Historic French Quarter Home Hits Market With $3.3M Price Tag

Built in 1860 as the ultimate bachelor pad, this six-bedroom, five-bath home hit the market last week with an ask of $3.3M. Known as the Fisk-Hopkins-Schwartz Home, the house was originally a library and billiard room for the men of the Fisk and Urquhart families, who stayed at the main house next door. In 1871, Aristide Hopkins, agent of the Baroness de Pontalba, bought the place and added the second floor and balcony. The 5,188-square foot home was sold to the Schwartz fam (current owners) in 1925. The listing claims it's the "largest residential area home" in the Quarter with the lot extending a block back to Barracks Street. Sadly, it's lacking in the photo department but this video tour does offer a brief peek inside.
