Long before this Tremé house became the four-bedroom, two-bath, brightly colored, art-filled place it is now, it was home to Isidore's Cozy Corner and Warren's Bar. The current owners, who called themselves "phase two renovators" in a 2004 issue of Preservation in Print, scooped up the property in 1998 for $76,000 when the corner store building was rental units and commercial space. Now a single-family dwelling, the just-listed home on St. Philip Street has a 750-square-foot wrap-around balcony, a "luscious" private brick patio, and the bonus perk of an upstairs kitchenette for those who don't want to make the trek for a midnight snack. The asking price: $485,000.
