Which Uptown Camelback Would You Buy?

New, 4 comments

Imagine you have around $850,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two houses. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address: 1113 Ninth St./ 5525 Coliseum St.
Price: $845,000/$799,000
Beds, Baths: 4, 3.5/3, 3.5

↑ First up, a 2,604 square-feet William Sonner new construction in the Garden District with high ceilings, exposed beams in the kitchen, wide plank white oak floors, and a large back patio. That back patio looks a little soulless, but it would be great for a big party.

↑ With its overwhelming whiteness and camelback style, this very similar looking Audubon home clocks in at 2,084 square feet. Built in 1906, the home has a very clean, contemporary look, with an open kitchen/dining area and a back patio with modern lines and an outdoor fireplace — but there's even less greenery than the first house. So, do you want a slightly bigger, more expensive, and newer home, or an old home with contemporary updates for a slightly lower price?
