French Quarter house description

Located on the oldest avenue in New Orleans, once home to the expanding French-Creole population of the city, within blocks to the historic French Quarter, Jazz and Heritage Festival grounds, and a short distance to City Park and the streetcar line. Numerous famous restaurants and cozy neighborhood eateries await you.

The property is attractively furnished, well maintained and has four seperate guest suites/apartments(see details at bed description below). Spacious rooms boast 14-foot ceilings, original plaster crown moldings, medallions, and 12-foot carved French doors. Newly remodeled kitchen provides the necessities for breakfast, lunch or dinner preparations, while spacious galleries(balconies) afford the perfect setting to sip your morning coffee or late nightcap. Stroll the avenue under the stately oaks and enjoy the beauty of the historic residences that line this grand avenue from the Mississippi River to Bayou St. John.

For those on the go, try the local CC's coffeehouse, Lola's restaurant and Cafe Degas as well as enjoying the New Orleans Museum of Art, Degas Museum, cemetaries and City Park which are all nearby. Travel 3 minutes to the French Quarter and you are in for some of the most memorable sights and food in the country.
