And, now, the answer to this week's PriceSpotter asking-price guessing game.
Address: 1212 Barracks St.
Asking Price: $825,000
The Skinny: Good job, voters. The majority (36.7 percent) nailed the correct asking price. The second most popular vote went to the $925,000 price tag and 16 percent figured this place was shooting for $980,000. There is a lot to admire about this 3,719-square-foot Tremé home, located a few blocks outside of the French Quarter. The inside space is pretty great with no shortage of bedrooms (five) or bathrooms (five, as well) and glimmering details like the crystal chandiliers and stained glass windows above the stairway (reportedly salvaged from a church that was getting demo'd when the house was being built in 1855). The carpet is questionable (not to mention the er, interesting choice in hues) and the bathroom art is definitely unique (but we sort of love it). Outside is where the swooning really starts, though — two balconies, a private L-shaped backyard with a fountain in the center, brick walkways, statues, an inground pool, and a guesthouse. Fun fact: the previous owner of this house designed the driveway from stones collected when work was going on at the Mississippi River bridge back in 1985.
