Here’s what $350K buys in New Orleans right now

From Bayou St. John to Venetian Isles

Welcome to this week’s Curbed Comparisons, where we look at homes for sale in different neighborhoods around New Orleans. Today, we’re looking at houses within $15,000 of our budget: $350,000.

Billed as a “waterfront retreat” in its listing, this raised four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom in Venetian Isles is an entertainer’s dream thanks to a new deck, screened porch, and open floor plan. It has been renovated, but its 1976-era bones show through in the wet bar. Double-insulated windows, an HE hot water heater, bamboo floors, and solar panels are a few eco-friendly touches. The asking price is $359,000.

Continuing the waterfront property theme is this 950-square-foot one-bedroom penthouse condo at Lake Marina. It’s the vision of 1980s glamour and excess, from the black marble floors to the whirlpool tub to what appears to be a chandelier-hung bedroom with a completely mirrored ceiling and walls. The price tag is $335,000, and HOA fees are $400/month—which gets you one covered parking spot, pool access, 24-7 security, and unlimited Scarface vibes.

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom home’s contemporary design promises cutting-edge amenities—and its eco-friendly LED lighting, foam insulation, insulated windows, and tankless hot water heater deliver. A steeply angled roof and blocky windows stand out from those of its Gert Town neighbors, but that just makes the home easier to find. The price tag is $359,000.

Who doesn’t love a one-bedroom French Quarter condo—especially one whose weathered brick walls, exposed overhead beams, crystal chandeliers, and stainless steel appliances offer such a lush study in textural contrast? The ground floor opens to a shared courtyard, which expands the living space beyond the unit’s 645 square feet. The asking price is $343,140, and HOA fees are $393/month.

Double shotgun homes are something of a dying breed in New Orleans, as more and more are being renovated and converted into single-family homes. This four-bedroom, four-bathroom double shotgun at 2721-23 Dumaine Street in Bayou St. John maintains its classic footprint, which contributes to urban density and can offer rental income (or serve as a mother-in-law suite). We love the arched doorways, wood floors, and French doors on the circa-1918 gem. It’s yours for $340,00.
