What $500,000 buys in New Orleans right now

Homes in five neighborhoods

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Today’s price: $500,000 (or thereabouts). Vote for your favorite below.

Renovated in 2010, this roomy Mid-City double has a classic look, thanks to stained glass, wood floors, high ceilings, and transoms. There’s also a porch and balcony spanning its width. Each side is roughly 1,500 square feet and has three bedrooms and two baths. The asking price is $585,000.

Clocking in slightly under budget at $498,000, this luxury one-bedroom condo in the CBD has panoramic city views and 11-foot ceilings. Chestnut wood floors and exposed brick give the 1,265-square-foot condo a rustic, loft-like feel. The furniture is included in the price.

Traditional on the outside, contemporary on the inside, this renovated Craftsman cottage in Uptown is as cool as it gets. Exposed brick and beams and vaulted ceilings are present throughout the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home, which covers 2,240 square feet. With its soaking tub and separate rainfall shower, the master bathroom is the pièce de résistance. It’s asking $499,000.

This graceful Spanish-style home in Fontainebleau features arched windows, wooden floors, and a stucco exterior. The kitchen’s granite countertops, wine cooler, and stainless-steel appliances are handy for entertaining, as is the generous yard. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home asks $499,000.

This four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom condo is located in Mid-City’s new 37Hundred condo building, which faces Bienville Street and is about a block away from the Lafitte Greenway. It’s an uncharacteristically tony building for the neighborhood. Each unit comes with a private two-car garage, balconies, and luxe finishes including hardwood floors and quartz countertops. The 2,140-square-foot unit asks $499,999.
