716 Peniston St. has a modern facade with warm New Orleans touches on the inside, like flooring salvaged from the original home, a statement piece staircase and kitchen island also featuring salvaged wood, restored pocket doors and restored original windows. But befitting its modern look, the 2,289 square-foot four bedroom, three bathroom house is tricked out with some green features: spray-foam insulation, a southern-facing roof that's ready for solar panels, a tankless water heater and high-efficiency windows. Architects Colectivo and developer/builder Bastion Works were behind the renovation, which also includes a wrap-around covered porch, a small balcony overlooking a garden-ready backyard, and off-street parking. The asking price? $725,000.
