This 1840s French Quarter home is on the market for the first time in 50 years and according to the listing, it's "the real deal" and a "golden opportunity to renovate to your personal taste," which is basically a couple nice ways of saying, "This home needs some work." The 2,444-square foot home isn't horrendous at all, but the kitchen is a bit cringe-worthy and what is up with the floors in the common areas? On the bright side, it's on the less touristy, residential side of the Quarter, has three bedrooms with a balcony off of the master bedroom, three bathrooms, a nice courtyard and off-street gated parking. Asking price: $839,000.
