Overview

Irish Channel Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment w/ Kitchen, Open Living & Dining, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (S

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.

About Alanda Bennett

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.

Alanda Bennett purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Alanda Bennett chose Central City/Garden District

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,

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the apartment - the space, the location...everything. We've stayed in so many locations in New Orleans - all wonderful - but this was our favorite. Completely centrally located to Magazine Street with easy access to uptown as well as the quarter. The space is gorgeous. The owners were attentive and clearly put a lot into making each visit special. We visited with two small children and they were perfectly comfortable on the sofa. All in all a fabulous stay - we will be returning!

WOW!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the place!!!! Get out of the Quarter and truly experience NOLA! So close to everything in the Garden District! I loved just walking the neighborhood and seeing all the architecture in New Orleans. People love to talk to you too... Restaurants right around the corner, street car to take you anywhere. We just loved the location with FREE parking for once. :-) The house it self had everything!!! So bright and decorated great! I loved the artist shrine coming up the stairs! Huge ceilings and roomy. Comfy couch and comfy bed!!! Very comfortable and quiet. Croissants and jelly's are my weak spot for breakfast!!! What a treat... Thank You Alanda and Tom!!! We will see ya'll again!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Alana and Bob's apartment. Beautifully decorated with all their special touches, homemade croissants and jam, coffee, water, and soda provided, fresh flowers on the dining room table, chocolates in the candy jar and fully supplied with everything we needed for our stay and more.

Very close to Magazine Street where there are many restaurants and shopping. Right close to the Garden District and the wonderful old southern homes. A short walk to the St. Charles trolley which gets you to Canal Street, Bourbon Street and the French Quarter.

An all round enjoyable stay and experience in New Orleans!

Thanks Alana and Bob.

Bright Perfectly Appointed Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this lovely, roomy apartment for 4 nights during our stay in New Orleans. Beautiful place with everything one might need or want to feel comfortable and welcome. Only 2 miles to the Quarter, 4 blocks to the bus made it convenient and quiet. Lots of restaurants within easy walking distance. We'd recommend this place to anyone wanting a nice place in New Orleans away from the noise and crowds.
