The house is right on first street, an easy walk from the St. Charles streetcars. It's lovely, like many others in the area, and sits across the street from the Carroll house where a dog plays fetch with all the passerbys. The garden district and this house are enchanting and worth a quiet southern stroll as part of your NoLa... More

This house is now known as the Brevard-Rice House, as noted on the plaque in front of the house. If you are doing a self-guided walking tour of the Garden District, make sure to swing by this home, especially if you are a fan of Anne Rice. You will only be able to view the house from the street. It's... More

The house is stunning in itself and if you are a fan of Anne Rice and her Lives of the Mayfair Witches trilogy, being able to see the property is momentous and breathtaking. Its in the beautiful and historic garden district so its a great walk. I suggest stopping in front of the house for a couple moments just to... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
