Built in 1921 in a spacious cottage located in the 7th ward. The home is two blocks away from the North Rampart Streetcar line, and two blocks from Elysian Fields Avenue. According to Redfin, the surrounding neighborhood is both easy to walk and bike.

The asking price of the home is $399,000, which is nearly $30,000 under the median average for the neighborhood’s area. Additionally, the 2,089 square-foot home is $191 per square foot, which is $247 under the neighborhood average.

According to the figures, this house is a steal, but how how does it stack up in reality?

Beginning with the exterior, the home sits directly on the sidewalk, lacking even the smallest of yard spaces. Making up for lost yard space is a sizable porch area with ornate columns, decorated with a white trimming.

Inside, the home has a traditional, but spacious floor plan with a separate living room and dining room area. The house has tall ceilings and its original hardwood flooring installed throughout the home. The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Outside, there is ample backyard space, but hardly any green space. The yard space is a paved, uncovered patio.
