Add this to our list of French Quarter dream spots: an opulent single-family home that includes not only a brick courtyard, but also a 300-square-foot rooftop terrace with cityscape views. The home’s outdoor living options are remarkable, especially considering its location in the dense, historic Vieux Carre—and its 3,456-square-foot interior is equally expansive.
A bank of transom-topped French doors spans the home’s open living area, which features 17-foot ceilings and abundant natural light. A large brick fireplace presides over the den, where the wood paneling and industrial fans give things a gothic loft vibe. The kitchen is dominated by a copper range hood, and it also features slate floors, brick walls, and exposed ceiling beams.
The home has two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, one of which features a glass enclosure shower and a soaking tub. There’s also a walk-in closet. If you’re going to live large in the French Quarter, this is definitely the way to do it.
