Location, Location , Location – French Quarter 

Located on the edge of the French Quarter between Royal and Bourbon Street, residents enjoy the benefits of strolling the coveted New Orleans neighborhood while taking advantage of gated parking  and the spacious floorpan not typically available in a French Quarter residence.

Dining options within walking distance range from local burger favorite Port of Call to fine dining and New Orleans gems like Antoine’s and Galatoire’s.

Popping into Royal Street art galleries always make a rewarding Sunday outing as well.

The Story History Tells

In the 1850s, a gentleman built three houses side-by-side on Esplanade, one for each of his daughters.  723 Esplanade Avenue is straddled on either side by the other two.  All three were built in the traditional Greek Revival Townhouse style, one of the most common building types at that time.

Thanks to the contribution of artist Karen Nitz, custom hand paintings are sprinkled throughout the residence.  These include a breathtaking rendition of French painter Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec’s 1889 “La Toilette”, situated directly above the original mantle in the Grand Living room.
