Property description

Relax on the front balcony under stately oaks in Uptown New Orleans; just blocks to St. Charles and Magazine Streets. Live like a local New Orleanian, soaking in the tropical atmosphere of the Old South at this spacious and accommodating abode. This charming 1880s home, once owned by a Senator has been charmingly renovated in 2008 and 2009. Included are fabulous makeovers in the new kitchen with granite countertops, bedrooms, and baths...renovated to perfection!

From the elegant master bedroom, step through time; step through the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook majestic Napoleon Avenue. Beautiful pine floors, original to the house have been redone and glisten. This stately home features original cast iron fencing and gate, an old St. Louis brick pathway to a courtyard, stained glass, high ceilings, ceiling fans, fireplaces, formal dining room, transoms, a balcony bistro set, ceiling medallions, crown molding throughout, and with all the fine amenities to make your stay enjoyable and memorable.

This comfortable atmosphere has the features of home with a furnished kitchen with all new appliances including a full-size microwave, dishwasher, stove, coffee maker, hot water dispenser, and disposal. A new washer and dryer are within the unit for your use. All these features comfortably accommodate up to 8 guests.

This stately home is surrounded by the ole New Orleans charm with streetcars just blocks away that will take you to many destinations throughout the city including the French Quarter, Superdome, Canal Street, Lower Garden District, Central Business District, City Park, Audubon Zoo, and historical cemeteries. The streetcar would be a great choice to take you to the historic universities Loyola, Tulane, and Xavier. Magazine Street is two blocks in the other direction which is well known for its eclectic shops, antiques, French pastries, and local restaurant favorites. Visit New Orleans, for pleasure or business, and you will find a relaxing and comforting environment that welcomes you back again.

Why choose our place over others? There are a lot of reasons.

** Location! Location! Location! The Napoleon House is located to all sorts of restaurants (from fine dining to very casual and in many cuisines), varied shops, Tipitina's (where Professor Long Hair played), generational bar (Mae's), grocery stores, streetcar, bus lines and the list goes on.... If you're into sports, there's Lawrence Square at the corner which has a basketball court, soccer field and a playground for small children. In the next block there's also a library and a spectacular Catholic Church which is worth a tour.

** Architectural Neighborhood!! You could walk for miles and never see the same house twice. The varied styles, bright colors and architectural features are unique with each beautiful home.

** If it rains and you want to stay in - enjoy watching TV on a large' HD screen watching movies or sports on Cox Cable. You can also access the web with complimentary wifi access.

** All items are of high quality and is fully furnished so all that is missing is you.

** Great for those get-togethers with family and friends.
