This townhouse in Treme—part of a row of brick townhouses named Monrose Row after the original owner, Charles Monrose—dates back to the 1800s, but the owner/agent Eric Wilkinson gave the space a contemporary makeover a few years ago.
A contemporary open kitchen with white cabinets and backsplash opens to the window-filled living room. A wraparound balcony with four sets of French doors offers views of the neighborhood and the downtown skyline.
The master bathroom, with exposed brick, a clawfoot tub with patina, glamorous lighting and a sleek shower and sink, typifies the home's mix of styles.
And don't sleep on that lush backyard.
What's the asking price? $679,000.
