If it seems like we have a thing for attic units in the French Quarter...it’s because we do. But can you blame us? Cozy and welcoming, they lend themselves well to open floor plans while still boasting a number of nooks and crannies where one can hole up. And speaking of holing up, they’re usually quieter (no loud neighbors upstairs) and cheaper than regular apartments.
Tucked under the eaves of a Creole cottage built in 1843, this 953-square-foot condo checks all those boxes—plus, it’s blessed with natural light, thanks to dormer windows. (Levolor blinds mean it’s just as easily blessed with sleep-conducive darkness.) We’re smitten with the exposed rafters and barge board, which give the living area a cathedral-esque feel.
The single bedroom is sizable, as is its closet. There’s one bathroom with a glass enclosure shower/bathtub and pedestal sink.
And in a good use of one of the aforementioned crannies—here’s a laundry area tucked inside a dormer window!
If that’s not enough to charm you, check out the unassuming (and rather hobbit home-esque) entry, which opens to a flagstone courtyard with a fountain.
HOA fees are $300/month.
