About Kim Gagnon

We are avid preservationists; renovating and rehabbing New Orleans properties for 20 years. We are always looking for those homes that have fallen into disrepair, but have good bones to work with. Our joy is finding that our work has breathed new life into these homes, our neighborhood and our community.

Kim Gagnon purchased this estate in 1993

Why Kim Gagnon chose Uptown-Carrollton

This property had originally been a single family home that had been converted to a 7 unit rooming house in the 40's. A fire had put the finishing touches to it. We knew within minutes of seeing it that it could be an incredible property if restored to it's original detail. Just one in thousands of homes with beautiful architectural detail rescued in our very unique city.

What makes this estate unique

This property offers guests the opportunity to live like a native in a neighborhood that offers a slice of the true ambiance of New Orleans. With Pascal's Manale at the corner, the aroma of BBQ shrimp and the thought of a chilled oyster adds to the unforgettable Big Easy experience.

Offering guests a place to gather family and friends.

Fantastic Spot

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house to visit. We came with 10 friends for a long weekend. Everyone had privacy but we all could find many spots to sit and chat. Kim could not have been more accommodating. We were all so sad to go!! Highly recommend!!

The property was amazing. Spacious, well kept, historic and had all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Kim Gagnon’s property was amazing. Situated about 4-5 miles from French Quarter and conveniently located to so many other places: grocery store, restaurants, convenience store, coffee shops. Great neighborhood that’s quiet and safe.

Kim was amazing, professional and always available to answer any questions we had.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful and the owners are very kind and helpful! We stayed at the house for my bachelorette party and there were 15 people. There was plenty of space and rooms available. The house was very clean and overall very nice for all of us to be under the same roof. The outdoor area/ pool was also a great perk! I would highly recommend this home! Thank you again!

Amazing place to stay in New Orleans.

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group, with most of us staying in this grand house, and the rest staying at a couple of other places nearby. This house quickly became the gathering spot. It is in a wonderful quiet neighborhood, with everything you need within walking distance, or a short (15 - 20 minute) drive. The St. Charles streetcar line is four short blocks away. The patio and pool were favorites. The owner, Kim, lives next door. She s very friendly, and accommodated our needs and special requests. The descriptions and photos are honest, or maybe even understated. Everyone in our group was very happy with their bedrooms and beds. I have only positive things to say about this place. If you have a large group and want to knock their socks off, rent this house for your New Orleans trip.

Live like the locals; enjoying fine dining, great music and entertainment. Located Uptown, above the famed Garden District, this area provides the local flavor. Street fairs on Freret, oysters and BBQ shrimp at Manales, soak in the ambiance that only New Orleans can provide.
