It’s not every day you find a home built by late-New Orleans architect Henry Howard—and one of his last projects at that. Located right on Esplanade Avenue, this tall Victorian beauty is technically located in Treme, cusping the 7th Ward neighborhood. It sits two blocks form North Galvez Street.

The asking price for this 19th-century home built is $1,590,000.

From afar, it has sizable front yard, complimented by its tree-lined street. Its double-gallery facade has eye-catching arches, petite columns, and tall windows.

Undergoing a recent restoration, it has a double parlor (divided by an outstanding archway), deep foyer, and a set of low-rising stairs.

Other highlights include its stain-glass windows, beautiful hardwood floors, giant doors, tall ceilings, plaster medallions, and luxurious mantels. It has a large dining space that blends into its kitchen. Other highlights include an office, sitting room, and study.

At 5,390 square feet, this home has seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. All bedrooms have fireplaces, window transoms, ceiling fans, and crown molding.

Both a covered porch and large brick patio sit at this home’s rear. It also have a driveway that can accommodate up to two cars.
