This condominium listing is perfect for someone not only looking to live in one of the older neighborhoods in the city, but who also doesn’t want the maintenance or cost of a single-family home.
“These are five luxury, top-quality new construction condos located in the heart of the historic Marigny Triangle,” said Aaron Dare, the listing agent with Tommy Crane Real Estate, “near the music and entertainment of Frenchmen Street and all that the world-famous French Quarter has to offer.”
The condos are very spacious, with all-white walls, a perfect backdrop for your art work, refinished floors and ceiling fans.
“This Koch and Wilson Architects-designed new development embraces the unique historic architecture of the Marigny neighborhood while providing modern finishes, low maintenance, and energy efficient living,” said Dare. “This condo association is both Airbnb and pet-friendly.”
Their kitchens have an eat-on bar that seats three, all stainless steel appliances and plenty of storage and light.
“Units one, two and three are two-story units, each having two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, an open living and dining room plan and a kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a walk-in pantry with stackable washer/dryer connections and under-cabinet lighting.”
Dare added that both upper bedrooms have en suite bathrooms with marble and stone tiled floors and tub surrounds, as well as custom vanities with marble and granite counter tops.
“Special features include three-piece crown molding, stained concrete on the first floor, reclaimed heart of pine three fourth inch-thick wood floors upstairs, ten-foot ceilings upstairs and downstairs, double insulated wood windows and eight-foot solid-core doors throughout,” said Dare.
He added that the condos also have French doors, historic hardware, an interior fire suppression sprinkler system, attic access for additional storage, a balcony, and a brick courtyard.
“A lovely shared brick-lined patio and bricked wall offer an inviting entry to the condos on the Touro Street side,” said Dare. “A second gated entrance is on the Burgundy side as well, providing a secluded living environment plus all units are pre-wired for audio and alarm.”
Faubourg Marigny was laid out in the first decade of the 19th century by Creole real estate developer and politician Bernard de Marigny, on land that had been his family's plantation just downriver from the old city limits of New Orleans.
The portion of Faubourg Marigny closer to the river was built up first; the area on the side of St. Claude Avenue (formerly "Goodchildren Street") away from the river was sometimes called New Marigny. In the early 19th century, New Marigny was where white Creole gentlemen set up households for their mistresses of color (and their offspring) in the tradition of plaçage.
Wide Elysian Fields Avenue, named after the Champs-Élysées in Paris, was designed to be the main street of the Faubourg. It was the first street in the New Orleans area to extend directly from the riverfront to Lake Pontchartrain. In 1830-31 the Pontchartrain Railroad was built, with its tracks down the center of Elysian Fields.
Frenchmen Street developed one of the city's premier locations for live music venues and restaurants and is a destination for music devotees. The neighborhood is also home to the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts riverfront facility.
Faubourg Marigny is one of the city's most colorful neighborhoods; the architecture borrows heavily from the colonial French and Spanish and has elements of the Caribbean. This blending of cultures over time has resulted in a unique architectural style. Marigny is one of the centers for homegrown New Orleans Mardi Gras.
