Let's just get this out of the way: yes, that is a beer bottle holding up the porch column in the "before" photo. Listed on the Mid-City Neighborhood Organization's website in 2011 as a blighted property, this 1,820-square foot pad is asking $295K. You've come a long way, baby, but we're hoping these shots were snapped mid-renovation since the "stylish fixtures and finishes" seem to be missing. There's three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and beautiful hardwood floors. Best selling point, though? A "gumbo pot filler," y'all, which – of course – refers to the spigot above the stove so you don't have to haul a big ole' gumbo pot across the kitchen.
