Less than a block from Decatur Street, you’ll find this luxury unit for sale in this historical Creole townhouse. Jean Adrien Delpit, a tobacconist in the mid-19th century, owned this building, and used part of it as a tobacco and snuff factory until the late 19th-century.

Located on the second floor of this townhouse, we’re absolutely impressed by size of this condo’s open-floor living room. Highlights include its soaring ceilings, large windows, pine floors, and crown molding. Maintaining its historic charm, you’ll also find a gorgeous brick fireplace and aged mantel in its living room.

While this home isn’t necessarily large, it makes great use of its space. Check out its sensible kitchen. Along with it’s pure ambience, you’ll find stainless steel appliances and ample cabinet space.

Measuring at 954 square feet, this unit has one large bedroom (with another great fireplace) and one bathroom.

For bonus entertainment, you’ll find a roomy and private balcony that faces St. Louis Street. A private courtyard sits at the rear of this townhouse.
