This Garden District Victorian, built in 1895, has some historic details: decorative details on the staircase, ornate fireplace mantles, chandeliers, pretty wood floors and 11-foot ceilings. But somewhere along the way the house gained some bland features, like an underwhelming kitchen and boring tile in the room looking out onto the pool. Maybe you could buy it and give it some love? Other details of the three-bedroom, two-bathroom 2,459 square-foot home include the aforementioned pool and off-street parking. What's the asking price? $725,000.
