Built in 1847, located in the Treme neighborhood near the St. Augustine Catholic Church, is a rare Creole cottage duplex. The home is block from North Rampart Street, roughly three blocks from Esplanade Avenue, and walking distance from Armstrong Park.

The asking price is $465,000.

Built by Pierre Dupeux and Fedrick Buisson, the residence is uniquely designed. Featured in volume six of the New Orleans Architecture, the author notes that common-wall creole cottages are a unique design, rare to an New Orleans neighborhood. In fact, this is one of two common-wall residences built by the duo.

The cottage is currently two separate units, but can easily be converted into a single-family home.

Together, the units have three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The 1110 unit has one bedroom and bathroom; The 1108 unit has an open floorplan on the first floor, and two bedrooms on the second floor.

Most notably, the owner’s unit has hardwood floors, tall ceilings, a fire place mantel. The secondary unit has its original exposed brick throughout the bedroom and living room.

In the back of the residences, the units share an uncovered, private brick patio, adorned by intimate garden spaces.
