When you’re working with a budget of around $200,000, options in the French Quarter are limited. You can find a studio at that price point, but not always one that also has abundant natural light, high-end appliances, and a private courtyard.
However, if you cross over into the Marigny Triangle, you get all the ambience of the French Quarter, plus proximity to its attractions. This 334-square-foot studio sits right by the intersection of Chartres Street and Esplanade Avenue. It comes with all the afore-mentioned amenities, plus plenty of flair.
The living area includes French doors, brick walls, wood floors, and exposed beams.
The pint-sized kitchen wins points for its efficient use of space. Under the granite countertops, find a stainless-steel drawer fridge and freezer.
There’s plenty of room to tuck a queen-sized bed in the studio, and furniture can create a visual separation between the sleeping and living areas. A transom window allows light while retaining a sense of privacy. Recessed lighting showcases the texture of the bricks.
The bathroom shower is attractively tiled, and a tankless water heater keeps things energy-efficient.
Now for the pièce de résistance: the courtyard. Here, too, statement tiles add a sense of whimsy.
The 100-year-old condo’s asking price is $213,000, and HOA fees are a reasonable (for the area) $176/month.
