Welcome to the weekly Open House Tour, because who doesn’t love a little real estate gawking? This time around, we’re looking at what’s on the market and open for tours in the French Quarter, Fair Grounds area, Holy Cross, Gentilly, and more.
Move over, Bywater—if its number of stylish new constructions are any indication, Gentilly is the hot new homebuyers’ market. This four-bedroom, two-bathroom contemporary home is a perfect example. With its quartz counters, open floor plan, tray ceilings, and engineered wood floor, it’s a very on-trend addition to the sedate Gentilly neighborhood. We particularly love the master bathroom’s walk-in waterfall shower and soaker tub. The price tag is $364,500.
When: 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, September 29

Kitchen highlights include granite countertops and Sub-Zero appliances. There’s also a 1,035-square-foot rec room. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home asks $1,495,000.
When: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, September 30
This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom new construction is close enough to the Fair Grounds that you can hear New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival headliners from its front porch. Its 1,500 square feet are divided across two floors—find a living room, kitchen, den, and front and back porches on the first floor, and three bedrooms on the second floor. Cove crown molding, quartz counters, and wood floors add to its appeal. The price tag is $345,000.
When: Noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, September 30
This quirky, dormer window-lined French Quarter condo has lots of character—and history. It occupies the top floor of the Jean Adrian Delpit House, which was extensively rebuilt in 1840 by Delpit, a tobacconist who dealt in perique tobacco. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, and a living area occupy its 1,233 square feet. The luxury unit’s $629,000 price tag includes all furnishings, and HOA dues are $710/month.
When: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, September 30
Frilly and gingerbread house-y on the outside, this circa-1918 Eastlake Victorian side hall in Holy Cross is sleek and experimental on the inside. A functional and visually arresting spiral staircase connects a ground-level den to the home’s main living area, which features an open floor plan. Its front porch faces the grassy Industrial Canal levee and its constant parade of tugboats, bicyclists, and pelicans. The raised, three-bedroom, two-bathroom beauty asks $460,000.
When: 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, September 29
