Steps from Bayou St. John, Esplanade Ave, a variety of restaurants, grocery stores, and shops is this immaculately restored, historic, double gallery, 1906 Edwardian-style home. The large, inviting porch welcomes you with its classic columns and newly-installed railings. As you enter the home, you will notice the exquisite, hand-carved, French marble mantel from the 1830s decorated with beautiful plaster cornices and medallions with vintage sconces and lighting throughout the home. There are multiple living areas to enjoy with a large family room and separate dining room. The unique powder room downstairs is something to see! Up the stairs are mirroring sets of ornate staircases with four spacious bedrooms with large closets and three full baths, featuring 1 fabulous “slipper tub” and 1 original cast iron brass clawfoot tub. Two front bedrooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows with access to the front balcony. The primary bedroom also has outdoor access overlooking the backyard. Downstairs, a beautiful kitchen opens onto the large back porch and inviting yard, where Spanish tiles still lie that were brought to New Orleans during Spanish rule. The timber framed backyard BBQ “Smokehouse” has a central air vent for smoke to rise up and out. Beneath the covered back patio is a bonus space used previously as an office and musician’s recording space. The alarm system includes four cameras and AC with HEPA filters. This spacious home was made for entertaining family and friends! Listen to Jazz Fest from the back porch, walk your canoe to Bayou Boogaloo, head to the Fairgrounds for Exotic Racing Day, stroll to the Lafitte Greenway for farmers and arts markets, bike to the Mississippi River down Esplanade or to Lake Pontchartrain down Wisner, or have the next Halloween gathering during the neighborhood’s cherished block party. Enjoy all the city has to offer from your new, historic New Orleans home and its perfect location!
