Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My wife Nicole is a New Orleans native and I'm originally from Chicago. We have two beautiful daughters Irene (8) and Saya (4). I'm a writer and my wife is in medical device sales. We're from two great food cities so of course we love to cook and entertain. We've lived in the Touro Bouligny neighborhood since 2002 having fully renovated our first and much smaller home on Peniston Street. With our first daughter Irene on the way in 2007, we found this beautiful home and have poured our heart, soul and pocket book into the renovation, one project at a time!

Why the Owner Chose Touro, New Orleans, LA, USA:
Impromtu dinner nights are common in our house which has lead to our kitchen and dining becoming a favorite for friends, neighbors and family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is just 2 blocks from the Magazine Street #11 bus which takes you directly to Audubon Zoo or right to Canal Street at base of the French Quarter. The St. Charles Avenue Streetcar is just a 5 block walk, making our home very convenient to use public transportation. Magazine Street has thrived since Hurricane Katrina and is now the most visited tourist destination in the city. From Shopping, Dining and live music venues, you have it all just a walking distance from our home.
