When renovating historically significant homes, it can be a challenge to strike a balance between preserving the home’s original features and updating its amenities for a 21st-century lifestyle. However, this Victorian’s renovation hits the sweet spot. In 2015, the home’s owners added contemporary flourishes to areas that would have looked very different when the home was built in 1893—namely, the kitchen and the bathrooms.
However, they left living area’s original chandeliers, plaster medallions, pocket doors, and wood floors intact.
The living area leads to a dining room in classic double-parlor configuration, and beyond that, there’s a kitchen where things take a turn for the contemporary. It features geometric chandeliers, a sunroom, slate floors, and a wet bar.
The sunroom’s panoramic glass doors and transoms overlook a backyard pool and 1,100 square-foot, two bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom guesthouse.
A bedroom and bathroom sit on the ground floor of the 3,375-square-foot main house, and upstairs, there are two more bedrooms (one opens to a balcony) and two more bathrooms. There, an antique chandelier hangs above a modern glass enclosure shower and soaking tub. In fact, chandeliers are pretty much everywhere.
For $1,495,000, this Garden District home can be yours.
