This beautifully renovated condo on Esplanade Avenue seeks $1.15M

An elegant remodel gave the 19th-century townhome a modern open floor plan while preserving its historic elements.

Esplanade Avenue might just be the nicest place to live in the French Quarter. It enjoys easy access to all the Quarter’s bars, restaurants, and music venues. Its oak-shaded neutral ground is a peaceful counterpoint to the bustling streetcar lines on Canal and North Rampart streets, which join Esplanade in forming the French Quarter’s man-made boundaries.

Then there are its graceful, 19th-century mansions. Built in 1856, this townhome was restored and remodeled by Chandelier Development to become four condominiums. The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom unit sits on the building’s first floor. Step through a door with stained glass details into a foyer with marble floors, and turn left to enter the 1,476-square-foot unit’s living area.

There, two large windows with interior trim provide views of a live oak’s burly branches. Crystal chandeliers, ceiling medallions, crown molding, and original hardwood floors are set against a minimal white palette and open floor plan. An arched door connects the living area and kitchen.

Let’s get a closer look at the detailing on that arched doorway, though.

Highlights of the kitchen include a marble island and backsplash, plus appliances by Wolf and Subzero.

Accessed via wide pocket doors, the master bedroom lies beyond a small dining area. High ceilings and transoms make the 280-square-foot room feel airy and spacious. The bathrooms are petite but luxurious—one has a soaking tub and the other has an enclosure shower. Both are tiled with marble.

The unit shares a pool with its neighbors. HOA fees are $911/month, and the asking price is $1,150,000. There’s an open house from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, October 25, and another from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, October 28.
