Description from owner

This raised center hall home built in 1910 is the perfect place home base for your stay in New Orleans. With three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, you have plenty of privacy. One of the bedrooms has an adjoining sun porch suite with an additional bed, perfect for young families. The house has a full kitchen, and a large dining room if you want to cook at home, a sunny living room, perfect for getting together and planning your day’s activities. The large porch has rocking chairs and swings to help you take full advantage of the residential neighborhood, feel like a local and have a glass of wine and relax looking out over the fabulous architectural detail of the neighboring homes which make New Orleans so famous. Lastly we have a lush tropical courtyard, secreted away in the back of the home, let the tropical vegetation and water sounds of the fountain lull you back to a different era where we slowed down to enjoy good conversation and the stars above.

While providing a private idyllic get away the home is just two short block to the St. Charles streetcar providing easy access to the World war 11 Museum, Tulane and Loyola university, the French Quarter and music clubs of the Marginy Neighborhood. Nothing is far away in New Orleans and the streetcar puts everything the city can offer at your finger tips.

About the area

The home is in Uptown Garden District of New Orleans 2 blocks from the St. Charles Avenue and the streetcar which provides easy access to the French Quarter and Tulane and Loyola universities. The street is full of residential homes built at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century with world famous architecture. The neighborhood was originally part of the Bouligny Plantation and was annexed as part of the city in the early 1900s. Live Oak, magnolia and palm trees line the street as do sweet olive and camellia bushes and many tropical fauna common to the New Orleans area. You will find peace and quiet on the street and can sit up on the wide porch and watch the world go by but we are close by to many restaurants and shopping which make New Orleans an ideal vacation spot. We are literally around the corner from Martin’s Wine Cellar a family owned business providing wine spirits, wonderful sandwiches, cakes, and deli foods. The gracious homes and live oak trees which form a canopy spanning the wide lanes is a short two blocks away. In addition to Martin’s Wine Cellar the Cleaver & Co. providing locally sources meat is two blocks away. The French Quarter is a fifteen minute streetcar ride and Audubon Park and its world famous zoo is a quick ten minute ride in the opposite direction. Many neighborhood eateries are close by as well. Hop on over to Magazine St and you'll find over three miles of locally owned restaurants and unique shops, art galleries and antique stores. The Garden District with it’s beautiful mansions and the Layfayette Cemetary are also within close walking distance. Superior Seafood, Pascal's Manale, Martin Wine Cellar, Delachaise, Superior Grill are all within blocks. The Aline Beer Garden has daily pop up restaurants and the Prytania Coffee Bar offers French press coffee and morning scones. .

“Lovely Home”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2016

This was our first visit to New Orleans and we couldn't be happier with our decision to stay here. For our arrival the owner had cold drinks in the fridge for us and left us a nice list of breakfast spot recommendations -- try Toast and Surrey's! The home is 100 years old and has been very well taken care of, without losing any of its charm. It is spacious with large bedrooms and comfortable beds. The layout was perfect for our family (two children ages 5 and 12). My daughter and I enjoyed sitting on the porch swing together. The kitchen seemed like it had everything you would need to cook a meal but we chose to dine out. The home is a short walk to the St Charles streetcar and the neighborhood felt very safe.

Owner's reply: Thanks Pushya! So happy that your family enjoyed my home.
