Near Ursuline St., you can sit on the front stoop for 5:00 cocktails and watch the world go by or walk anywhere in the French Quarter. The main floor parlor/living room features a bar with ice machine, large windows facing Royal Street, leather sofas, and a Baby Grand Piano. Relax in a private garden with outdoor seating and huge covered porch featuring shade awnings to protect you from the midday sun. In the center of the courtyard garden is an ornate fountain stocked with lovely koi. Step inside from the back porch to a large stylish kitchen with copper pots hanging from 14-foot ceilings and a huge island with stools for meal prep and dining. There is also a pretty and festive formal dinning room for guests and a den/TV room featuring a big-screen TV and pull out sofa.
There are gas heaters in the garden and on the porch for cooler evenings - even an outdoor shower!

This is our home, not a rental property, so we are looking for visitors who will respect and appreciate that. Please know that if you are considering staying here you will have the real French Quarter experience. Please call or write if you have questions or want to see more photos. This stunning home is for the discriminating few.
