The area
Neighborhood: 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.

The Walter Grinnan Robinson House is one of the most beautiful residences in New Orleans. Located at 1415 Third Street in the exclusive Garden District, the genteel two-story mansion with a unique curved portico and wraparound galleries was completed in 1867 by New Orleans' most famous architect, Henry Howard, for Robinson, a cotton and tobacco merchant from Lynchburg, Virginia, who bought the corner lot in 1857. One of the largest houses in the Garden District, the Italian-style villa covers 10,516 square feet. The mansion, which includes seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a lavish ballroom, elevator and grand center staircase, and its adjacent servant quarters, stable and 1,500-square-foot, two bedroom, two bathroom carriage house have recently undergone renovation. The galleries are supported by Doric columns on the first floor and Corinthian columns on the second floor. The entire complex has been up for sale since 2013 and the current asking price is $9.5 million. That includes all the perks, including moldings with gold leaf, marble mantels, custom designed rugs, ceiling murals and spacious grounds with a swimming pool. Did I mention that the Robinson House was one of the first in New Orleans to have indoor plumbing?

Found this house while doing a self guided walking tour through the garden district with a map that was given to me by my server at the Commander’s Palace. Nice looking house, can’t go in.

Walking through the heart of the Garden District this is one of many beautiful historic homes. Only viewed from street as it is a private residence.
