Overview

About the property

Historic New Orleans Mansion - 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 10

One of the largest private mansions in New Orleans at 7000+ square feet, our tastefully renovated Southern estate was constructed in 1851 and sits on acres of manicured land that stretch from Esplanade Avenue to Kerlerec Street. Original art by notable local artists such as George Dureau sit side-by-side with modern amenities in this gorgeously appointed living space. Perfect for large groups, families, and companies coming to town on vacation seeking first-class Nola accommodations.

The mansion is split into two, completely private sides. This listing is for the front half of the estate.

Location:

Located on safe, tree-lined Esplanade Avenue in the lower Treme, we are in the middle of one of the most joyful, lively, and vibrant neighborhoods of New Orleans, home to an incredible underground live jazz scene and regular second line parades (which are fun to watch from the private 2nd floor balcony!). Our home is just a short walk to the French Quarter and the Marigny/Frenchmen Street. We are also a few blocks away from the North Rampart streetcar line.

The best way to get around is by foot, bike, taxi, or Uber/Lyft. For cycling enthusiasts, New Orleans is an eminently bikeable city, and there are several rental and tour companies in close proximity (we especially recommend Bicycle Michael’s on Frenchmen Street). The Quarter and Marigny are both within walking distance, and other hotspots such as the Bywater neighborhood and Magazine Street are a short cab ride away. We are a 25 minute drive from the airport.

- Great location -- located on leafy Esplanade Avenue, just a stone's throw from the French Quarter.

- Renovated chef's kitchen is fully stocked with essential cookware, and features an adorable retro oven.

- Spacious interior designed for large groups to come together.

- Free off-street parking.

Guest access

The front half of this mansion is sealed off from the second half for privacy. The entire front half of the mansion is for your exclusive enjoyment. In addition to the indoor spaces, guests may enjoy the expansive, manicured grounds of the estate. Please note that if you are renting half of the mansion, the outdoor spaces can be accessed by the group that is renting the other half.

Interaction with guests

You will have complete privacy here. Every question you ask or concern you may have before or during your stay will be promptly addressed via messenger or phone. Entry is keyless, meaning there’s no need to coordinate key pick up.

Would recommend to anyone

  • 5 of 5

Our family was visiting New Orleans for the first time and loved loved loved the property. Despite being one of the most luxurious properties I've ever stayed in (chandeliers, marble tub, tall ceilings) it was also a very practical home for our family. The house was close to the French Quarter and a lot of the festivities while still being in a quiet and safe neighborhood. The kitchen not only had beautiful light but was fully stocked and large. However, most importantly Frank was a very attentive and helpful host who made sure we had everything we needed and that all of our questions were asked. Thank you so much, this home will always hold a special place in our heart!

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

I've seen "mansion" thrown around on AirBNB and VRBO properties but this place lives up to the name! The interior design is beyond grand, from the artwork to hand selected antique pieces. The home was also very clean and Frank was thoughtful enough to leave refreshments and stock piles of clean towels and linens. My family is full of complainers and to my shock everyone had nothing but compliments and nobody wanted to leave. Overall an incredible experience and we would absolutely recommend!!!
