About the property

Charming LGD 1BR Shotgun steps to Convention Center, French Quarter, & Magazine

With 12-foot ceilings running throughout, my home has an airy, open feeling steeped in 1900's charm.

The home is ideal for travelers looking to get into all of the fun New Orleans has to offer with an elegant touch. Conveniently located within blocks of the Convention Center, Central Business District, French Quarter and Magazine Street shopping. With the streetcar only a couple blocks away, it's perfectly situated for site-seeing.

From front to back, my shotgun home has a unique flare of classic New Orleans style drenched in rich color and texture. This space is an oasis from the bustling city. It's perfect for afternoon napping or movies.

This home was built in 1898 so there are also fireplaces in each room adding a taste of true culture and charm to each setting.

About Laura Stirling Joffrion

I believe in living actively and enjoying the adventure as much as I possibly can. Whether its a show, art opening, or dinner with friends - I am usually good at finding fun things to get into.

Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I spent the last 13 years living all over the US - Atlanta, Miami Beach, San Diego, San Francisco, and Brooklyn. So, I've experienced many different types of people and love making new friends. Back in December, the opportunity to move back home presented itself, and I jumped. Being in New Orleans, I can't help but smile every day. Hailing originally from Louisiana, I've got that southern hospitality vibe going on. I have literally never met a stranger.

I am a very excitable person - a natural extrovert - but I am also easy-going. I like to explore and go on adventures... weekend trips are HUGE in my world. Getting out of the city is very important to me.

As a guest, I am autonomous and quite friendly (southern vibe! #FTW) so I keep things chill. I am very clean and respectful of other people. I tidy after myself and try hard not to leave mess. :)

My life's motto is to never stop growing and experiencing. That is the most important virtue in my book.

Come and stay with me - it'll be a real big blast.

Why Laura Stirling Joffrion chose Lower Garden District

The Lower Garden District has a historical charm with a gritty, urban vibe that gets me so excited. Everyone in this part of the city loves their neighborhood and values the culture.

The LGD is also super close to the Central Business District [CBD], the French Quarter, and Magazine Street. Everything is accessible by foot, but the streetcar is only 1.5 blocks down the street. It's a very special slice of New Orleans.

Incredible Design, Best Possible Location

  • 5 of 5

Laura's home is a beautiful double shotgun in the historic Lower Garden District, close to great bars and green juice spots (pick your poison). The space is a beautifully designed historic home with tall ceilings and hardwood floors -- quintessential New Orleans with a modern flair. Laura lives next door, so we ran into her while she was watering her plants one morning. She was very friendly and helpful.

We were able to get groceries at Dyrades down the street and cook some meals, but Laura had a guidebook that helped us find restaurants, shopping, and bars close by (highly recommend the sandwiches at Cochon Butcher). There are so many amazing places to eat. We were able to take the street car down to Audubon Park and walk to the WWII Museum in about 10 minutes.

Overall, we had a great time and hope to be able to stay again!

Beautiful Shotgun Home in the Lower Garden District

  • 5 of 5

Laura's property was clean, quiet and comfortable. It is perfectly positioned away from the hustle and bustle of the Quarter but not too far away if you want to venture there. There are amazing dining, drinking and shopping opportunities within walking distance and we felt safe in the neighborhood. My only qualm was that the A/C could have been a little bit better. However we were there during a heatwave so definitely a factor.

Hidden Gem in a Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing find. Quiet neighborhood with personality located right off fabulous Magazine St. It is centrally located, not far from the Quarter and near popular parade routes. This little wonder is stylishly appointed, mid century modern and very clean. It is roomy and light. We were so comfortable and are most definitely coming back!

Adorable French Shotgun in a Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is wonderful for its historical architectural details, high ceilings, transom windows and pocket doors. By far, the best part of this house is its location and close proximity to the French Quarter and the Garden District. It is a close walk to the Quarter, the Convention Center and situated the Lower Garden District. It is clean, well-maintained and very comfortable. It has lots of room to spread out and feel at home. I loved my time there!

A great space to come home to at the end of a music filled day. The location was convenient whether we were running off to the Jazz Fest, meeting friends or looking for food. We definitely would stay here again!

The Lower Garden District has a rich and varied architectural character that reflects over a century of development. This area of town is ideal for walking. If you prefer to take the trolley, it is located two blocks down on St. Charles. Additionally, there is a bike rental spot, A Musing Bikes, about .5 miles away on Magazine Street.

Coliseum Square is also a three-block oak-lined city park in the center of the District and is only one block from my home.
