The perfect blend of Creole architecture with modern design, our lovingly restored mansion sits in the heart of the historic Marigny / Bywater neighborhood... a stones throw from the French Quarter.
Welcome to our gorgeous single family home in the heart of New Orleans, in the heart of the Marigny and close to the Quarter. An award-winning 19th century masterpiece, the entire double shotgun has been converted to a spacious single-family estate and updated with the latest amenities.
"An elegant chorus of color, pattern, and texture," says the Architectural Digest photographer who recently visited our home. Here, we have blended comfort with style, showcasing items that we've collected over the past decade locally and from around the world. The decor blends mid-century modern with a good bit of antiques, as well as kitsch and various oddities.
The 3000+ sq foot home offers 4 sumptuous bedrooms (bedroom 1 with a king bed, bedroom 2 with a king bed, bedroom 3 with a queen bed, and bedroom 4 with 2 full beds), as well as a private office (fifth bedroom convert) that features two twin day beds. Two additional twin beds can be set up in the common spaces or in the bedrooms. All beds feature Tempur-pedic mattresses, down or down alternative duvets and pillows, and silky sheets. The house also has two full bathrooms and one half bathroom. One bathroom offers a ginormous 80 sq foot rain shower with multiple shower heads and a double sink vanity. The other bathroom offers a giant soaking tub, perfect for relaxing after a long day exploring the city. You will also find heaps of oversized cotton bath towels, along with a half bathroom off the living area.
The features that distinguish this property include soaring 12' ceilings, re-finished heart of pine hardwood floors, 120-year old crown moldings, original 19th century doors, Carrara marble countertops, and truly thoughtful finishes.
The common spaces provide more than ample space for well over a dozen people. The parlour is the first room on the entertaining side of the house, which leads into a 20' galley Chef's kitchen with double ovens, gas stoves, and tons of marble counterspace and cabinets; equipped with extensive Cookware and service for 24 people. There is a large Restoration Hardware dining table that can easily seat 10-12 people. Following that, there is a large family room with a ever-so-inviting custom made linen sofa, multiple arm chairs, and a 55" Smart LCD television loaded with Netflix, Hulu, etc. Adjacent is an office with daybed and accent chairs.
The outdoor porch patio and garden space suits any occasion, decorated with palm trees and other local flora. We have hosted Crawfish boils and other events with over 20 guests in this space, and it is perfect setting to relax and pass time during warm New Orleans evenings.
Other features of the property include surround-sound Sonos stereo throughout the property, blazing fast Wi-Fi, and (highly effective) central air conditioning.
We have put significant time, energy, and heart into designing the perfect space. We hope you enjoy it to the extent we do and treat it with utmost respect.
The entire property, including all indoor and outdoor spaces, is for your group's enjoyment.
