It is the combination of two gorgeous and separate homes that are housed in an historic Creole Cottage that was built in 1838. It has 5 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms and clocks in at a generous 3,000 square feet of luxury. The two homes are connected via a private terrace through the backyard.
Greatmen Cottage and Loft is located just five minutes from the French Quarter in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans which is a National Historic District. Food & Wine Magazine calls the Bywater 'New Orleans Hottest Neighborhood.'

Here is a detailed description of the two homes that make up this luxurious compound:
Greatmen Cottage - On the first floor, this sunny, spacious home features a large foyer, enormous living room (14 x 25), dining room (14 x 14) with French doors leading to the side yard, a huge kitchen (12 x 25) featuring a Jade range, side by side refrigerator/freezer, custom glass cabinetry, a large island with double under-mount sinks, and copper countertops. The downstairs bathroom features a large stall shower with white subway tile walls and a cascade shower head. Upstairs features three large, private bedrooms, each with a queen bed and a generous closet. There is also a large linen closet and a separate laundry closet featuring a stacked full-size front-loading washer and dryer. Upstairs also features an innovative double bathroom, which allows one person to use the toilet in private while another person uses the shower in private. The shower room features two side-by-side pedestal sinks with medicine chests. The large stall shower sports a solid glass door, marble floor and white subway tile walls. Like the downstairs shower, it features a cascade shower head.
The Loft at Greatmen Cottage - Features a grand, 32-foot long, open, loft-like Living Room-Dining Room-Island Kitchen. The living room features a comfortable sofa and two wing back chairs with two additional side chairs. There is a large coffee table and a flat screen TV. The dining room features a round table. The kitchen features marble countertops and premium stainless steel appliances. There are two very private bedrooms each with a queen bed. One bedroom is 10 x 14, the other bedroom is 11 x 12. There are two full bathrooms with pedestal sinks, medicine cabinets, and tub/showers.
This historic Creole Cottage is situated in the Bywater – the trendy, hipster neighborhood that's just five minutes downriver from the French Quarter. Artists and musicians relocated to Bywater when the French Quarter became too pricey. Now joined by professionals and young families, its high elevation has allowed it to thrive post Katrina as it never flooded. The Bywater along with neighboring Faubourg Marigny are historic districts listed on the National Register of Historic Places. They are two of the most colorful neighborhoods in New Orleans. There are many incredible restaurants, hip bars, lively pubs and art galleries scattered throughout the neighborhood.
Like Satsuma Cafe & Coffee House – it’s a favorite breakfast and lunch joint featuring some of the freshest and most innovative choices in town.
Elizabeth’s restaurant is very popular for breakfast, lunch and brunch - their praline bacon is a cross between praline candy and salty pork.
Pizza Delicious is three blocks from our house. Amazingly great pizza, voted Best in New Orleans for the past several years.
The Joint is a great BBQ restaurant on the Corner of Royal Street & Mazant Street, 7 blocks from our house, an 8 minute walk. Amazing ribs, chicken and pulled pork. Great sides. And the Peanut Butter Pie is hard to resist for dessert. Great homemade iced tea & lemonade and also a full bar. Lots of tables and a bar inside.
The Country Club (just a quick five minute walk from our house) is an elegant retreat that offers a lushly landscaped saltwater pool, a hot tub & a sauna. Plus an amazing restaurant. It’s the perfect setting for a relaxing afternoon – memorable meals, poolside cocktails, poolside dining and the friendliest staff in town.
Another popular place for dinner and music seven nights a week is Bacchanal, a funky wine shop on Poland Street. Here a cast of rotating chefs turns Bacchanal’s back courtyard into a food destination by showcasing their multicultural cooking. Guests sit at picnic tables and enjoy the great food, fine wine and top-notch live music.
Our home is 15 blocks from the French Quarter. The best way to walk it is along the new riverfront park called Crescent Park which offers a great view of the Mississippi River the whole way. There is a footbridge called the Piety Street Arch into the park three blocks from our house on the corner of Piety Street & Chartres Street. The walk to the French Quarter from our house takes 20 minutes.
In addition to the park, I also like walking to the French Quarter via the charming streets of the Bywater & Marigny. The Orientation Guide I will provide to you details my favorite walking route. It is a charming walk through an historic district with lovely homes. You will pass a restaurant or a charming shop on just about every block.
The Desire Streetcar will one day return to replace what is currently 'A Bus Named Desire' which stops near our house 15 times a day on its five minute route between the French Quarter and the Bywater. Cab fare & Uber fare between the French Quarter and Bywater runs about $7 and the trip takes less than five minutes. Very simple and very cheap. Many guests at our house like to rent bicycles at Bicycle Michael's on Frenchmen Street.
If you plan to drive your own car or rent a car, there is ample street parking in front of our house at all times for up to two cars. Uber is also readily available.
