Secreted a block from the boisterous hordes of Frenchmen Street, this stately edifice hides unexpected elegance and serenity. What appears to be a private home is a bed-and-breakfast with two drop-dead stunning suites and a fabulous swimming pool that might tempt you away from the nearby clubs. Those suites, done up in whites and creams, take full advantage of the home’s original architecture: soaring ceilings, crown moldings, fireplaces (nonworking), and huge windows. Upstairs rooms in the main house are pretty in a lesser way; the carriage-house rooms are just ordinary. Continental breakfast is in a communal indoor/outdoor kitchen in the expansive backyard, where kitties lounge in the sun and orange trees provide fresh juice, when in season. Hospitality is more sufficient than solicitous, but architecture buffs will enjoy the owner’s insights.
