Touro Estate Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 4.5 baths, 2 kitchens, grand dining hall, billiard room


We are taking any new reservations at the present time.

4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 2 kitchens, grand dining hall, billiard room, conservatory, and more on 1/2 acre uptown.

This lovely 3 story, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom estate is located in a great part of the Uptown neighborhood just 3 blocks from the Garden District. The Estate is nestled in a wonderful area that is centrally located and is easily accessible to public transportation. The property is 1 block off Magazine Street and 3 blocks from historic St. Charles Avenue and the streetcar line. The property is a quick 3 miles from the French Quarter-Superdome area, Canal Street, and downtown. The 8,000 square foot house (7,000, living space) is on a 1/2 acre of manicured lawns and gardens.

Please note for security reasons we no longer communicate via emails except through the VRBO/Homeaway Site or accept payments except through the VRBO/Homeaway portal.

The original site of the manor house of a large plantation that stretched to the river, it is a Registered National Historic Landmark. Construction on the current home began in 1859. The Civil War interrupted construction. The owner was bankrupt by the end of the war and sold the house to another party, who completed construction in 1865. That owner also over-speculated, and in the 1870s sold the home to the City of New Orleans as a refuge for widows and orphans. During this time, the house was used as an asylum and remained in that capacity for the next 100 years. The house was turned back into a private residence in 1973, and has remained privately owned since. It is a previous winner of the Special Honor Award by the New Orleans Landmarks Association.

The home is a great example of an Italianate raised villa. The home is 3 stories with a luxurious master suite on the top floor including several sitting areas and a large master ensuite bath with a jacuzzi tub and separate shower and steam room. The main floor includes a chef's kitchen with an intimate kitchen dining area for 6, another master bed and bath suite (and library), billiard room, music room, 1.5 baths and a magnificent grand dining hall that seats 22 to 24 comfortably. The bottom floor, features two bedrooms and two bathrooms with a very large kitchen, dining area, laundry room and living room. . Both bedrooms on the ground floor have in suite bathrooms with full baths and showers, one with jacuzzi tub.

The estate includes use of 2 outdoor courtyards where you can unwind and enjoy the beautifully manicured grounds and fountains. We offer gated off street parking for up to four cars, open air, with remote entrance. The entire house rents for a minimum rate of $925 per night, with minimum nightly stays and rates varying based on season (for instance Mardi Gras is $1500 per night, 5 night minimum). Discounts are available for weekly and monthly rentals.

This is a quiet residential area and respect for the neighbors is at a premium.

Amazing property with beautiful architecture

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our wedding party for a week. It was large enough so that nobody felt cramped and had plenty of bathrooms for 18 people to shower. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Live like a Southern Bell or Gentleman!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful Antebellum home will take you back in time. Eat in the grand dining room/ballroom at an antique table that seats over 20, play pool and have a bourbon in the billiards room or walk through the floor to ceiling windows that open to the porch to check out the gardens, you get to live like the old Southern rich use to live. At least for the weekend. Then retire to the master bedroom which takes up the entire 3rd floor and enjoy the jacuzzi tub.

We enjoyed everything about our stay, and the owner and property manager were so helpful. Best weekend in New Orleans, ever!

Very Nice and Spacious

  • 4 of 5

It was a wonderful stay. We rented this for the entire bridal party for my daughter's wedding. Everyone who stayed there was thrilled with the property, the location as well as the sleeping arrangements.

The owner stopped by as well and visited with them to make sure everything was going well. Highly recommend the property.

We loved our stay at the house! It is located in an awesome location and the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. The beds are comfortable, clean linen and towels, and the house is huge. The front porch garden area wonderful sitting areas. HOWEVER, the house was not clean to my standards and 2/4 bathroom showers were not working or draining properly. The lighting in the bathrooms either were broke or you could not see to put on your makeup. The stairs and areas were not vacuumed. I would rent again, but those items need to be looked at... clean and working plumbing is important to me! Love NOLA

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

This property was the ideal location for our small wedding. We had several friends stay at the villa with us. The house had everything we needed and was able to comfortably accommodate our group. The kitchen was huge. The patios were lovely and lush. The location was close to several great shops and restaurants. The host was incredibly responsive. We hope to stay here again for our anniversary!
