Built in 1810, this extraordinary Creole Cottage sits on Dumaine Street, roughly two blocks from the French Market and the Mississippi River. Most notably it ranks as the oldest listed home in New Orleans as of September of 2017.
The asking price is $2,820,000.
At first glance this home has a common Creole cottage facade. While wide, it has two entrances and two windows dressed with shutters, a pitched roof, and a pop-up chimney.
Undergoing a light scale interior renovation, the owner created an airy and grand feel with its large open dining and living spaces. Highlights include exposed rafters, hardwood flooring in bedrooms, and tall ceilings.
Its kitchen has sleek and exquisite finishes, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, and large island.
This spacious home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Its master bedroom, located on the first floor, has ample closet space and additional walk-in closet space available in an adjacent room.
An expansive and landscaped courtyard sits at the rear of this home, separating the main house from its two-story guest house.
The guest home has an open floor living room with built-in shelves, one bedroom, and one bathroom.
