One $750K price tag gets you two units in this French Quarter cottage

The renovated Victorian home offers a large upper unit with a balcony and a ‘mother-in-law’ unit.

This French Quarter home’s $750,000 price tag is actually a two-for-one deal: it gets you a two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit on the main building’s upper level, and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom mother-in-law cottage in the rear. In total, these two Burgundy Street units comprise 1,963 square feet. Let’s see how that space breaks down.

Here’s the floor plan for the larger 1,605-square-foot upper unit, which features a balcony overlooking the side courtyard.

The open living room, dining room, and kitchen take advantage of plentiful natural light. An exposed brick fireplace bisects the space, creating a visual separation between the living and dining areas. Though pint-sized, the kitchen is long on style, thanks to granite countertops, a farm sink, and open shelving. The exposed ceiling rafters and ductwork add an industrial edge.

A short hallway leads to two attic bedrooms, which are connected by a shared bathroom. An exposed brick chimney lends interest and texture to the spaces.

And that’s the main unit! Now let’s continue to the mother-in-law cottage, which could function as a rental, guest house, or home office. To access the cottage, one walks through the landscaped side yard, past a brick terrace and seating area.

The cottage has an open studio floor plan and a sleeping loft.

The front door opens to a studio space with large windows overlooking the courtyard. High, beamed ceilings make it feel larger than its 358 square feet. Highlights of the kitchen include stainless-steel appliances, granite counters, and a pressed-tin backsplash. A ladder between the kitchen and bathroom entrances leads to a sleeping loft.

The home was constructed in 1967 and remodeled in 2012. Cats and dogs are allowed.
