Car: Not Necessary

This exquisitely elegant, quiet and comfortable apartment is located in historic district of Bywater, once considered a bohemian neighborhood now housing a hipster crowd with it's laid back charm.

It is located in Dauphine, between Louise and Clouet surrounded by most of the shops, restaurants, artists shops, bars and coffee places of the neighborhood.

It is very pleasant to stroll down or ride a bike by Dauphine, Royal or Chartres Streets.


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 Marigny-Bywater:
We lived in the French Quarter and were enamored by the laid back ambiance of the Bywater, a gorgeous historic district just blocks away of all the touristic activity. We could not resist the idea of establishing eventually our art studio on Dauphine, which now we have finally had!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
You will enjoy the laziness of the courtyard, a swing in the front porch while the interesting characters that live in the Bywater go about their businesses. An stroll through the neighborhood is a wonderful experience.
