Here’s what $450,000 buys around New Orleans

Homes in five neighborhoods

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Is one person’s studio another person’s Shangri-la? Let’s find out! Today’s price: $450,000.

This newly constructed condo building in Bywater sits on Chartres Street and faces the levee. There are seven luxury units for sale, each with balconies, energy-efficient, modern design, and open living areas. This two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom unit consists of 1,674 square feet spread across three stories. It’s right across the street from Crescent Park’s “Rusty Rainbow” entrance, and it’s asking $449,000.

Built in 2000, this sprawling 3,546-square-foot estate in New Orleans East will see all the classic McMansion hallmarks (interior columns, asymmetrical front facade) and raise them with the addition of some truly mystifying murals—a silhouette of a man smashing a guitar and a two-story rose among them. Other amenities include granite countertops, cove ceilings and a Jacuzzi tub. The asking price is $445,000.

This three-bedroom Arts and Crafts bungalow in Uptown looks very much the octogenarian from the outside (it was built in 1935), but its interior is thoroughly modern. It’s been totally renovated to include an open floor plan with cathedral ceilings, a deck, and an en-suite master bath with a soaker tub. It’s asking $450,000.

Here’s a 1,015-square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo on the ground floor of a circa-1868 French Quarter condo. Luxe original touches including crystal chandeliers, transoms, pocket doors, and wooden floors meet an efficient floor plan where many rooms overlook a leafy, red-brick courtyard. HOA fees are $675/month, and the asking price is $459,000.

Featuring four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and stylish finishes including quartz countertops, a subway tile backsplash, and engineered wood floors, this new construction in Holy Cross asks $459,000. The listing says its “perfect for entertaining,” thanks to an open living area, wine rack, and back deck.
