This prime example of Victorian architecture was built in 1865. Its Uptown address near the intersection of Peniston and Pitts streets is a short walk to St. Charles Avenue or Magazine Street.

The gracious home has a few modern updates. It received a new roof in 2016. Two second-floor bathrooms were renovated in 2016, and the first-floor bathroom was renovated this year. The kitchen has also been renovated.
