The unfinished pictures of this "meticulous renovation" in the Marigny combined with the lack of photographic evidence of the "gourmet kitchen" and large master suite and den, makes the $699,000 price tag for this home even more puzzling. The Franklin Avenue digs sold last March for $105,000 and the 175-year-old Creole cottage received a much-needed facelift that added two new dormers in the front, a fresh patio in the back, and interior upgrades to the 2,450-square-foot house. Sure, this place has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half baths in one of the hottest 'hoods in town, but we're going to go ahead and predict that a price chop is in this home's future. Dear readers, weigh in: Think this is an over-the-top asking price or worth it for property in the Marigny?
