To passersby on Esplanade Avenue, this property would appear to be a simple Greek Revival side hall—and it is. But a sprawling complex lies beyond its balconied facade. A four-bedroom, four-and-half bathroom home, parking for eight cars, an expansive courtyard, and guest house are all part of the $3,150,000 package.
Built circa 1860. the property covers 5,738 square feet. It’s a sizable home, especially for the French Quarter, and every inch is beautifully appointed. In the formal living room, crown molding, medallions, and crystal chandeliers add luster to the high-ceilinged, sunlight-soaked space.
Chandeliers also illuminate the formal dining room’s wooden floors, fireplace, and floor-to-ceiling windows, which overlook an expansive courtyard.
The kitchen has both Old World and contemporary vibes, thanks to exposed brick, granite counters, and stainless-steel appliances.
For anyone who fantasized about hanging out in the Hogwarts Library, this cozy, bookshelf-lined room is a dream come true.
In the master bedroom, find another fireplace and plenty of windows offering views of oak-lined Esplanade Avenue. The master bath has tray ceilings and a deep soaking tub.
A one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest home offers a snug space for out-of-town friends to crash or an avenue for rental income.
