Treme's Tete Residence, The Last Known Building Designed by Henry Howard, Asks $1.95M

It's filled with beautiful details

Prolific Louisiana architect Henry Howard's final work might have been this Treme home, built in 1882 for Auguste Tete.

Howard's signature features, including segmental arches and grand staircases, fill the 6,400-sqaure-foot property. There's also beautiful plaster moldings, ornate woodwork, and fireplace mantels throughout.

The grand Victorian on Esplanade Avenue, restored as a single-family residence, also has areas on the first and second floors that could serve as mother-in-law suites.

How much for this beauty? The asking price is $1,950,000.
