"Habitat Blanc" is half of a charming shotgun double.. The house is 3 blocks from historic Esplanade Ave and you're a 15 min walk in either direction from the French Quarter and City Park/Jazz Fest.
Live like a well-heeled local in this Victorian Camelback . Elegantly furnished with a mix of contemporary, mid century and original designs by the house's owner. There is off street parking in my driveway for 2 cars and is also central air conditioning/heating.
The house is designed for two guests but we do allow one additional guest with pre-approval
The space has a fully stocked kitchen with a Nespresso machine; WiFi, Queen platform bed, remote controlled recessed lights and ceiling fan in the bedroom.. The completely remodeled bathroom features a deep soaking tub. Right next door is a washer/dryer, ironing board and steamer. All linens and bath products and a hair dryer is provided.
Seventh Ward/Esplanade Ridge is one of the distinctly Historic areas in the city. It's an area in transition with a lot of home improvement going on in all directions, like all of this city. Located next to Treme' it was home to many Creole and African-American families in the 19th century so it features Creole cottages as well as houses from many different Architectural styles.
For breakfast or brunch it's a short 5 block walk to Pagoda Cafe on Bayou Road or a slightly longer 8 block walk to Dizzy's Cafe on Esplanade. Historic St. Roch Market is a 5 min Uber ride away and features a full bar and food from several different vendors in one spot.
Nearby City Park is one of the most beautiful parks in the country with a sculpture garden, art museum, gondola rides and kayak rentals on the Bayou. If you like to exercise, I've provided tennis rackets and there are great public courts at the nearby Lafitte Greenway which has a scenic jogging path for a peaceful walk or run.
All in all, you will have a very comfortable and peaceful stay in this modern home while feeling a little like a Nawlinian.
