The owners renovated the home in 2006, revamping the electrical and plumbing systems, and installed a new slate roof. The Bywater home sits two blocks from St. Claude Avenue and is near the Mississippi River.
The asking price is $349,500.
Featured on Curbed as one of three shotguns to buy now, the owners of this Victorian home have maintained the shotgun’s historic charm. Original features include the home’s three brick fireplaces, cypress doors (along with two cypress pocket doors), and ten 12-pane beveled windows. Other highlights include the home’s original knotted pine flooring and 12-foot ceilings found throughout the residence.
The home sports a traditional shotgun layout, with each room coming after the next. The 1,050-square foot home has a living room/parlor, two bedrooms, and one bathroom. The master bedroom leads to a keeping room, laundry room, and the home’s spacious bathroom. The eat-in kitchen has custom cabinetry and a brick fireplace.
Outside, the home has four shutters (all of which are operating) and off-street parking that can accommodate four cars. At the rear of the home is an uncovered wooden deck and a modest garden.
