Built in 1841, you’ll find this impeccable townhouse on St. Louis Street that just hit the market. Once owned by Antoine Cruzat—a former treasure for Orleans Parish, Warden of the St. Louis Cathedral, and a Creole plantation owner—this French Quarter home has a mix of Greek and French influences. Its asking price is $1.45 million.

Standing three stories tall, this townhouse has a deep marble foyer, a formal living and dining room, and a natural light-filled den. Unmistakably a luxury home, we appreciate its plaster medallions, built-in bookshelves, 13-foot ceilings, and immaculate wood flooring.

Its airy kitchen, which could easily be used as an eat-in, has custom cabinets, exposed brick walls, brick flooring, and stainless steel appliances.

Measuring at 2,676 square feet, this home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. You’ll find antique clawfoot bathtubs and tall glass showers (check out that tile) in its full bathrooms. Its third-floor bedroom has an ensuite half bathroom and vaulted ceilings.

This home has a private balcony that’s accessible from its den that has a sweeping view St. Louis Street. Out back you’ll find a balcony that overlooks this townhouse’s gorgeous, landscaped brick patio.
