Less than a year ago this French Quarter Creole cottage sold for $798,000 and already the Dauphine Street digs is back on the market; this time with a $1,000,000 asking price. The 1,400-square-foot home, which dates back to 1839, has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and can come furnished, if one so desires. The skinny kitchen isn't exactly going in the perk department, but according to brokerbabble it's "appropriate and efficient," at least for those who aren't on the hunt for a spacious island and a six-burner stove. The real magic of this listing, though, is in the "private tropical oasis" of a backyard which stretches back 75 feet with a patio, landscaping, fountains, and a pretty spectacular pool.
