About the Property

Estate, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Built in the late 1870's, this grand antebellum home is one of New Orleans finest in architectural design. Imagine yourself in the late 1800's living in a southern antebellum mansion that boasted the finest in European chandeliers, iron work and stained glass windows.

This home has the finest of furnishings in close proximity to the St. Charles streetcar line that can take you from the Central Business District, French Quarter or to the the Uptown are that includes Audoban Park and Tulane and Loyola Universities. Come enjoy one of the greatest American cities that welcome tourist's as if it were your home 'somewhere in time'.

Given the architectural beauty of this home, the bedrooms are expansive with large doors and windows and tall ceilings. The king-size bedroom is adjoined with a large bathroom that boasts decorative ceramic tiles from the 1870's.


Further Details: The queen bedroom that hosts an old brick fireplace and shutters is adjoined by a beautiful, large modern bathroom with a whirlpool tub, and an open, walk-in shower. Ceramic tiles adorn the floor and walls. The third bedroom is large enough to accommodate two full-size beds, and an armoire with plenty of room to spare. This bedroom in the 1870s was used as a sleeping quarter to catch the cross breezes in the summer time using nine, large windows.

We love to preserve these beautiful and historical homes we see as gems.

Location! Location! Location! This home is found between two historical and lively streets, Magazine and St. Charles Avenue that has all the charm, shops, eateries that New Orleans can claim.

We enjoy the close proximity, the views, the people, and the history that it represents.

Off-street parking is also available for up to 2 cars parked in a single file line. Plenty of on-street parking is available in front or along side of the house.
