This recently renovated 2700 sq ft. Camelback Shotgun is an unusual out of the box Bywater Casa for the discerning Artist/Musician/film crew in residence, or short or long term travelers.
Meticulously designed by the owner/designer with 5 batches of reclaimed wood from various Louisiana locations: Lafayette, Covington, New Orleans and Natchez Mississippi as well 1600' of pine from the Hosier state of Indiana. This is a real living residence and not your typical Nola vacation rental property.
Greenhouse features a generous entry foyer, music parlor complete with Yamaha upright piano, Danelectro and Acoustic vintage amps, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large open kitchen/grand room 800 sq ft. with 12' farm table, Verona Italian cook stove, 9' maple top island with complete pantry. The big kitchen room has 2 doors opening onto the 26' x 8' covered porch looking on to the west facing bucolic garden adorned with 6000 aged St Joe bricks and splendid church steeple views of the Marigny beyond. The kitchen space and music parlor can be made into one big space by opening up the 5' sliding barn door.
Designed with 1920's thru 50's Holophane, Dazor, Mg Wheeler and Benjamin lights, Emeco and Steelcase tanker chairs and Toledo, Lyon stools, this house is a throwback to the early days of ole American living. One of the best features of Greenhouse NOLA are it's vintage Philco, Zenith,Telefunken and Normande tube radios always tuned to the best of Nola's superb radio stations. There is a radio in each bedroom and in the kitchen. The House of Green comes with various books and music libraries, original artworks, and a 4 zone sound system with B&W speakers. Greenhouse's interior sheds character and charm from its carefully crafted reclaimed walls, use of vintage lighting, foundry molds and Americana artifacts throughout. There is also a sumptuous 600 CD archive of Jamaican, Brazilian, Latin, Indie, and assorted folk, blues, R&B, Jazz and Roots CD's.
This 9th Ward house is in proximity to St Roch, Crescent Park, The Marigny, Treme and The Quarter. The Bywater is infamously known for it's dive bars: Vaughn's, J&J's, BJ's, Markey's, and Bud Rips. Bacchinal and Mimi's are also close by. Greenhouse's "nom de rue" is mentioned in the 6th verse of Bob Dylan's "Tangled up in blue", and for those who are inclined to hear real good Live Music and don't want to just go to Frenchman Street, there's a large house list of the best music clubs in Nola and many recommended restaurants as well. This house uses energy efficient gas appliances, gas direct hot water heaters, mostly 60 watt bulbs or less, all dimmable and encourages a low carbon footprint for all users. Greenhouse caters to respectful Artists and parties and is geared to longer short term visits. There is an active train line that runs through the Bywater and Marigny neighborhoods. It's a great house and we wanna keep it that way. The pixs above should give ya a good vibe of what the house is all about, better pictures than words. Cheers and looking forward to seeing you soon.
The entire house including Great Room (Kitchen/Dining), 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, Music Parlor, Media Room, Courtyard and Laundry are available to all renters of the Greenhouse.
