ARTIST PENTHOUSE IN IRISH CHANNEL 1 BLOCK FROM GARDEN DISTRICT

New Orleans Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This newly renovated beautiful artist penthouse is in one of New Orleans’ most amazing historic neighborhoods the ‘Irish Channel’. A unique neighborhood loaded with quaint Victorian cottages, only one block from the wonderful Garden District, and Magazine Street the best shopping district the city has to offer.

Built in the 1880’s as a corner grocery store, this two story, bracketed style building with a balcony, was designed to sell fresh produce on the first floor and to provide housing for the store owner and his family on the second floor. New Orleans neighborhoods are sprinkled with these buildings some sold meat and dairy products others sold produce, now many have been converted into homes, studios and even corner bars which offer great gathering places for locals.

The second floor apartment is light and airy with floor to ceiling operable windows which open to the relaxing balcony that stretches across the front of the building. Original woodwork,

7’-4” doors with transoms, along with the heavy crown molding frames the 12’ ceilings in the large main room that services as dining and living room. The furnishings are a mix of antiques and contemporary with original art throughout the apartment.

The sizeable bedroom offers a relaxing night’s sleep in the antique four poster double bed. An historic portrait hangs above the cypress mantle.

For the best roof top view step into the spacious bathroom, two large windows will make you feel like you are in a tree house.

If you want to be close to everything – this is the place for you!

Only one block from the magnificent Garden District, loaded with amazing historic antebellum homes whose architectural styles go from Victorian and Greek Revival to Italianate. It is a neighborhood of both local and national celebrities, writers, movie stars and quite a few Kings and Queens!, that would be New Orleans’ Royalty – Mardi Gras Kings and Queens.

Only one block from New Orleans’ favorite shopping district Magazine Street. No need for a car, Magazine Street has everything within walking distance. If you need groceries, a cup of great coffee, a birthday cake, bottle of wine, a message, a facial, jewelry, clothes, shoes, art, antiques, or even a musical instrument it’s just a stroll down the street. There is a restaurant for every taste from Coquette Bistro & Wine Bar, Nacho Mama’s Mexican Grill, Sucré, Gott Gourmet Café, Rum House, Joey K’s Restaurant, Rocky’s Pizza, The Bulldog, Sake Café, Café Rani, Magazine PoBoys, to Juans Flying Burrito. And just a few blocks off Magazine Street is the famous Commander’s Palace.

Only one block from two of New Orleans’ most popular corner bars – Parasols’ Bar & Restaurant and Tracey’s the Original Irish Channel Bar. This whole block turns green on St. Patrick’s Day with Irish Clubs marching in the streets early in the morning then a huge street party continues throughout the day. The Saturday before St. Patrick’s Day is the “Irish Chanel St. Patrick’s Day Parade” which travels up Magazine Street then down St Charles Avenue in Mardi Gras size floats pelting the parade goers with everything you need to make an Irish Stew, cabbages, potatoes, carrots, and onions. There are also hoards of men who are members of local Irish Clubs wearing kilts and trading paper flowers for kisses.

Only 10 minutes to all the fabulous attractions New Orleans has to offer. The French Quarter, Convention Center, Super Dome, Audubon Park & Zoo, Aquarium of the Americas, World Trade Center, Harrah’s Casino, Arts District, D Day Museum, Civil War Museum, Ogdon Southern Art Museum, Contemporary Art Museum, Insectarium, Mardi Gras World, Audubon Golf Course, and Theaters both live and film.

Transportation is so easy, stroll through the Garden District to St. Charles Avenue to catch the Streetcar, or catch a bus one block away. Because we are so close to Downtown a cab ride is pretty cheap.

My husband is a retired Architect, who spends his time sailing, painting, refinishing furniture and working on any project that comes along. I am an Event Planner working in New Orleans’ great hospitality industry.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Actually we were looking for the building, a historic corner grocery store to be converted into an artist studio and office on the bottom with living space above. When we found it we fell in love with the neighborhood and all the amenities it has to offer – easy walking distance to so many shops and restaurants,

Light and airy full of charm with a view of beautiful historic homes. You will feel like a local as you walk to the very many restaurants only a few blocks away, or hop the Streetcar to go Downtown only minutes away. Or just sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and enjoy your vacation.

Sophisticated and Enchanting NOLA Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 23, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
Astounding 1st impression- the high ceilings, the art on the walls, the bank of windows and step-out balcony, the four poster bed....could go on and on, made us feel our vacation had started the minute we opened the apartment door. The owners supplied everything needed for the perfect stay including croissants, attraction and restaurant information, toiletries, fluffy towels, hairdryer in the bathroom, instructions on how to use everything in the apartment and a warm greeting upon arrival. We were lucky enough to have arrived the week of the lead up to 1st Mardi Gras and the apartment was enchantingly decorated to mark the occasion. We came by car and parking was never a problem. The trolley was a block away when we wanted to leave the car behind.
Would stay again in a heartbeat. Would recommend to only our best friends so it would not be booked when next we wanted to stay!
Thank you for contributing so much to our fab vaca in NOLA.

Our stay in this unit was fabulous. The owners were friendly and helpful, though we only saw them when we checked in. The apartment was light and bright, spacious and charming. We had great restaurants and shops within walking distance, and we got a 3-day pass for the trolleys and buses for when we wanted to go to the French quarter and downtown.

We both slept so well here! The apartment was well stocked, as well. We will definitely stay here again if we come to NOLA.

Great Apartment in a lovely neighborhood

My boyfriend and I were very happy that we chose this apartment to stay in! Never having stayed in a VRBO before, we were somewhat unsure of what to expect. When we arrived the place was very clean and looked just as it did in the photos. The owners were easily accessible by phone and even recommended a cab driver (who was at the airport as soon as we stepped out of the terminal). The neighborhood was lovely and had a variety of shops and restaurants. We would love to come stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who was planning a trip to New Orleans.
