In an ideal location on the Irish Channel/Lower Garden District border, this Jackson Avenue duplex hit the market in February asking $569,000. Many price chops later, the home is down to $499,000.
The units of the downstairs/upstairs duplex are 1,179 square feet each. Currently, the upstairs unit—which has a balcony—brings in $1,600 a month in rent. Jazz cornetist Dominic "Nick" LaRocca is said to have lived at the property from 1928-1942.
The home has hardwood floors throughout, and the owner’s unit has a high-efficiency ductless air conditioner. The charming backyard includes a workshop and storage shed.
