Gentilly castle description

4 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Baths with wrought iron balcony furnished with taste of New Orleans and french decor. Beautiful area to walk in across the street from University of New Orleans Lake Front, 2 Blocks from Lake Pontchartrain, 3 bedrooms have their private bathrooms, enjoy the luxury of a Greek shower in the master suite, and private courtyard/atrium. The house is so typical of the New Orleans architecture with the house built around an open courtyard and windows for walls on 3 sides of the open area. This arrangement gives you the feel of living outside but the benefits of being in the regulated temperature. The family room offers relaxing comfort in the leather couch and recliners arranged to view the large flat screen TV with Direct TV satellite service. The neighborhood is perfect for taking a nice morning walk through the area with each house distinctive and custom built and viewing the beautiful landscaping they offer. And if you would rather stroll along the seawall of Lake Ponchartrain, you would have but a short 3-4 block walk to get to the Lake. You can then stroll for miles along the seawall, watch the fishermen, the seagulls, pelicans, ducks and enjoy the Lake breeze. The location also lends itself to taking bus 55 on Elysian Fields which will take you to the French Market, Café Du Monde, Jackson Square, or Canal Street without having to transfer or change buses. The ride is only about 15 minutes. Then if you want to transfer, for the same price you can catch the streetcar and travel up through the Garden District all the way to Audubon Park and the Zoo. It lets you be in the middle of all the activity when you choose to be, but then able to enjoy the peace and tranquility when that mood strikes you.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: Grew up in New Orleans, attended high school there. Now living in St. Louis doing property management. But New Orleans will always be my home. Once you've been there you always miss it and want to return. I still have many old friends there and some relatives. I love to go antique and flea market shopping. I lived in France for a year many years ago and still love all things French.

                  Why the Owner Chose Gentilly:
                  The Castle has good energy; very peaceful, quiet, and not just a place to stay but is an event in itself. It is filled with my favorite things that remind me of Old New Orleans or Europe, particularly France. The private courtyard is something that is typical of New Orleans but not often found in the more modern architecture. Its located very convenient to the French Quarter by car or by bus, but yet it is in a neighborhood with schools, grocery stores, restaurants and other amenities not found in the middle of town.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Castle:
                  When youy walk into the foyer through the massive front door and see the slate floor, the beautiful glass walls looking into the courtyard you will surely fall in love with The Castle as I did. Then the twin staircases going up to the loft and looking down on the typical Old New Orleans twin chandeliers add such unique beauty and character to the home. The Greek Shower Room off the master bedroom is a relaxing retreat from all the excitement and partying you will experience in the Big Easy. You will experience the beauty of things from long ago with the conveniences of the modern day.
