A 100-year-old cottage gets a modern makeover

The Uptown home was extensively renovated in 2018

Built around 100 years ago, this cottage was extensively renovated in 2018 and now looks better than ever. A before shot on the Orleans Parish Assessor’s Office shows a home with good bones, but a lackluster paint job. The exterior has been spruced up with a new lantern, paint job, and hanging plants—and that’s a taste of the more extensive improvements featured in the home’s interior.

An open living area spans the entirety of the home, and four floor-to-ceiling windows soak the space in natural light. Highlights include 10-foot ceilings and heart of pine floors.

The kitchen’s marble countertops, white cabinetry, and glass pendant lights create an airy, expansive feel, as do the dining area’s antique French doors and transom.

An exposed brick fireplace with a reclaimed mantel adds a rustic touch to the elegant space.

The 2,288-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, where Carrera marble counters and champagne bronze fixtures add luster. Some bedrooms include exposed original bargeboard beams.

The Uptown home asks $785,000.
