Historic Victorian shotgun camelback. Recently renovated. Perfect for family or a couples getaway. Ideally located 1 & 1/2 blocks from the Garden District streetcar stop. Central location, great walk-ability. Spacious, comfortable & charming.
Our home is a Victorian shotgun camelback double built in 1861. Somewhere down the line it was converted into a 4-plex but it still retains many of the architectural flourishes that make New Orleans homes so charming. This apartment is approximately 1000 sq ft and can comfortably sleep up to 6 people. The neighborhood is very walk-able and we're just over a block from the main Garden District streetcar stop.
The apartment is 3 stories. There is a private entrance for you and the members of your party. For outdoor space you have a courtyard and a second floor balcony. The kitchen is stocked with dishes and cooking implements. There is 1 full bath on the second floor and a half bath on the ground floor. There are two bedrooms, one on the second floor and one on the third, and 2 separate sitting rooms. There is a comfortable full size sofa bed in the second floor sitting room and another full size sofa bed in the ground floor sitting room. Linens and towels are provided. There is a washer and dryer on the premises, shared between three rental units.
Just a note for those with mobility issues: The apt is 3 stories high so there are a lot of stairs. There are 5 stairs at the entrance to the apartment. We have 12 ft ceilings so the flight of stairs to get to the 2nd floor, where the full bath is located, is longer than what is normal in most homes. Lastly, there is a flight of stairs to get to the 3rd floor bedroom. Unfortunately our home is not suitable for people with limited mobility.
Interaction with guests
The apartment is completely private. My husband and I live in another unit in the building and either he or I will meet you at check in to show you around the property. We are also available (when not at work) to answer questions and give recommendations.
