwood floors, huge 9' windows throughout, central a/c and heat and five ceiling fans make this home a veritable oasis for relaxing after jaunts around our beautiful but sometimes humid city. Designed for four people, there is plenty of space to provide sleeping accommodations for another 2 people with air mattress provided.
