Greenhouse Camelback in the Bywater

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bathrooms in the Bywater close to the Marigny & French Quarter

This recently renovated 2700 sq ft. Camelback Shotgun is an unusual out of the box Bywater Casa for the discerning Artist/Musician/film crew in residence, or short or long term travelers.

Meticulously designed by the owner/designer with 5 batches of reclaimed wood from various Louisiana locations: Lafayette, Covington, New Orleans and Natchez Mississippi as well 1600' of pine from the Hosier state of Indiana. This is a real living residence and not your typical Nola vacation rental property.

Greenhouse features a generous entry foyer, music parlor complete with Yamaha upright piano, Danelectro and Acoustic vintage amps, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large open kitchen/grand room 800 sq ft. with 12' farm table, Verona Italian cook stove, 9' maple top island with complete pantry. The big kitchen room has 2 doors opening onto the 26' x 8' covered porch looking on to the west facing bucolic garden adorned with 6000 aged St Joe bricks and splendid church steeple views of the Marigny beyond. The kitchen space and music parlor can be made into one big space by opening up the 5' sliding barn door.

Designed with 1920's thru 50's Holophane, Dazor, Mg Wheeler and Benjamin lights, Emeco and Steelcase tanker chairs and Toledo, Lyon stools, this house is a throwback to the early days of ole American living. One of the best features of Greenhouse NOLA are it's vintage Philco, Zenith,Telefunken and Normande tube radios always tuned to the best of Nola's superb radio stations. There is a radio in each bedroom and in the kitchen. The House of Green comes with various books and music libraries and original artworks. Greenhouse's interior sheds character and charm from its carefully crafted reclaimed walls, use of vintage lighting, foundry molds and Americana artifacts throughout. There is also a sumptuous 600 CD archive of Jamaican, Brazilian, Latin, Indie, and assorted folk, blues, R&B, Jazz and Roots CD's.

This 9th Ward house is in proximity to St Roch, Crescent Park, The Marigny, Treme and The Quarter. The Bywater is infamously known for it's dive bars: Vaughn's, J&J's, BJ's, Markey's, and Bud Rips. Bacchinal and Mimi's are also close by. Greenhouse's "nom de rue" is mentioned in the 6th verse of Bob Dylan's "Tangled up in blue", and for those who are inclined to hear real good Live Music and don't want to just go to Frenchman Street, there's a large house list of the best music clubs in Nola and many recommended restaurants as well. This house uses energy efficient gas appliances, gas direct hot water heaters, mostly 60 watt bulbs or less, all dimmable and encourages a low carbon footprint for all users. Greenhouse caters to respectful Artists and parties and is geared to longer short term visits. There is an active train line that runs through the Bywater and Marigny neighborhoods. It's a great house and we wanna keep it that way. The pixs above should give ya a good vibe of what the house is all about, better pictures than words. Cheers and looking forward to seeing you soon.

Wonderful house but the train tracks...

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect for us- within 10 minutes’ walk from Saint Roch’s market and other small businesses (Saint Coffee, Hank’s Market). The interior of the house and the backyard are wonderfull, however, we would have appreciated a strong warning about the train track that’s behind the house. The trains passed slowly day and night and honked loudly- half dozen times or more with each passing. We complained to each other about it at first but then got used to used to it after a couple of days. We were visiting for the Jazz Fest so went to sleep very tired each night so that helped.

Wonderful Cozy Art Inspired home.....

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you walk into the Greenhouse you are surrounded with so many interesting details that you can’t wait to settle in.

First off there is a magnificent large kitchen, appointed with everything you could ever imagine... leading out to an outdoor terrace/ garden great for sipping wine, or having a morning coffee

However, its the reclaimed wood in the entire house, with all the vintage artwork, radios and multitudes of compelling books and music that just envelops you... leaving you with a feeling of such warmth and history .

I loved both dens/living rooms; one downstairs.. very cozy to hang after a long day and sit with a book, and the one upstairs where its nice and quiet to listen to music or watch tv.... both spaces are very inviting

the house is in a wonderful neighborhood where you get the full appreciation of the architecture.. i learned all about shot guns, craftsman and creole cottages... there are lovely streets to walk and so many eateries than you can imagine.. the quarter is close by yet far enough away to feel some privacy . .... and its an easy transport to see other parts of the city.

i really loved the greenhouse. my bed was super comfortable, my room an oasis... and i’d be so happy to be able to come back and share with others again,.

this house is a work of art!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This home is truly impressive; the time and energy put into it's design and details are incredible. It's so enjoyable to spend time here-- the layout is smart and the unique finishes are so fun to marvel over. This owner/designer has put lots of thought into this space and it translates into a beautiful experience for all who stay here.

There was plenty of space for our family to spread out and have privacy and we also enjoyed gathering around the large dining table, as well as the backyard for group meals and activities.

The Bywater is such a great place to explore, and its just close enough to the French Quarter for more typical tourist-y excursions.

Travis was so helpful in getting us set-up and settled and was always a phone call away when we had questions. All is as described in this listing and the house was clean as could be upon arrival. Thank you for such a wonderful experience! I hope to be back soon.

Great location and unbelievable home.

  • 5 of 5

House was fantastic. Our group loved the Bywater area and took advantage of all the places nearby. It was a great home to relax in-between outings. The owner has remodeled the home and has many interesting details to see throughout the home. Travis met us with the keys and gave us a quick rundown of all we needed to know about the area and the house. This is the perfect place if you want to stay out of the insanity of the quarter, but close enough that you can visit. We hope to visit again soon.
