The new $334,000 price tag after a $41,000 price chop isn't the only thing different about this Algiers Point home. Apparently, the ruby red, blue, and golden walls throughout the 2,655-square-foot space weren't dazzling any buyers, as the walls are all stark white now. No longer a for sale by owner property, the photos are better quality and as amusing as they were, there are no humans posing in the listing pics this time around. The homeowner babble repping the Alix Street "landmark" as "one of the most unusual and beautiful homes in New Orleans" has been replaced with broker babble touting this "exotic and architecturally intriguing home" and its "exquisite open floor design with versatile & generous sized great rooms for entertainment, coved ceilings, soft, arched transitions." There's tile and cherry wood floors, a futuristic-looking shower, and an upper level master bedroom suite with a Flinstones-esque exterior that opens to a rooftop deck with views of downtown across the river. Other outdoor space includes a wraparound porch and a gigantic yard. There's still mention of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi being an influence and this time a builder is named (Tom Leathem, Sr.) with the vague build date of somewhere between the 1930s and '50s, as it was apparently an ongoing project.
