Built in 1877, this Henry Howard Italianate mansion located at the edge of the Seventh Ward hit the market for $1.6 million. While currently a single-family home, its seller say that it has the potential to be converted into a six-unit condo.

Sitting on landscaped grounds, this double-gallery home has beautiful columns, gorgeous iron railings, and five tall windows. We’re also impressed by its 10-foot tall front doors.

In its foyer you’ll find gorgeous doors and stained-glass transom. It has formal living and dining room that both have ornate plaster, mantels, and large windows. This home has hardwood flooring and tall ceilings throughout.

Measuring at 4,471 square feet, this home has eight bedrooms and 6 and a half bathrooms. We’re a fan of the master bedroom suite that has a brick fireplace and direct balcony access. Its master bathroom has a double vanity, walk-in shower, and a fantastic soaking tub.

At its rear you’ll find a covered rear porch, patio, and a private pool.
