Situated near the about-to-explode South Market District and a block away from Julia Street's row of galleries, this 6,000-square-foot residential/retail combo is fresh on the market with a $2,950,000 price tag. Built in 1839, the Camp Street spot has 1,300-square-feet of ground floor retail space (this was the former home of D.O.C.S. Gallery), parking, and a "spacious marble-floored elevator" gives keyed access to the three residential units on floors two to four. While the two-bedroom, two-bath units are nearly identical— they all have original heart of pine floors, granite counter tops, and washer/dryers— the second floor option looks like the place to pounce on. It has 14-foot ceilings, a private balcony overlooking Camp Street, and a rooftop deck with courtyard and St. Charles Avenue views. Speaking of outdoor views, in an art perk move, a metal wall sculpture by Steve Martin (the local artist, not the banjo-pickin' comedian) and a sculpture in the courtyard by Mark Chatterley are included in the sale price.
