Just a couple of blocks outside the Garden District, this Chestnut Street abode seems like it has a lot going for it. The five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath centerhall Victorian on "estate-like grounds" has a gorgeous pool surrounded by a brick courtyard and cabana; pretty porch areas; and plenty of living space at 4,247-square-feet. So, what gives? This isn't the home's first rodeo on the market. If Zillow's records are accurate, this baby has had its fair share of price chopping, from a $1,725,000 asking price in 2012 and then asks that ranged from $1,655,000 to $1,325,000 in 2013. Perhaps its current $1,295,000 price tag will do the trick?It's been quite some time since an actual sale occurred here, though—public records show the last one way back in 1986 for $190,000.
