About Sam Bridges

I purchased this house in 2000 as a blighted piece of property. It was the worst house in the neighborhood and everyone laughed at me when I showed it to them. It seemed only I could see the potential of this beautiful lady. With the help of award winning architect Jackie Case and her husband Mark Redding, who was the contractor, we were able to return her to her former grandeur with a modern touch. Some of the design ideas that allowed for a full size third bathroom were contributed by my late mother who is a collected folk artist. Her works are collected by the likes of Delta Burke and Neil Young among many others. Some of the art work in the house is hers. In 2004 I met the love of my life Julie. Julie is a dentist in Baton Rouge. We quickly split our time between Baton Rouge and New Orleans while starting our family. So many memorable times have been spent in this home. We truly love to entertain and welcome you to share in this beautiful home with us. I have enjoyed this home as a bachelor while running my Naturopathic business in the dining room area. As Julie and I dated we enjoyed many romantic walks to and from all the exiting sights, sounds, and tastes of the city. Mostly, we never ventured more than a 15 minute stroll from our home. ; ) We still continue to enjoy the city with our two children in tow. Julie's business and family keep us more ensconced in Baton Rouge, so we don't get in as much as we'd like to….so we are sharing our precious lady with you. If there is anything that we can offer to you that is not already provided for, please ask. New Orleans has been my home for over 20 years and continues to be one of the best places in the world for friends, family, and fun. Oh, and my friends who laughed at me for buying this bit of then blighted property, well, they are some of our most frequent guests. I hope you enjoy our little piece of paradise as much as we have.

Sam Bridges purchased this house in 2000

Why Sam Bridges chose Warehouse District

With the French Quarter a mere 1.1 miles away, I saw a fabulous opportunity to be able to play in the Quarter without the daily struggle of having to enter and exit the Quarter. Having lived in the Pontalba Apartments at Jackson Square I only knew too well the reality of the logistics of parking and the desire for a quiet nights sleep. Another of my loves is restoration and preservation. Care was taken to preserve as much of this homes original bones and structure while including some modern changes to make this double shotgun into a more livable family home. Additionally, I purchased two additional pieces of property that were deemed unusable right away to give this home a private gated driveway and an actual yard that the children could play in. This is unheard of in the CBD/Warehouse/French Quarter districts.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit of this now home is it's proximity to all the fun of the French Quarter, the business of the CBD, and the shopping of the Uptown and the Garden Districts. Being a consultant that travels, the airport is conveniently a mere 20 minutes away. The added benefit of being able to be anywhere I want to be in the city in 15 minutes by foot, car, or trolly is why I chose this most unique setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our "home" in New Orleans was one of the highlights! We will absolutely recommend this to friends! You all should come to Fargo, ND and stay at our house - Fargo is Fabulous as well - and very unknown in that region. Thanks Miss Pat and Sam - it has been a pleasure and we hope our paths cross again.

A great stay in a great city!

  • 5 of 5
We visited NOLA for a family wedding and had quite a long list of needs from our house. We needed sleeping for 3 different groups, central location with easy walking access to everything, parking for our 2 rental cars and a little help pointing us in the right direction. This house, Sam and Mrs Pat met all of our needs and were so easy and responsive to work with. This was a really great place to stay! Thank you!

Great birthday

The house was charming and in a wonderful location. It was great for a family to celebrate a birthday in and around the city. Sam was very attentive and answered all of our questions and offered several suggestions for dinner. Would stay here again.

Great location

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in this beautiful house with its lovely architectural details- especially the pocket doors to the meditation room. It's much bigger than it looks in the pictures. The only negative is the proximity to the highway; the backyard is fenced in so it's not a major issue. We either walked or took a short cab ride into the French quarter, and the house is close to the streetcar line. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything a guest could need, and there were more than enough towels, extra linens, toiletries, etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your appreciation of our unique home. With the help of our architect who specialized in historic preservation, we restored this 1866+ "shotgun style home" (the records in the court house prior to that were hand written in French and I was unable to go further back in time) to highlight the beauty of New Orleans in a post modern era. Our home has been featured in preservation publications and in the book "New Orleans Favorite Shotguns." Thank you for your appreciation for our amenities, traveling should be fun and easy and we try to make our home to feel like yours! We love our home and glad you do too!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
The house is amazing. My ladies and I decided to have a trip for my bachlorette party and we found this house to be not only a perfect location but very cozy with plenty of space! There were 8 of us total, and no one had any trouble with sleeping arrangements or confinements. The house is located right next to I-10, but you would never have known as the windows are double panned. The trolly is also a few blocks away from the house (though we took cabs everywhere) There is a cute little bar located right outside the house as well, the Rusty Nail. Overall wonderful experience, can't ask for a better vacation!

Owner's Response: We aim to please our guest and thank you for your insights. Being in a business district can be a challenge with noise pollution; a tremendous benefit of a total revitalization of a historic home allowed for careful planning that helped to reduce noise including the window treatments and a highly specialized insulation. We appreciate your kind insights and remarks. Sincerely, Sam

Great place - Great location - Great owners

  • 5 of 5
Went to NOLA last August with a few friends. We were really excited about the house and it's location and it definitely surpassed all of our expectations. It's a beautiful place, spacious large ceilings, open space concept with a kitchen that's great for cooking. We had four in our group but you could definitely fit more than that comfortably. The backyard was large and private. Good for hanging out. We would walk to the French Quarter which was about 10 mins away. Lots of stuff close by, Mothers is right down the street and when you come home it's only like a $10 cab ride. Same for Frenchman's street - very close. On the last day we took an airboat ride out in the swamps and that was only a 20 minute drive away.

10/10 would go back again.

It was also great that the property managers were thoughtful and always there to answer our questions. They wanted to make sure we made it there all right, would offer recommendations on where to go and even volunteered to ship us back something we had accidentally left there.

Forget hotels, if you have a group of friends and want to experience NOLA stay here.

The house was absolutely beautiful. We would definitely stay here again or rent another one of Sam's places. It was exactly what we thought it would be if not better. Clean, well kept up, safe & fully stocked with everything we needed.

Truly Rare! One of only three single family homes in the Art's District!

Located in the Warehouse District of New Orlean's Central Business District. You have found the only available single historic 'shotgun' style home in the District.

Fully renovated by the owner and an award winning architect, this home offers 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths for your luxurious enjoyment.

Resurrected from blight, this unique 1860's property survived and has become one of New Orlean's favorite shotguns as featured in the Preservation Resource Center's titled book 'New Orlean's Favorite Shotguns'.

A convenient walk will find you saying 'Look, there's Emeril's, The D Day and World War II Museums, Restaurant August, Harrah's, Convention Center, River Walk, French Quarter, Superdome ' and on and on….

Our beloved and cherished home has anchored the area and even been referred to as 'The Georgetown' of the Warehouse District.

Step onto your private porch for a night of starlet gazing(Hollywood loves this off beat area), conversation, or reflection. Better yet, hit the streets and enjoy the energy of a night of entertainment visiting the equally hot and delicious famous restaurants and local watering holes.

This jewel comes with the oh so standard amenities of WiFi, two big smart TV's, cable, phone, business fax and other office accommodations.

Our home has been the host of event parties, celebrations, and those seeking to explore NOLA both for business and pleasure.

Easily accessed, private gated entrance just minutes from Louis Armstrong International airport and literally a few blocks from the Amtrack, our home offers a unique private setting unheard of in most metropolitan areas.
