Enjoy New Orleans From Local Perspective. Historic 2 Bedroom - Renovated 2016!
About Anne Beck
I am a local real estate broker, and my specialty is furnished housing and sales in downtown New Orleans. My husband, Bobby, is a craftsman who loves historic homes, and we have renovated three beautiful properties, which we love to share with our guests. Nothing is more fun than taking an old, unloved New Orleans home and bringing the energy and life back into its bones. It's our passion to keep the best, historic features while infusing modern comforts and styles into the tapestry of each new project. We hope you will feel the creative energy put into this Uptown gem throughout your stay.
Anne Beck purchased this Townhome in 2015
Why Anne Beck chose Carrollton
New Orleans is a special city - full of characters and imagination. Our neighborhoods are honored as the backbone of the city, and Uptown is as local as it gets. Enjoy New Orleans as the locals do - walk through the neighborhood, catch the street car to any destination in the city, and visit on the front porch with the neighbors. Party in the French Quarter, and recover in this cozy home-away-from-home in the Uptown/Carrollton area.
What makes this Townhome unique
Just three blocks from Carrollton station where the street car starts (or ends, depending on your plans for the day). Palmer Park is around the corner, and you can enjoy the warm weather, do a little running, or browse the art displays on the third Saturday of each month. Oak Street and Maple Street bars and restaurants are a quick street car hop away, and you can walk to Robert's Market and Walgreens for all your essentials.

True New Orleans
Property is quite new, and exactly as described. Comfortable beds, large rooms particularly for New Orleans, well equipped. The second bedroom (there with the twig wall) isn't closed off, which is common in shotguns and was no problem for us.
Owners were very responsive. We couldn't figure out how to use the shower and we texted fairly late at night and got an immediate response. (Pull down on what you might think was just the aerator on the tub spout.)
Walgreens and supermarket just across the street. Easy walk to street car. We'd definitely stay again.
Just remodeled in 2016, everything is brand-new. Stainless appliances and all new custom kitchen... all beautifully designed without changing the New Orleans charm of this 1920s raised basement double. The décor is vintage industrial with serene, sophisticated colors and furnishings.
Your stay will be in the upper left unit. You have your own front porch and a parking spot in the driveway. It's super-easy to get around town from here. Just hop a city bus at the corner, or stroll three blocks to the Carrollton Station of the streetcar line. The streetcar can take you all the way from Uptown into the French Quarter and soon, even into the St. Claude shops and neighborhoods.
No need to cook, either. Plenty of restaurants, deliveries, and Robert's Market has amazing prepared foods from their deli, just one block away.
Interaction with Guests
We live just a mile away and are available to help you during your stay. Late check-in is fine, and the owners are also available by cell phone any time.
Uptown/Carrollton is true New Orleans; not just a party, but a gathering of neighbors who truly love their city. You never know when there will be an event, a parade, a special celebration nearby... and this neighborhood is an authentic experience of being a resident of the city. Visit many local restaurants and bars on Oak and Maple Streets - just a quick ride on the street car - or use your base as a place to unwind before joining the party in the French Quarter or Warehouse District.
The bus stop is literally one house away. From the front steps, walk 1/2 block to Claiborne Ave. Turn right on Claiborne and walk just three blocks to the Carrollton Station of the street car line. It's the "end of the line," or the "beginning of the line" on the streetcar route throughout the city.
Uber and taxis are plentiful... it's easiest to leave your car in the driveway and avoid those parking tickets!
Other Things to Note:
Palmer Park is just three blocks away, providing outdoor space for jogging, playground for kids, and a beautiful green space in the midst of the city. On the third Saturday and Sunday of each month, Palmer Park hosts art festivals with local artists displaying their wares and lots of shopping opportunities for souvenir hunters and collectors.
This is a cozy neighborhood - it's real New Orleans, with friendly neighbors and urban atmosphere, but it's not the place for a keg on the porch and a lawn chair on the roof. Be respectful of neighbors. Be friendly and enjoy a true local experience - just like you live here!
