About Beth Napier
We both grew up in the South and had visited New Orleans several times. When we had an opportunity to move here, we jumped at it! We love being able to amble down to the ferry and walk to Cafe' du Monde or catch a band on Frenchman's Street.
Beth Napier purchased this house in 2011
Why Beth Napier chose New Orleans
When we moved to New Orleans, we weren't quite sure where we wanted to buy a home, so we rented a house on Magazine Street and began exploring the city. We loved being so close to everything, but it was a bit busy for us. One day, we took the Algiers Ferry over to the Dry Dock Cafe' and fell in love. We can rock on the front porch under hundred-year-old oak trees and in ten minutes, be in the Quarter or the Marigny. If we want to go Uptown or to the Garden District, we just hop a streetcar. There's always a party, a parade, music, food! And, on our side of the river, the five-mile long walking and bicycle path on the top of the levee with a view of downtown is unbeatable.
What makes this house unique
I fell in love with shining hardwood floors, twelve-foot ceilings, broad crown molding and the wide-open dining-kitchen-living space downstairs. The view of the Mississippi River Bridge out the upstairs bedroom window is amazing. The back deck is very peaceful and a great place to watch fireworks from across the river!
