About the Property

2 Bed, 1 Bath, sleeps 3

Enjoy the respite of Uptown New Orleans, a short walk from Audubon Park & Zoo, Tulane and Loyola Universities, Magazine Street, Whole Foods, and our finest restaurants, typically patronized only by locals.

Originally built as quarters adjacent to the larger caretaker's home, this residence has been meticulously renovated and upgraded with slate floors and a spa bath. The barge board construction, discovered during renovation and originally sourced from boats that navigated the MS River, is proudly on display.

The unique double corner lot on which the property resides allows for ample space that includes a secluded brick courtyard and green area.

While there is not a full kitchen, amenities include a mini-fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, big screen satellite TV, and complimentary internet.

Access via private car or taxi. Magazine Street and Tchoupitoulas busses or St. Charles streetcar line are within walking distance.

Uptown was built on the higher ground along an old natural river levee of a wide gradual bend in the Mississippi River. Streets were laid out either roughly paralleling the river's curve or perpendicular to it. The neighborhood was once known as Faubourg Bouligny and was annexed by New Orleans in 1870.

Major roadways echoing the river's crescent include Tchoupitoulas Street (say “Chop-a-TOO-lis”, like a local) closest to the river. The name of the street comes from the name of an extinct native American tribe that means "those who live at the river" in Choctaw. Formerly heavily devoted to river shipping commerce, as shipping became more containerized in the later 20th century, more of "T-chop" became devoted to residential and other commercial uses. The next major street toward the lake is Magazine. Magazine Street is known for its locally owned shops, restaurants, and art galleries. Next is St. Charles Avenue, home to the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar line, the oldest continuously operating streetcar line in the world. St. Charles was the city's "millionaires row" in the 19th century, and a good number of the architecturally significant old mansions still stand along St. Charles Avenue.

Near the upper end of Uptown, on and around the land used for the 1884 World's Fair, "World Cotton Centennial," are Uptown landmarks Audubon Park and Zoo, Tulane University, and Loyola University New Orleans.

Faubourg Hurstville was the first faubourg (neighborhood) of what is now Uptown New Orleans, created in 1833 by Cornelius Hurst, a wealthy businessman. The land had been part of a plantation once owned by Jean Baptiste Francois LeBreton. Cornelius Hurst, Pierre Joseph Tricou, and Julie Robert Avart subsequently bought the plantation in 1831, dividing it into three equal parts. Cornelius Hurst commissioned a plantation house to be built on his piece of the land in 1832. The site of this house later became the corner of Tchoupitoulas and Joseph Streets, now the site of Dos Jefes Cigar Bar.

Hurst named three streets perpendicular to the Mississippi River Eleonore, Arabella and Joseph for his wife, daughter and son, respectively. He named the fourth street Nashville, as part of his plan to get the New Orleans & Nashville railroad to construct a spur into his faubourg. However, both Hurst and the railroad went bankrupt during the Panic of 1837, and the proposed track was never built.

Although Hurst himself is largely forgotten, his name lives on as Hurst Street, which crosses the four streets named above. The name Hurstville is still used to identify the former faubourg, and as of 2016, still appears in local news items and real estate transactions.

Charles Walker, a superintendent of coal boats, built main house and adjacent quarters in 1869 after he purchased the site in 1862 for $900. Barge wood uncovered on property structures during renovations and now proudly on display were likely sourced from Walker’s coal boats. As these boats were able to easily travel down the Mississippi River, the lack of motorization prohibited them from going back up river. Therefore, they were typically dismantled and used to build these houses. The property remained in the Walker family until 1973 when it was purchased by Charles Vick, who crafted most of the modern architecture. The present family is only the 4th proud steward of this property in its 147 year history.
