About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathroom, sleeps 4 couples comfortably plus more

This property is a two story side hall Victorian built in 1897. It features three upstairs bedrooms (king, king, queen); two upstairs full bathrooms and a downstairs half bathroom/utility room inclusive of washer/dryer; a den with a couch that converts to a queen bed; a full kitchen complete with stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, cooking ware, glassware, silverware, and plate ware; a dining area; a living room; and a private back patio inclusive of a gas grill. The home comfortably sleeps four couples, but can accommodate groups of up to ten people using existing beds and single person air beds. It is fully furnished with good areas for both groups and privacy. Elegance and comfort are available here.

The property is centrally located at the edge of the Garden District. It is a two and a half block walk to the streetcar. It is less than two miles from the central business district, the French Quarter, the Superdome, and Magazine Street. There is a great selection of restaurants (fine dining and casual) and cocktail establishments within a four block radius.

Most of all this is not a hotel or a guest house--it is home. It opens the door to everything that New Orleans has to offer a visitor while making you feel that you are surely from here.

Car: Recommended

Located off of St. Charles and Jackson Avenues within walking distance of the street car line; fine and casual dining; jovial drinking establishments; Magazine Street antique shopping; and the Mardi Gras Parade routes. The French Quarter is two miles distant and accessible via the street car that passes several times an hour. The Fair Grounds where the annual Jazz Festival is celebrated is a fifteen minute ride by car or bicycle and additionally accessible by public transport for the more adventurous. The beauty of Audubon and City Parks with access to walking, picknicking, golfing, tennis, and museums is also only a fifteen minute drive by auto. The house is a two story, fully furnished, 1897 side hall victorian with a private patio area in the back. It comfortably sleeps three couples and a single. You will be ideally positioned to fully enjoy New Orleans in the same way that people who live in this wonderful place do.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: My family has lived in Louisiana for about 300 years, dating back to the Cajun Expulsion. We have owned homes in New Orleans for over twenty years, raised our children here, become grandparents here, and truly love living in this wonderful city. We hope and believe that the next thousand generations of Causey’s and Knudsen’s will have a connection to this place that we cherish as it has become a journey both appreciated and worthwhile.

Why the Owner Chose Faubourg Lafayette, New Orleans, LA, USA:
I recall looking for weeks with nothing that really met my expectations. I wondered whether my home as I imagined it did not exist. I finally tried an agent that completely understood. She showed me one property and I knew the moment I walked in the door. My first home is now my guest house. May you feel much as I did at that first viewing many years ago.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This nineteenth century New Orleans home is ideally suited for families and friends who want to enjoy Mardi Gras, French Quarter Festival, Jazz Festival, Saints home games, weddings, and reunions while centrally and comfortably located at the edge of the Garden District. Easy access by streetcar to Audubon Zoo, Parks, Tulane and Loyola Universities, The Superdome, restaurants such as Commander's Palace, Delmonico, and the beautiful veranda at the Columns Hotel. The French Quarter and historic Marigny neighborhoods are only minutes away by streetcar or short taxi ride. Inside you will find items from Pakistan, Greece, Spain, Indonesia, Korea, Nigeria, Honduras, Scotland, Florida, Texas, and Louisiana. You will find an extensive home library of good books including children’s books. You will find places to be together as well as plenty of places where you can have privacy. All of the bedrooms are located upstairs including the master suite which enjoys its own bathroom. In addition to a more formal parlor, there is also sun room which is bright and cheerful. The kitchen is fully furnished with modern appliances, and there is a washer and dryer for your convenience. It is comfortable and unique home and we believe you will truly enjoy staying here. This home has nineteen windows and twelve foot ceilings which give the house an airy comfortable feel. Throughout the home you will find original crown molding, ceiling medallions, and Venetian glass light fixtures. It has two sets of French doors in the sun room that lead out to a private courtyard shaded by a magnificent crepe myrtle, and surrounded by camellias. This fully furnished home is ideally priced for groups of people requiring more than one room at peak celebration times in the city. The convenience of its location and the bonus associated with the privacy of a home makes this location ideal for groups or families wishing to have a unique experience living as a 'local' New Orleanian.
