837 Royal St #E is a wealth of history and elegance. This two bedroom, two bath unit acts as the "owner's unit" of a building that dates back to 1833 and is perhaps one of the most pure representations of Creole architecture that has stood the test of time. The elaborate double residence was built by Joseph Peralta for French Doctor Paul La Croix, who also owned the nearby Gaz Bank down the street at 339 Royal St. The complex itself spans two buildings connected by a passageway. Apartment E is 1,800 square feet and includes sweeping crown molding with ceiling medallions and chandeliers, elegant columns, and even an artful mural of riverboats gliding along the Mississippi. Amenities include off-street parking, a courtyard, balcony, and pool. 837 Royal St #E hits the market at $1.6M.
