Overview

About the property

Exquisite Manse Steps from World Class Dining

The 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, 8,000 square foot estate is located on a 1/2 acre of manicured gardens. The property includes 2 kitchens, a grand dining hall, a billiard room, a conservatory, a library, a weight room, home cinema and more with plenty of room for larger parties to spread out. Enjoy the graciousness of a Southern mansion, while still being only steps from World Class Dining, e.g. Shaya, Lilette, Cavan, Le Petite Grocery and other must-stops for Foodies.

The property is adjacent to Magazine Street and the historic St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, less than 3 miles from the French Quarter, Superdome, Canal Street and downtown.

The original site of the manor house of a large plantation that stretched to the river, it is a Registered National Historic Landmark and a winner of the New Orleans Landmarks Association's Special Honor Award

The three-story, Italianate raised villa boasts a luxurious master suite on the top floor including a king size bed, a queen-size pull-out sofa-bed, en-suite jacuzzi tub, separate shower, steam room, private toilet and bidet. The main floor includes a chef's kitchen and dining area, a library with a pull-out Queen bed which allows it function as a secondary master bedroom, with en suite bathroom, billiard room, conservatory with 1/2 bath, and a magnificent grand dining hall that seats up to 24. The bottom floor, features three bedrooms and three bathrooms with a very large kitchen, dining area, laundry room, home gym, home cinema (with pull out couch) and living room. All bedrooms on the ground floor have en suite bathrooms with full baths and showers, jacuzzi tub and classic claw-foot tub.

From the large, front porch to the lushly landscaped gardens, water features, and expansive lawns the grounds have the feel of an aristocrat's country estate. There is also gated off-street parking for up to four cars, open air, with remote entrance.

This is a quiet residential area and respect for the neighbors is at a premium. Given the size of the property, fronting a full city block, and its distance from the street, one need only observe basic common sense not to disturb neighbors. There are absolutely no events allowed. The property is not zoned for event rentals, and due to past issues, owner will enforce this prohibition strictly, and have any unauthorized event shut down.

Amazing bachelorette weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house is gorgeous, it feels like the backdrop to a romantic southern novel- everything from the dramatic porch, to the grand dining room. We had 18 girls stay here comfortably, and the hosts were excellent. All of the air mattresses and sofa beds were ready upon our arrival, and guests who stayed on these fold out beds kept remarking on how surprisingly comfortable the sofa beds even were. The location is great too; it's a ~10 min uber drive away from the french quarter, but steps away from the trolley and all the shops and restaurants on Magazine Street. There were some cockroach sightings here and there, but this is to be expected in the area.

Living Large

  • 5 of 5

My husband grew up in NO & we know the city well. Make no mistake about it, this is a home that even the locals marvel at as they walk by & the photos really don't do it justice. We stayed here with 9 people (4 couples & a child) for 9 days during Mardi Gras 2017. Because the estate is huge, we all had plenty of room to spread out & plenty of privacy. The main floor kitchen, dining room, billiard room, front porch, & side courtyard were our favorite common areas. The screening room for movies was also one of our son's favorites.

Every morning we enjoyed coffee on the sweeping raised front porch. Every evening we enjoyed the courtyard & it's twinkling lights as we gathered around the table for cocktails & tales of the day, or a friend playing the guitar & singing. It was magical.

Even before we booked the Grand Estate, both the property manager & the owner were helpful & communicative. If we had any questions during our stay, Lance was at the ready. They went the extra mile upon our arrival as several in our group had early arriving flights & didn't know what to do with their luggage. Although the house has a firm 3pm check-in, they were allowed to drop off their luggage so that they could explore Magazine Street without the burden of dragging their suitcases along the less-than-forgiving sidewalks.

The location is ideal. With Magazine Street 1 block away, we were within walking distance to many great eateries, bars, & boutiques. One of the city's best restaurants, Lilette, is a block away. Shaya, Atchafalaya, Cavan, & La Petit Grocery all offer amazing food. For more casual dining there is District Doughnuts & Sliders, Dat Dog, Mahony's, Joey K's, & Rum House. If you really want to live like a local, order several pounds of boiled crawfish when in season at Big Fisherman & eat outside in the courtyard! Our favorite place for beer in the city is The Bulldog & we love Le Bon Temp Roule on a Thurs night to hear Soul Rebels play. Walk to all of these from this amazing estate!

Besides being close to Magazine, the house is only 4-5 blocks from beautful, majestic St. Charles Ave. where many of the parades roll by. Take a streetcar to the Riverbend to admire the beautiful mansions & eat a chili omelet & chocolate freeze at Camellia Grill. You can also take a streetcar into the CBD/French Quarter.

Ideal location! Beautiful house! Perfect for large groups. Highly recommended! We would definitely stay here again.

Great Space for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

This was a great space for a large group gathering. We conducted a reunion for a fellowship program and it was so wonderful to be able to all bunk up together. We had 14 beds setup so we could all stay in one place. The large dining table meant we were able to have big group conversations which was our main convening area. There were lots of living rooms and parlor rooms, but none that could hold all of us, so it was good for breaking out into smaller groups. All in all it was a great location and the owner was very friendly and helpful. I would totally stay here again in the future

Amazing property with beautiful architecture

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our wedding party for a week. It was large enough so that nobody felt cramped and had plenty of bathrooms for 18 people to shower. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Live like a Southern Bell or Gentleman!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Antebellum home will take you back in time. Eat in the grand dining room/ballroom at an antique table that seats over 20, play pool and have a bourbon in the billiards room or walk through the floor to ceiling windows that open to the porch to check out the gardens, you get to live like the old Southern rich use to live. At least for the weekend. Then retire to the master bedroom which takes up the entire 3rd floor and enjoy the jacuzzi tub.

We enjoyed everything about our stay, and the owner and property manager were so helpful. Best weekend in New Orleans, ever!
