Marigny-Bywater house description

You'll feel like you live in New Orleans in my colorful, light-filled Bywater apartment.

The apartment is great.. very inviting and feels like a cool haven on hot days. A great place to relax, recharge and use as a base for exploring New Orleans.

The apartment is spacious and beautifully decorated with local and global artwork. I'm a professional artist and work in different parts of the world, and the apartment's decor reflects my love of travel, color and space. French wallpaper, Haitian art, furniture from Bali, paintings by local New Orleans artists and details from around the globe. Bookcase filled with great photo books to inspire your armchair or actual travels.

Apartment is approximately 1200 sf with 6 rooms, including 2 bedrooms with queen-sized beds, 2 full bathrooms, a living room and a dining room.

The living room has comfy couch hardwood floors, ceiling fans (and central air), 12-foot ceilings, the house was built in 1904 and has old-world ambiance with modern conveniences.

The apartment is traditional New Orleans shotgun-style (the rooms are all in a row from front to back). Second bathroom in middle of house is great for night-time privacy.

Entrances at front and back of house.

Large galley kitchen perfect for cooking or hanging out with a glass of wine. Kitchen has all the amenities of home, great for cooking elaborate meals or just keeping things on hand for quick breakfasts. All kitchen wear needed for cooking and hosting group dinners (colorful dishes, serving platters, napkins, place mats, etc).
Multiple outdoor living areas including deck with screened gazebo with table and comfy chairs, fountain/lily pond and beautifully landscaped secret garden backyard with various seating areas for chilling.
Front porch is shady with chairs and lots of flowers and plants. A great place to sip a cocktail, or just watch the world.

Guests can enjoy central a/c, wifi, washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave and all amenities of a home (coffee maker, espresso maker, toaster, blender, pots/ pans/ bake wear, cooking utensils, table wear, and basic cooking supplies, spices, coffee and condiments).

Access to outdoor fold-up chairs for festivals, welcome materials such as maps, restaurant guides and list of off the beaten path places to discover.
Hair dryer, basic toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, soap), towels, linens, etc.. you barely have to bring anything!

We will be there to welcome guests and answer any questions about the apartment, neighborhood, etc.

The Bywater is very accessible and next to the Marigny neighborhood, two neighborhoods east of the French Quarter. You can walk to the FQ in about 15-20 min, drive in 5 min. Marigny/ Bywater are filled with corner bars, great restaurants and places to see music.

On-street parking no problem.
Taxis come quickly when called.
Easy taxi to/from airport, about 20-30 min depending on time of day.

There is a bus line that runs through the Bywater with the closest stop about 2 blocks away.

Many places to rent bikes and about a 20 minute walk to the French Quarter, minutes to the Marigny neighborhood.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Located in the heart of the Bywater, one of America's most interesting and inspiring neighborhoods.

                          Colorful, funky, hip Bywater neighborhood. Everything blooming, you can hear the birds in the morning (and the neighborhood chickens).

                          Lots of musicians, artists, professionals and neighborhood folks. Everyone says hi. It's a great neighborhood.

                          House very well located in the Bywater. It's set back from the sidewalk and there are steps up to the porch with lots of trees, so it feels private, yet

                          very close to everything... Satsuma, Maurpas Foods, Suis Generis, Elizabeth's, Bootys, The Country Club, Oxalis, Frady's, Markeys, Pizza Delicious, Piety Snowballs, the Joint, Baccanal, and lots more.

                          Easy street parking, nice neighbors, etc. Great block, Dauphine between Piety and Desire.

                          The new and beautiful Crescent Park and Markey Park are both within a 5 min walk.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: I am a professional artist and educator based in New Orleans. I grew up in the midwest and lived on the West Coast for about 15 years before moving to New Orleans. I travel a great deal for teaching and for projects, which I love. I'm a public artist specializing in architectural mosaics and community-based art. I have been doing this kind of work for almost 25 years through my company True Mosaic Studio and more recently through my organization, The Global Mosaic Project. Over the past several years I have been working in Haiti doing a series of mosaic projects for a hospital built by public health organization Partners In Health. I am the Director of the mosaic program for a non-profit in Jacmel, Haiti called Art Creation Foundation For Children. I have worked on projects in Europe, South America, Central America, Haiti and Africa. I love New Orleans and happy to call it my home base. I have a studio here where I teach mosaics and create work for clients and public spaces. I have facilitated several community and public mosaic projects in town and am currently working on a mosaic facade for my studio in the Marigny. Here is an excerpt from my bio: Through her production studio, True Mosaics Studio, True has created large-scale projects for public spaces, hospitals, and commercial and residential spaces for almost 25 years. Laurel teaches and lectures internationally and facilitates community-based projects through her organization the Global Mosaic Project. She has trained thousands of project participants, students and volunteers, and provides professional development training to artists and young entrepreneurs. I am easily google-able.

                          Why the Owner Chose Marigny-Bywater:
                          I fell in love with New Orleans on a visit in 1997 and spent the next few years visiting as often as I could. I started teaching here in 2003 and bought my house in 2006. I co-founded a mosaic education and resource center in the Bay Area in 2005 and split my time between Oakland and New Orleans for several years before making Nola my primary home. No matter where I travel, from Paris to Zanzibar to Haiti, I always love coming home to New Orleans.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I love the Bywater neighborhood for its artistic, eclectic vibe. It is like no other neighborhood. My house is a lovely, strong and solid shotgun double built in 1904. Old world charm with modern conveniences. I live on one side and rent out the other side. I love the street, it is quiet and lovely with crepe myrtles and lush, tropical foliage.
