The beauty of the Bywater is that it holds some of New Orleans’s unique and colorful homes. And for $424,900 you can buy this bright and sizable double shotgun at 1040-42 Desire Street—which ranks among our favorite shotguns on the market.

This Victorian-style shotgun has as an attractive facade that has a pleasant trim, a shared sitting porch (with a swinging bench), and a lovely dormer.

Both units have an identical floorplan. Each residence has a large living rooms that flows effortlessly into its kitchen. We’re a fan of the decorative brick fireplaces, Brazilian teak floors, crown molding, and tall ceilings found in both units.

The kitchens in these units have granite counters and stainless steel appliances.

Measuring just over 860 square feet, each unit has two bedrooms and one bathrooms. Both of the master bedrooms have plenty of closet space and lead to both a laundry room and the units bathrooms.

A shared backyard with a patio sit at the rear of this home.
