Originally built in the 1800s, 210 Olivier Street was first occupied by Algiers families in the shipbuilding and ship repair industries. The original facade and exterior have been fully restored, including an original barge board back-house with authentic out-house doors. A stunning residence, it will make a beautiful next home. There’s the additional option of continuing to run the existing bed & breakfast because the B&B license is included in the sale if you like.
A knock out for entertaining, this home has hosted many salon parties for 75 neighbors and a full band. Operating as La Maison de la Musique, the bed & breakfast is licensed by the city of New Orleans. It offers a 2-room suite with a private exterior entrance, interior access to the main house, a mini kitchen with microwave/convection oven, mini-fridge, large closet space, and an en-suite private bath. The income potential is significant, depending on the number of days you’d like to host guests.
The living room/music salon features a large, traditional Maria Theresa chandelier with medallion, crown molding plus picture molding, original (and functional!) pocket doors, wood floors, and 12-foot ceilings. All of this is crowned with custom window valences and silk draperies.
The kitchen is a masterpiece. Spectacularly remodeled in 2014, the design maintains the historic New Orleans “back of the house” kitchen location. Original bead boards, huge crown molding, and quartz countertops are just the beginning. There are solid wood cabinets with soft closures and dentil moldings. Antique wave glass accents many of the cabinet fronts, adding that touch of luxury one would expect.
Storage abounds, with a walk-in pantry, pan drawers, pull out cabinet shelves, and those little extras like paper towel and soap storage pull-outs and wine storage space. The oversized double sink sits in the quartz-topped island. Finishes include window seats and matching custom draperies. Modern touches include USB outlets plus a built-in office desk with custom, solid wood file storage.
Additional storage can be found in the on-site laundry area.
The dining room shines, with wood floors, a chandelier, crown molding, pocket doors, and 12-foot ceilings. Open to the living room, the flow for entertaining is marvelous.
An entertainment room offers a built-in entertainment center for TV and sound systems, bookshelves, and retro LP storage. Lit by yet another chandelier, it also has crown molding, window valences, and lace draperies.
Then there’s the master bedroom with an en suite, private bathroom that’s not to be missed. Elegant vanity installation with double sinks, claw foot tub, shower stall, and an oversized walk-in closet combine to give you a retreat from being a New Orleans B&B owner, reclaiming your personal time in a setting designed for tranquility.
Fully landscaped lot with mature plantings, raised beds, hanging baskets, and automatic sprinkler systems in both the front and back yards. Automatic exterior lighting timers for decorating front fence and doors. There’s no grass to mow because the property is fully gardened including the neutral ground. Live oak, pin oak, sweet olives, camellia sasanqua, boxwoods, an olive tree bearing fruit, gardenias, bay leaf tree, snowball bushes, iris, azalea, bird of paradise, herb gardens, and so much more. An outdoor sink makes potting and planting so easy.
There’s absolutely no better place to unwind than the dazzling, covered back porch. Traditional Haint Blue ceilings with outdoor fans provide an unparalleled opportunity for relaxation and enjoying the outdoors.
