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. ***

About David Constance

My wife and I were born and raised in New Orleans. Although we have lived in a number of places, including Hawaii (Submarine Officer) and China, we always return to New Orleans.

I purchased this home in 1992. We recently moved to a home on a park in New Orleans to provide the children with some bike riding freedom. Vacation rentals is our way to keep this magnificent home until we are ready to move back once the children are older.

Wonderful home didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for our family gathering (8 adults & 2children, a 3 year old and 3month old) we all loved the home. Furnishings and amenities were a perfect fit inside and out plus location made it easy to go anywhere in NOLA day our night. The owners David & Billye made this an incredible experience for all . I'm feeling that this will probably become a yearly get together.

Thank you David & Billye for being such wonderful hosts

Beautiful and Spacious in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Such a pleasure to stay in a beautifully renovated historical home. With 4 adult kids/spouses, plus ourselves, it was fabulous to be able to give everyone privacy. Each bedroom was elegantly furnished with very comfortable king beds with high quality pillows and sheets allowing everyone to sleep contently. The spacious bathrooms had everything one might need. The spacious kitchen was well stocked and the large dining room was so nice. Along with the living room and parlor, there was plenty of room for us not to step on each other. The large windows brought such wonderful light into the house, all with quality shades when needed. The house has enough furnishings and decor to make it homey, without clutter. A superb balance.

David gave us extensive personal recommendations which were very helpful.

And when a bluzzard arrived in Boston and our flight got delayed, he worked out the details so we could stay an extra night.

This house is absolutely perfect for families or friends traveling together. Close enough to, and just far enough away from the French Quarter. The house made our visit to New Orleans truly splendid.

Great home and location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family & friends thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. We would rent again. Perfect for visiting with our New Orleans family as well as very comfortable for those of us who stayed. Location is perfect for access to the streetcar as well as walking down St. Charles Avenue to the local restaurants.

DELIGHTFUL

This was the perfect destination for our family reunion. The accommodations fitted our needs

perfectly. The large sitting areas were just right for our family togetherness.

The location in the garden district was convenient to restaurants and trolley.
