THE HISTORY OF THIS AMAZING HOME
This elegantly decorated Creole Cottage built, “of columbage and bricked between post” circa. 1808, is one of the rarest examples of early Creole cottage architecture remaining to date. This home is in the first subdivision of New Orleans named Faubourg Marigny. The plantation was subdivided in March 16 1806. This home retains almost all of its original architectural features including; its rare Ram’s horn hinges and original latches on the French glass doors. There are also very outstanding long latches which were used to open and close the doors. The ceilings are original and are “dressed and beaded” which are rare to find intact to day. The mantels are the most distinguishing interior elements in Creole domestic architecture. Two of the mantels are box mantels in the style dating from the late 1700’s to 1810 with columns supporting a frieze having strong horizontal moldings. The floors are beautiful large plank and the original moldings are intact. This property was sold to one of the first women of color to purchase property in the United States. Madame Magdalene Baure’ purchased three lots which now form the sites of 1426 and 1434 Burgundy and of 928, 930 and 934 Kerlerec. This property now has 4 other cottages, two of which were believed to be very early barge board cottages from the early 1800’s most likely moved here at a later date. There is also a servant’s quarter at the back which is possibly one of the early buildings on the property. The main house and other cottages all have the conveniences of the modern home. This property is now a very quaint and lovely Guest House. Experience the amazing architecture very few ever get to see in an elegantly decorated home constructed 200 years age.

The place was nice and convenient for a large group of people
Location is everything
February 1, 2009
We stayed in the cottage unit and loved the location, right off Bourbon Street. Delightful courtyard and our friends stayed in one of the other units so we had privacy but were close together. Downside -- noise! The Blacksmith Shop bar adjoins the kitchen wall and we heard the music until 2 a.m. Great for nightowls but not good for those who want to retire earlier. Kitchen and furniture were outdated but adequate. Parking was also an issue as there is only one "resident parking pass". Two hour parking is enforced and we got towed for not moving our car on a street cleaning day -- $125. ticket and having to pick up car at the pound. Ouch! Good value for the money, however, and location can not be beat.
