Sure, it's an overused buzzword, but this Tremé/Esplanade Ridge home is pretty darn charming and would probably be listed for double its $249,000 asking price were it plunked Uptown. Built in 1913, there's two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,400-square feet of living space. The second floor does have sloped ceilings, though, so that could be a deal breaker for the tall crowd. Perks: some of the rooms have original hardwood floors, there are two porches and a veranda, gas fireplaces, and A+ for the yard.
