Formerly a blighted, neglected shack, this Irish Channel home had been vacant since Hurricane Katrina when Mike Bridges of Flip the Quarter spotted its potential. He applied his signature combination of locally sourced materials and luxe finishes for a renovation that’s almost....inspirational. Put it this way: if we were a house, we’d want our 2018 transformation to rival this one.
This former eyesore now sparks conversations from passersby for positive reasons. Its once-peeling exterior boasts a bold, graphic interplay of siding in a grayscale color palette.
Prior to its renovation, the home’s interior had been gutted to the studs. A few original elements, including the brick fireplaces, were left intact.
The first floor of the two-bedroom, two-bathroom home features a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom in a linear, shotgun-like arrangement. With its geometric light fixtures, stainless-steel appliances, open shelving, and brushed stainless steel and Carrera marble countertops, the kitchen is sleek and stylish.
A two-story addition at the rear converted the home into a camelback and added space for a master bedroom-bathroom suite. All in all, the home is 1,134 square feet.
Here’s a closer look at the first-floor bathroom tucked under the stairs. Its subway tile and black-gray-and-white tiled floors echo the home’s graphic exterior, while the door adds a pop of color that serves as a visual tie to the kitchen’s bright geometric light fixtures.
The home’s second story has high ceilings, recessed lights, glossy wooden floors, and a glass enclosure shower.
Want to make this former ugly duckling your own? It’s asking $350,000, but you better hurry—the listing shows an offer is pending.
