Walking distance to Frenchman Street, the French Quarter, Riverfront streetcar, French Market and more, you’ll love our home due to its location and charm. Located in Fabourg Marigny, a historic district with a bohemian vibe, it's just steps away from the food, drink, shops, parks, and festivals that make up New Orleans. Half of a double shotgun home (similar to a duplex), this space is well suited for solo travelers and couples as well. Please note that the sleeping space is a heated waterbed.
This house is an historic double shotgun. Essentially, the house is a duplex. You have one whole side to your self, and we live on the other side. There are no shared spaces, but you may hear us (muffled voices, footsteps) on the other side, though we are always respectful and try to be as quiet as possible. The door from the street opens into the living room, which leads through French doors to the bedroom. Although we have always said in our description that we have a waterbed, a couple of guests expressed surprise at this upon arrival. So please note that the bed is a heated waterbed and it's the only sleeping space. Behind that is the kitchen, with the bathroom located at the far end of the house. A shotgun house is a French Creole architecture with all rooms in a straight line and no hallways. The French adopted this style to conserve living space. This cottage has a brick front wall and a unique construction from a simpler time. The bricks are the same as those used to build theFrench Quarter buildings and were later covered with "stucco" to fortify the structure.
I’m not sure of the exact age of the house, but it’s over 100 years old. The years have added quirks along the way that we feel make the house charmingly unique! It’s settled a bit over the years, meaning things aren’t exactly straight or plumb or perfect, but that only adds to the character of the place. This is an authentic New Orleans home, and though it might not be the most opulent or luxurious digs, it is full of history and memories, a strand in the web of this great city!
We recently adopted (or maybe it was the other way around) a neighborhood cat. She will not be in your space, but is on the other side of a door, just FYI if you are allergic to kitties.
You will have an entire side of this "shotgun" (duplex-style) home. The living room features a pub table and glass barware (including an absinthe fountain!) in case you care to indulge at home before heading out on the town. The bedroom has an awesome queen-sized heated waterbed (please note that the only sleeping space is a waterbed) and an armoire with hangers to keep your duds looking spiffy. There is a television with local channels. The kitchen has an electric stove, microwave, coffee maker, and dishwasher for your use. There’s also a stacked washer and dryer. The bathroom has a tub and shower. There is a small yard, but because we share it with a neighbor, we aren’t offering it as part of the listing. However, there are plenty of coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance where you can sit and enjoy the outdoors if you are so inclined.
