About the property

Greek Revival Home, Interesting Neighborhood, 1 Block To The Streetcar System

Classic Garden District Greek Revival home built in 1898, The Byrnes House has all the classical architectural details - fluted Doric Columns in a double gallery, Grape leaf and bow frieze, small pediment, triglyph entablature with large dental molding. Inside are 13 ft ceilings, huge windows, plaster medallions, giant pocket doors, etc.; renovated and updated with all modern conveniences.

In addition to the great architecture, the location simply cannot be beat. The Utne Reader listed the Lower Garden District #1 on their list of the Hippest neighborhoods in the US. Surrounded by restaurants, bars, antique stores, and unique shops, you will find this to be a most interesting neighborhood. PLUS, one block to the Saint Charles Ave streetcar, and you are a short ride to the Warehouse District, French Quarter, Canal Street, the River Walk, Mid-City, City Park, Museums, Universities, Audubon Park - everything great about New Orleans. Oh yeah, did I mention that the Mardi Gras parades pass one block away on St. Charles Ave.?

This historic building was home to 3 generations of accomplished men of the Byrnes family. Col. William H. Byrnes was born in Ireland in the year 1845. He came with his parents to America when a boy, and ultimately ascended to the presidency of the Hibernia Fire Insurance Co. Five successive governors of the state of Louisiana gave him the rank of Colonel on their military staffs. William H. Byrnes, Jr., was a Louisiana Senator who introduced legislation establishing Loyola University of New Orleans. William H. Byrnes, III, was the Chief Judge of the Louisiana 4th Circuit Court of Appeal.

***Note: Access to Bedroom #4 is through Bathroom #3 and up a set of narrow stairs. It may not be appropriate for the elderly, infirm, or toddlers. However, it is great for a gaggle of kids, or anyone else who wants a quiet, isolated space. ***

*** Rented only through VRBO/Homeaway family of web sites (NOT through Craigslist***
