About Sam Bridges

I purchased this house in 2000 as a blighted piece of property. It was the worst house in the neighborhood and everyone laughed at me when I showed it to them. It seemed only I could see the potential of this beautiful lady. With the help of award winning architect Jackie Case and her husband Mark Redding, who was the contractor, we were able to return her to her former grandeur with a modern touch. Some of the design ideas that allowed for a full size third bathroom were contributed by my late mother who is a collected folk artist. Her works are collected by the likes of Delta Burke and Neil Young among many others. Some of the art work in the house is hers. In 2004 I met the love of my life Julie. Julie is a dentist in Baton Rouge. We quickly split our time between Baton Rouge and New Orleans while starting our family. So many memorable times have been spent in this home. We truly love to entertain and welcome you to share in this beautiful home with us. I have enjoyed this home as a bachelor while running my Naturopathic business in the dining room area. As Julie and I dated we enjoyed many romantic walks to and from all the exiting sights, sounds, and tastes of the city. Mostly, we never ventured more than a 15 minute stroll from our home. ; ) We still continue to enjoy the city with our two children in tow. Julie's business and family keep us more ensconced in Baton Rouge, so we don't get in as much as we'd like to….so we are sharing our precious lady with you. If there is anything that we can offer to you that is not already provided for, please ask. New Orleans has been my home for over 20 years and continues to be one of the best places in the world for friends, family, and fun. Oh, and my friends who laughed at me for buying this bit of then blighted property, well, they are some of our most frequent guests. I hope you enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we have.

Why Sam Bridges chose New Orleans

With the French Quarter a mere 1.1 miles away, I saw a fabulous opportunity to be able to play in the Quarter without the daily struggle of having to enter and exit the Quarter. Having lived in the Pontalba Apartments at Jackson Square I only knew too well the reality of the logistics of parking and the desire for a quiet nights sleep. Another of my loves is restoration and preservation. Care was taken to preserve as much of this homes original bones and structure while including some modern changes to make this double shotgun into a more livable family home. Additionally, I purchased two additional pieces of property that were deemed unusable right away to give this home a private gated driveway and an actual yard that the children could play in. This is unheard of in the CBD/Warehouse/French Quarter districts.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit of this now home is it's proximity to all the fun of the French Quarter, the business of the CBD, and the shopping of the Uptown and the Garden Districts. Being a consultant that travels, the airport is conveniently a mere 20 minutes away. The added benefit of being able to be anywhere I want to be in the city in 15 minutes by foot, car, or trolly is why I chose this most unique setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our "home" in New Orleans was one of the highlights! We will absolutely recommend this to friends! You all should come to Fargo, ND and stay at our house - Fargo is Fabulous as well - and very unknown in that region. Thanks Miss Pat and Sam - it has been a pleasure and we hope our paths cross again.

This place has character and charm. It's location is incredible. The owners are first class.

Would recommend this house to anyone traveling to New Orleans. My company produces events and we are also travel agents. We love it when we find a gem, and this house is a gem.

We had our family get together and everyone loved the experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you Craig and guest for selecting our historic home. It is nice to hear words, from a guest, in the business of "event hosting/traveling." We work hard to make our home welcoming, clean and inviting. As you experienced, it truly is a "rare" opportunity in terms of finding a single family home in the business/warehouse arts district of New Orleans. Like you, many of our guest love the architectural callouts of this 1800's renovation. Again, we thank you and your family for taking such great care of our little "gem!" Sam and Pat

Excellent Location for our Trip!

  • 4 of 5

Had a conference at the Convention Center - this home is an excellent choice! Walking distance to the convention center and so many wonderful restaurants in the CBD and warehouse district! Taxi drive was $7 to the French Quarter (if you are too lazy to walk) and a trolley ride to the Garden District.

House had all the amenities - lots of towels, linens and blankets. Absolutely perfect for the trip. Will book again. Ms. Pat was easy to work with!

The perfect retreat in New Orleans

  • 5 of 5

We had a phenomenal time at this beautifully appointed house located in a very central location in New Orleans. The neighborhood was peaceful, the home extremely comfortable and very accommodating of our various group of relatives and friends from across the country. Not only did we enjoy the leisurely walk in to the heart of the French Quarter but the local bars and restaurants were great as well which made a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. Our friends were easily able to visit their son at Tulane, we enjoyed the jazz on Frenchman, toured the city by bike and I even did yoga every morning in the very private and roomy backyard. No complaints at all, we would come back in a heartbeat. Owner Sam was especially friendly and easy to communicate with. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely, historic home.

House was immaculate and well-stocked, including linens. Owner was very attentive. Location was great, near WWII Museum. We comfortably fit seven. Even used the inflatable mattress.

Mardi Gras Mansion!!

  • 5 of 5

This fab house was perfect for our group of ten adults who came from Ireland for Mardi Gras 2017! Sam and Mrs Pat Dillion were very friendly and helpful before, during and after our stay, answering all our questions and even personalising the house by decorating the house for mardi gras with masks, beads, king cake and bags for collecting our endless amounts of beads of the stay.

The house has everything you need for a long stay, the beds were comfy (including the air mattress!!!) No one felt on top of each other. We had a few meals at the huge table which sat us all including some friends!

The house is in the perfect location for going downtown. It is about a 20 min walk to canal street. However there is a bus stop beside the WWII museum if you don't fancy the walk. The st. Charles street car is about a 5 min walk. With regards mardi gras parades, you are a 5 min walk to most parade routes. One parade finished just one block away so we did not have far to carry all our throws!!

We would all recommend this amazing house to anyone visiting New Orleans, especially if you have a large group. We only wish we could have stayed for longer. :)

Truly Rare! One of only three single family homes in the Art's District!

Located in the Warehouse District of New Orlean's Central Business District. You have found the only available single historic 'shotgun' style home in the District.

Fully renovated by the owner and an award winning architect, this home offers 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths for your luxurious enjoyment.

Resurrected from blight, this unique 1860's property survived and has become one of New Orlean's favorite shotguns as featured in the Preservation Resource Center's titled book 'New Orlean's Favorite Shotguns'.

A convenient walk will find you saying 'Look, there's Emeril's, The D Day and World War II Museums, Restaurant August, Harrah's, Convention Center, River Walk, French Quarter, Superdome ' and on and on….

Our beloved and cherished home has anchored the area and even been referred to as 'The Georgetown' of the Warehouse District.

Step onto your private porch for a night of starlet gazing(Hollywood loves this off beat area), conversation, or reflection. Better yet, hit the streets and enjoy the energy of a night of entertainment visiting the equally hot and delicious famous restaurants and local watering holes.

This jewel comes with the oh so standard amenities of WiFi, two big smart TV's, cable, phone, business fax and other office accommodations.

Our home has been the host of event parties, celebrations, and those seeking to explore NOLA both for business and pleasure.

Easily accessed, private gated entrance just minutes from Louis Armstrong International airport and literally a few blocks from the Amtrack, our home offers a unique private setting unheard of in most metropolitan areas.
