Truly Rare! One of only three single family homes in the Art's District!

Located in the Warehouse District of New Orlean's Central Business District. You have found the only available single historic 'shotgun' style home in the District.

Fully renovated by the owner and an award winning architect, this home offers 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths for your luxurious enjoyment.

Resurrected from blight, this unique 1860's property survived and has become one of New Orlean's favorite shotguns as featured in the Preservation Resource Center's titled book 'New Orlean's Favorite Shotguns'.

A convenient walk will find you saying 'Look, there's Emeril's, The D Day and World War II Museums, Restaurant August, Harrah's, Convention Center, River Walk, French Quarter, Superdome ' and on and on….

Our beloved and cherished home has anchored the area and even been referred to as 'The Georgetown' of the Warehouse District.

Step onto your private porch for a night of starlet gazing(Hollywood loves this off beat area), conversation, or reflection. Better yet, hit the streets and enjoy the energy of a night of entertainment visiting the equally hot and delicious famous restaurants and local watering holes.

This jewel comes with the oh so standard amenities of WiFi, two big smart TV's, cable, phone, business fax and other office accommodations.

Our home has been the host of event parties, celebrations, and those seeking to explore NOLA both for business and pleasure.

Easily accessed, private gated entrance just minutes from Louis Armstrong International airport and literally a few blocks from the Amtrack, our home offers a unique private setting unheard of in most metropolitan areas.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I purchased this house in 2000 as a blighted piece of property. It was the worst house in the neighborhood and everyone laughed at me when I showed it to them. It seemed only I could see the potential of this beautiful lady. With the help of award winning architect Jackie Case and her husband Mark Redding, who was the contractor, we were able to return her to her former grandeur with a modern touch. Some of the design ideas that allowed for a full size third bathroom were contributed by my late mother who is a collected folk artist. Her works are collected by the likes of Delta Burke and Neil Young among many others. Some of the art work in the house is hers. In 2004 I met the love of my life Julie. Julie is a dentist in Baton Rouge. We quickly split our time between Baton Rouge and New Orleans while starting our family. So many memorable times have been spent in this home. We truly love to entertain and welcome you to share in this beautiful home with us. I have enjoyed this home as a bachelor while running my Naturopathic business in the dining room area. As Julie and I dated we enjoyed many romantic walks to and from all the exiting sights, sounds, and tastes of the city. Mostly, we never ventured more than a 15 minute stroll from our home. ; ) We still continue to enjoy the city with our two children in tow. Julie's business and family keep us more ensconced in Baton Rouge, so we don't get in as much as we'd like to….so we are sharing our precious lady with you. If there is anything that we can offer to you that is not already provided for, please ask. New Orleans has been my home for over 20 years and continues to be one of the best places in the world for friends, family, and fun. Oh, and my friends who laughed at me for buying this bit of then blighted property, well, they are some of our most frequent guests. I hope you enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we have.

Why the Owner Chose Arts-Warehouse District:
With the French Quarter a mere 1.1 miles away, I saw a fabulous opportunity to be able to play in the Quarter without the daily struggle of having to enter and exit the Quarter. Having lived in the Pontalba Apartments at Jackson Square I only knew too well the reality of the logistics of parking and the desire for a quiet nights sleep. Another of my loves is restoration and preservation. Care was taken to preserve as much of this homes original bones and structure while including some modern changes to make this double shotgun into a more livable family home. Additionally, I purchased two additional pieces of property that were deemed unusable right away to give this home a private gated driveway and an actual yard that the children could play in. This is unheard of in the CBD/Warehouse/French Quarter districts.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The unique benefit of this now home is it's proximity to all the fun of the French Quarter, the business of the CBD, and the shopping of the Uptown and the Garden Districts. Being a consultant that travels, the airport is conveniently a mere 20 minutes away. The added benefit of being able to be anywhere I want to be in the city in 15 minutes by foot, car, or trolly is why I chose this most unique setting.
