Before and after: Completely renovated Marigny cottage hits market at $998.9K

An unbelievable transformation

This completely renovated barge-board cottage dates all the way back to 1842. When Tad Breaux first bought the home in 2014, it was unkempt and uninhabitable. After a groundbreaking renovation, the home was transformed into an outstanding single-family home.

The cottage is located on St. Anthony Street, less than a block from St. Claude and Esplanade avenues. The surrounding neighborhood has a Walk Score of 93.

The asking price is $998,900. The renovated home is priced at $359 per square foot, which is $79 less than the neighborhood average of $438 per square foot.

The renovated home has ceilings heights that reach up to 18 feet in some rooms. Other features include installed heart of pine flooring, exposed-brick fireplace, pocket doors, and exposed ceiling joists. The home also has elegant floor-to-ceiling windows visible in the gallery.

In the middle of the home, a large open-floor living and dining area seamlessly flows into the home’s gourmet kitchen.

Other room highlights include the home’s inviting parlor, an office, and a dedicated laundry room.

At 2,785 square feet, the raised cottage has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The master bedroom—which has three sizable closets—is complete with a luxurious bathroom suite.

At the side of the home are two covered porches, while at the rear is a clean and clear backyard.
