These houses on the market right now might be skinny, but they aren't lacking — whether it's in charm, a feeling of space created by high ceilings, or cool amenities. Check out these three houses in three New Orleans neighborhoods.
↑ This bright blue Bayou St. John cottage looks like a birdhouse, but you're actually getting two living spaces when you buy. The front two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage is 946 square feet and includes a side entrance to an open living and kitchen area. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom second cottage is 819 square feet and has its own backyard. Asking price for your own little small-house compound? $335,000.
↑ While we don't love the carpet and the amount of fireplace mantles (there's such a thing as too many, especially when they're occupying precious real estate in the kitchen and bathroom) this renovated two-bedroom, two-bathroom Bywater cottage is cute and compact at 803 square feet. There's a little outdoor space that opens to off-street parking. Asking price is $305,000.
↑ This place may be narrow, but the inside of this 2,162-square-feet Marigny two-story is packed with features: a gleaming kitchen with a walnut butcher block-topped island, high ceilings, lots of closet space, and an open floor plan that allows for natural light to flood in. The asking price for this long, lovely beauty? $669,900. · 1025 Crete St. [Realtor.com]
