A contemporary-meets-classic camelback in Uptown asks $650K

Stylish and airy, the home is less than a block from Magazine Street

This handsome three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom camelback in Uptown has all the trappings of a historic New Orleans home: ornate corbels, floor-to-ceiling windows, wooden floors. But because it was built in 2013, it comes without the maintenance issues that often plague older homes. It also boasts a contemporary layout with an open living area.

We love the abundant natural light and the Old-World lantern in the dining room. Together with the exposed wood columns, they form a rustic counterpoint to the kitchen’s glass pendant lights.

The kitchen is quite luxurious, thanks to its marble countertops and stainless-steel appliances.

Two bedrooms and a full bathroom are upstairs, and that separation from the main living area allows them more peace and quiet. In a very New Orleans layout, the master bedroom sits at the front of the house, opening to the aforementioned corbel-decked porch. In addition to its own private outdoor sitting area, it also features a massive walk-in closet—something you won’t find in a vintage camelback. Highlights of the bathroom include a soaking tub, glass enclosure shower, and double vanity.

The screened back porch extends the living area and offers an ideal spot for entertaining or just hanging out with a good book.

At 1,920 square feet, this home is not too big and not too small. It’s less than a block from bustling Magazine Street.
