Welcome to 2335 Oleander Street, a stately Colonial revival home on the National Register for Historic Places in the heart of the Garden District. Walking up to this beautifully restored, two-story home with brick and stucco façade, located on a double lot, notice the lovely landscaping, the porte-cochere to the left, working shutters at each second-floor window, and recently replaced roof (2019). As you pass through the imposing front door, you enter a grand foyer. Proceed left into a sizeable, formal living room centered on a fireplace with marble surround and outsized mantel, original French doors, and four built-in bookshelves enclosed with leaded-glass doors. To the foyer’s right, enter into the large formal dining room, with plenty of natural light streaming in. Adjoining the dining room is a cozy sunroom, with floor to ceiling windows along two walls, and serves as a great place to gather and relax throughout the year. The recently renovated kitchen (2019) with original butler’s pantry, built-in breakfast nook, and custom cabinetry is accessed through swinging door from the dining room. First-floor laundry room/pantry is off the kitchen. And back at the foyer, you ascend a magnificent stairway that climbs to a landing with three beautiful leaded glass windows, before reaching the second floor. Recently refinished (2019) oak hardwood floors are throughout the first and second floors. Original ornate crown molding and substantial baseboards frame the plaster ceilings, walls, and floors of every room in this house. On the second floor, you come to a landing with built-in bookshelves and doors leading to three bedrooms and one bathroom. To the right is the original master bedroom spanning the length of the house, with decorative coal fireplace, two closets, and a pocket door connecting to a bathroom with original mosaic and subway tiles, tub, pedestal sink, commode, and vanity. To the left of the landing are two bedrooms. The one facing the front of the house has built-in bookshelves and cabinets, and a closet. The other bedroom currently serves as the master. This second master bedroom, facing the back of the property, has a large walk-in closet with original built-ins, and hallway leading to a master bathroom with original subway and hexagonal tile, tub, sink, commode, and build-in cabinets. As you descend the stairway, back to the first floor, proceed from the foyer down the hallway, toward the back door with original, amber glass window. Notice the novel half-bath tucked under the stairway, before you exit the back door. This door opens onto an oasis in the city, with beautifully landscaped backyard and spacious brick patio, all enclosed by a 7-foot brick fence. From the shady brick patio, you proceed down a brick walkway to a recently renovated guest house, entered through beautiful French doors, with expansive living space, plastered walls and built-in shelves and cabinets, with a cork floor. The bathroom with ceramic tiles, original wainscoting and appropriate fixtures and shower completes the living space in the guest house. All utilities were upgraded in the main house and the guest house.
