Built in 1867 is this double-turned-single shotgun located on North Prieur Street. The home is three blocks from Esplanade Avenue and two blocks from North Galvez Street. The surrounding neighborhood has a competitive Bike Score of 95.

The asking price is $299,000, which is $128,000 less than the neighborhood median average of $427,000.

The home sits directly on the sidewalk like most shotgun homes in New Orleans.

The interior has a unique and classic charm with its original hardwood flooring, cypress doors, seven ornamental mantels, and wooden windows. Parts of the home have been renovated, while other rooms seemed to keep its rugged, but genuine feel.

The 2,151-square-foot home has three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. Additional rooms to note are its two parlors, two offices, and its yoga room. In terms of space, the office rooms can easily be converted to bedrooms—and the house itself can be converted into a double residence.

The home has a large eat-in kitchen that has exposed brick, hardwood flooring, and overlooks the backyard. Though, the kitchen could use a little TLC, which is expected at this price point.
