Known as the Ossorno House, this 230-year-old Creole Plantation style home—an oddity for the Quarter—is among of the oldest in the area. The 4,839 square-feet home is currently a run-down four-plex with an unfinished third floor, but perhaps someone will restore it to its glory. The so-called "diamond-in-the-ruff" in the Lower Quarter includes marble fireplace mantles, wood floors, and French doors. What's the asking price? $2,740,000.
