5 open houses in New Orleans to check out this weekend

From Lakeview to Treme

Welcome to the weekly Open House Tour, because who doesn’t love a little real estate gawking? This time around, we’re looking at what’s on the market and open for tours in Algiers Point, Lakeview, Treme, the University area, and more.

This four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bedroom new construction is a prime example of the sprawling contemporary homes popping up all over Lakeview. Its sleek, 2,579-square-foot open floor plan emphasizes its natural light and 10-foot ceilings. We particularly love the outdoor kitchen and entertaining area perched above the garage—its grill, sink, refrigerator, TV hookups, wood-burning fireplace, and Sonos audio system make it a natural spot for watching Saints games. The price tag is $715,000.

When: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, October 7

A newly renovated three-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage in Treme is blocks from the Lafitte Greenway and landmarks including Dooky Chase and Willie Mae’s Scotch House. Built in 1950, its highlights include brick fireplaces, 11-foot ceilings, crown molding, and stainless-steel appliances. It’s asking $331,000.

When: 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, October 7

Built in 1888, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage in Algiers Point received a luxurious update that added stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, and a bathroom with an enclosure shower and soaker tub. Its Pelican Street address places it blocks away from Confetti Park, the ferry terminal, and levee paths. The price tag is $289,000.

When: 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, October 7

This five-bedroom, three-bathroom raised basement home in the University area has a two bedroom, one-bathroom apartment on its ground floor, which opens to a saltwater pool. A 2013 renovation lends polish to the circa-1942 beauty, with granite countertops and a subway tile backsplash in the kitchen and bathroom. Original wood floors and crown molding are present throughout. The price is $659,000.

When: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, October 6

Exposed brick walls, raftered ceilings, interior shutters, and wood floors give this 1,974-square-foot townhouse in Uptown a cozy, inviting feel. The front door opens to a sun-soaked foyer, which connects to a study, kitchen, living room, and den with its own bar. Upstairs, find three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a laundry room. A private brick courtyard framed by stucco walls awaits outside. HOA dues are $426 per month, and the asking price is $629,000.

When: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, October 7
