About the Property

6 queen bd, 5 ba, 3 ensuite baths 2 off hall, sleeps 13 adults, 2 children.


Located on the oldest avenue in New Orleans, once home to the expanding French-Creole population of the city, within blocks to the historic French Quarter, Jazz and Heritage Festival grounds, and a short distance to City Park and the streetcar line. Numerous famous restaurants and cozy neighborhood eateries await you.

The property has been carefully/historically renovated and is attractively furnished and well maintained. Spacious, at 6400 sq ft., rooms boast 14-foot ceilings, original plaster crown moldings, medallions, and 12-foot carved French doors, antique chandeliers, 6 marble fireplace mantles and three of wood. An authentic feeling spacious Victorian kitchen provides the necessities for breakfast, lunch or dinner preparations, while spacious galleries(balconies) afford the perfect setting to sip your morning coffee or late nightcap.

The neighborhood is experiencing a huge renovation/revitalization and all extant homes on the block have been purchased and are undergoing complete renovations back to their original appearances. In addition, the historic streetcar line has been extended to both ends of Esplanade Avenue. So, come by and enjoy a stroll under the stately oaks where historic residences line this grand avenue from the Mississippi River to Bayou St. John.

For those on the go, try the local CC's coffeehouse, Lola's restaurant, Santa Fe restaurant and Cafe Degas as well as the esteemed New Orleans Museum of Art, Degas Museum, cemeteries and City Park which are all nearby...or travel 2 minutes to the French Quarter for some of the most memorable sights and food in the country.
