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 Warehouse District
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.

Loved this home!!
Not being familiar with neighborhoods in New Orleans and bringing our daughter and friends to celebrate her 21st birthday, all goals were Bourbon Street. However, after staying in this remarkable home in the Warehouse district, all our minds were changed by the end of our trip (which was too short). Our favorite restaurants and bars (Annunciation, Star Bar, Cochon, The Rusty Nail) were less than a block or two away. We did French Quarter, Bourbon Street, Harrah's, Cafe Du Mondue, and all French Quarter has to offer, but we loved coming back to this spacious home and neighborhood to chill out and regroup.
This house is like only 3 homes in this area and it has been restored to its finest glory. It's spacious, the artwork fills every room with personality, we had our private backyard and off-street secured parking! Kitchen was well stocked and the owner supplies everything!! I mean, soap, shampoos, lotions, conditioner, hair dryers, plenty of towels, linens, blankets, coffee, paper towels, toilet paper and more. Large bedrooms, plenty of space for our party of 8. The owner went above and beyond communicating, sending us "must do lists of New Orleans" and answered any questions. There's no doubt that we will be returning! Thank you for blessing us with this home for memories that will last a lifetime!
Jazz Fest 2018
My husband and I went down for Jazz Fest with two other couples. None of us could really believe our good fortune in finding such a gem. Sam and Mrs. Pat were a pleasure to work with. We will, without a doubt, look them up for our next trip.
The house is a perfect location if you are attending a conference at the convention center, going to the WWII museum, and not that far from the French Quarter. Good space to hang out in with friends.
Amazing NOLA house with a great host!
If you're looking for a house in NOLA with many rooms and beds then this is you place! it's cool, functional, and just a great place to relax. It's stocked with just about anything you'd ever need from extra sheets and pillows to plenty of toiletries in case you leave something behind at home. Also the host Sam is the MAN with the plan. I've never experienced a host that was so communicative and full of tips on what's happening during our visit. Also it's pretty damn close to the quarter too. We pretty much walked everywhere. It's also a stones throw away from a great bar called the Rusty Nail (great cocktails, beer and top shelf whiskey selection.) The Warehouse District had been one of the best places to stay, you get less random people out there and it's really close to amazing restaurants like Cochon, Butcher, Peche, etc. At the end of the day, it's a great big house in a cool neighborhood with an even cooler host. Do it!
Super convenient to Convention Center
Three of my co-workers and I had an excellent 4-night stay at this great house in April 2018. The best part was the proximity (only three blocks away) to the Convention Center, where we were attending a 3-day conference. But the house was also very comfortable for us, with a well appointed kitchen, three bathrooms and a really nice living room overlooking the backyard. With four co-workers, we did have to double up in the sleeping loft (two beds made this possible) and we used the first floor "futon" room as a bedroom, which was fine, thanks to the sliding door to allow privacy. One lucky team member (the only woman in our group) got to have the master bedroom (with private bathroom) to herself. So it all worked out, although the sleeping arrangement is probably better for families than for a group of co-workers like us. It was also handy that we were three doors down from The Rusty Nail, and only two blocks from Annunciation, which is a great restaurant. Special thanks to Pat for cleaning the place, answering our questions, and generally being nice and accommodating. We would definitely be happy to stay at this house again in future.
Gorgeous House in the Perfect Walkable Neighborhood!
I came to NOLA with a group of 8 friends from high school and we stayed for 3 nights at this gorgeous house. Everything was great ahead of time and we were given 2 people to contact in case we needed anything. They provided us with information on the neighborhood where we were and were so easy to communicate with. Once we arrived the house was super clean and exactly what we needed. The beds were comfortable and it was really nice to have 3 bathrooms with 8 women! The neighborhood was great and we were right next to a bar (but surprisingly didn't hear noise coming from it at all) and so we had a nice go to for drinks but also were within walking distance of really great restaurants and the WW2 museum. There was also a little grocery store around the corner for basic snacks and drinks. We loved our stay here and highly recommend it. Thanks for everything!
