Overview

Photos and Description of the Touro vacation estate rental

Exquisite Manse Steps from World Class Dining

New regulations will allow whole house rental beginning April 1. There is a limited supply of 90 whole-house rental days per year, so please ask about lower rates if resident owner remains on property. ***THIS PROPERTY IS NOT AN EVENT RENTAL, STRICTLY ENFORCED***

The 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, 8,000 square foot estate is located on a 1/2 acre of manicured gardens. The property includes 2 kitchens, a grand dining hall, a billiard room, a conservatory, a library, a weight room, home cinema and more with plenty of room for larger parties to spread out. Enjoy the graciousness of a Southern mansion, while still being only steps from World Class Dining, e.g. Lilette, Cavan, Le Petite Grocery and other must-stops for Foodies.

The property is adjacent to Magazine Street and the historic St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, less than 3 miles from the French Quarter, Superdome, Canal Street and downtown.

The original site of the manor house of a large plantation that stretched to the river, it is a Registered National Historic Landmark and a winner of the New Orleans Landmarks Association's Special Honor Award

The three-story, Italianate raised villa boasts a luxurious master suite on the top floor including a king size bed, a queen-size pull-out sofa-bed, en-suite jacuzzi tub, separate shower, steam room, private toilet and bidet. The main floor includes a chef's kitchen and dining area, a library whose Chesterfield, pull-out couch allows it function as a secondary master bedroom, with en suite bathroom, billiard room, conservatory with 1/2 bath, and a magnificent grand dining hall that seats up to 24. The bottom floor, features three bedrooms and three bathrooms with a very large kitchen, dining area, laundry room, home gym, home cinema (with pull out couch) and living room. All bedrooms on the ground floor have en suite bathrooms with full baths and showers, jacuzzi tub and classic claw-foot tub.

From the large, front porch to the lushly landscaped gardens, water features, and expansive lawns the grounds have the feel of an aristocrat's country estate. There is also gated off-street parking for up to four cars, open air, with remote entrance.

This is a quiet residential area and respect for the neighbors is at a premium. Given the size of the property, fronting a full city block, and its distance from the street, one need only observe basic common sense not to disturb neighbors. There are absolutely no events allowed. The property is not zoned for event rentals, and due to past issues, owner will enforce this prohibition strictly, and have any unauthorized event shut down.
