Great location Uptown 4 blocks from St. Charles streetcar and vibrant up-and-coming Freret Street. Plenty to see, do, and eat within walking distance! Please inquire about additional rooms for larger parties.
Owner and artist occupied, this stylish Victorian shotgun has been featured on design blogs, in creative photo shoots and advertising campaigns, and is currently showcased in the recently released gorgeous interiors book “House Proud:Unique Home Design, Louisiana” by Valorie Hart.
Central location and quiet Uptown neighborhood provide the perfect base for exploring New Orleans. All major sites within 5 to 15 minutes traffic permitting.
Guest quarters are located in a separate building behind the house accessed by a private entrance through shaded gardens. This former painting studio was lovingly restored into a stylish pied-à-terre with a cozy queen bed in the sleeping loft overlooking the spacious living space below.
With a new and very comfortable queen sleeper, up to 4 people can be accommodated. The galley style kitchen provides plenty of room for cooking, and the extendable dining table is the perfect spot for morning coffee or setting up a place to work.
The washer and dryer are located in the bathroom which has a generously sized shower with seats, and a door that leads to the shared back patio by the pool.
Lush gardens and ample yard space ensure privacy for both guests and owner alike. With a private entrance and dedicated guest patio by the pool you'll feel like you have the whole place to yourselves.
The outdoor gardens and private patio provide the perfect space to entertain small parties while enjoying the rustle of Giant Timber bamboo as it sways with the wind.
For nature enthusiasts, the local wildlife has found a home or temporary perch in the diverse array of plants and trees of the surrounding gardens. You very well may see butterflies, cicadas, geckos, frogs, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, cardinals, jays, red tailed hawks, gulls and the city’s chatty parrots who nest in the neighborhood.
The guest patio provides ample room for guests to spread out and relax with seating for 4-6 at a dining table, and another conversational seating area accommodating 5-6. Cooking out is easy on the gas grill and outdoor dining accessories like food tents and melamine plates are provided as well. Seasonal herbs such as rosemary, mint, oregano, and basil are typically available in the old sink planter by the apartment door to add fresh flavors to both food and drink. When in season, Meyer lemons, Kumquats and Blood oranges abound and will be made available in fruit baskets by the herbs.
Off the back patio through a gated entrance is the shared pool with the owner. Recently added, the pool is a gorgeous 50 foot stretch of gentle mineral waters, the latest in pool chemical technologies. Pool hours will vary according to season and owner’s schedule, but usually will be available from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Please inquire if you have a party larger than 4. There may be space available in the main house.
I have been living in New Orleans since '98 and can't imagine calling another place home. I love to travel, but the best part of that is knowing I am coming back here. I work as an artist, designer, and avid gardener. I consider my home and gardens one of my best works yet...enjoy!
This location not only provides easy access to all points of interest in town, but also a calm oasis for when you just want to kick back and relax.
The lush gardens and ample yard space ensure privacy for both guests and owner. Separate garden entrance and dedicated guest patio in the very back of the property ensure you'll feel like you have the place to yourselves.
A former painting studio converted into a loft apartment in 2009, this unit remains airy and bright. The modern update extends to the decor which is both fresh and colorful. Separate building ensures maximum privacy, while shared guest patio next to the 1952 Routemaster Bus from Bristol, England by the pool offers ample space to make a spot of your own.
