Property description

This property is newly refurbished and elegant when you walk in, boasting 10 foot ceilings, a fireplace and an enticing staircase leading to the lofted second floor. It also features hardwood floors, three skylights and the two lofted bedrooms that make this destination a one and only tribute to New Orleans, the Marigny, Frenchmen Street and the French Quarter. This picturesque hidden gem is for Mardi Gras people, friends who want to party in the 'Big Easy', couples, and a great spot for a guys getaway or girls retreat. It sits within the gated property of an ornate 1800's Victorian Home and it is on the National Registry of Historic Properties. The neighborhood is blossoming with coffee shops, cafes and unique retail shops. If you go one block to St Claude St you have a bustling area with brass Bands, jazz and music of all kinds with four bars and clubs within that block of Marigny and St. Claude alone. New Orleans has it all: SuperBowl, Final Four, Saints, Pelicans, Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, VooDoo Fest and Southern Decadence just to name a few.

This residence is one block to Elysian Fields and another two blocks to Esplanade. There is public transportation one block away at the corner of St Claude and Elysian Fields. The cottage is only 2 blocks to Frenchmen Street with many restaurants and music establishments and another 3 blocks to the French Quarter. Many nights you will actually see live brass bands playing on the street at Frenchmen St.

On Frenchmen Street there is an 'art gallery' for all your Nola treasures and your shopping pleasure. It is also about a ten minute walk to Bourbon Street! The Super Dome is 2 miles and the Garden District about 4 miles. This is a great place to come for Tulane and Loyola graduations! Louis Armstrong Park is only about 1/2 mile walk. The Mississippi River tours are just a short walk away along with Harrah's Casino and the famous Café Du Monde and the Original French Market coffee stand. Additionally, Canal street is a bit further up which runs into Bourbon Street and the Parade routes. There are coffee shops, local bars with entertainment and some of the best food New Orleans has to offer. Decatur Street is the place for some of the best seafood around. Enjoy the street music daily which is an integral part of the home of Jazz music, New Orleans!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are from New England with ties to New Orleans. Our cousin lived here for many years working at LSU. We now have a daughter who is studying Forensic Science attending Loyola University in New Orleans which gives us good reason to come down and visit. We fell in love with New Orleans at first site: the music , the people , the food and our properties! The fact is, the people here are just great; so hospitable and welcoming. The experiences we have had here are heart- warming. Since our kids have all moved out we now have three dogs. The last addition to our household is from New Orleans himself, a sweet mix breed that we adopted from the street. He is a gentle, beautiful dog you see in the photo! You don't have to worry he is not at the Marigny street property, he is with us in Boston! My wife is a teacher and I am a PGA Golf Professional and college Golf Coach in Boston. We have three daughters who are all either in college or just graduated. New Orleans has everything and I can't wait for the next time all our girls and I can make our next visit to the Big Easy for some great fun, rest and relaxation.

Why the Owner Chose Faubourg Marigny, New Orleans, LA, USA:
It's an Historic Property close to everything. It is the cottage behind the estate home on the National Registry and a landmark for New Orleans. The Cottage is small with open lofted area and staircase that accents it's beauty. Plus, New Orleans speaks for itself: Great night life, shows, tours, entertainment, sporting events, The Garden District, Bourbon Street the French Quarter and Frenchmen St. With all the goings on here: Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Southern Decadence, the grand Mississippi River, Jackson Square, The Super Dome, Sugar Bowl, Super Bowl and Final Four, The Saints and The Pelicans, Golf, Fishing, Parades, Parties, People; plus, Tulane and Loyola... it's the best place in the USA for a good time! Also, along the Mississippi at Jackson Square are horse drawn carriages and Café Du Monde, the home of the beignet.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Location, location, location and the location is simply fantastic: if you walk one block to St Claude you have jazz clubs, big bands or street performers and restaurants galore usually Cajun style, if you can handle it! If you go the other way, on Esplanade, there is The Port of Call restaurant or a bit further toward the Quarter you may run into a marching band or a corner quintet or a solo guitarist. They are all great and at all times of the day or night. Don't forget the neighborhood cafe and coffee shops that are everywhere. Just west is the Garden District, not far away either. Hop on a trolley or cab and stroll down the magnificent St. Charles Ave. and visit the many elegant shops, hotel bars and diverse restaurants. And while there, don't forget to visit Magazine Street, another popular hangout for a great shopping, dining and entertainment experience. Continue along the trolley route to Audubon Park, the Golf Course and the Zoo. Here you will see the great architecture of Loyola and Tulane Universities. Tour the mansions neighborhoods to get another view of early 1900's New Orleans history and the Garden District. The Homes over there are spectacular, to say the least!
