In the Irish Channel, a Greek Revival side hall asks $875K

It’s spare, elegant, and 159 years old

Double gallery Greek Revival side hall with white columns

They often say that old houses have “good bones”—and this circa-1868 abode’s spare elegance feels carved by time itself. A succession of architects and designers have lent their touches to the abode over the years, but it remains an unmuddled example of the Greek Revival side hall. From behind an iron fence, a double gallery overlooks Fourth Street’s live oaks. The side hall connects to a double parlor, where pocket doors divide a sitting area from a dining room. Floor-to-ceiling windows and mantels preside over both.

The clean, simple lines provide contrast for ceiling medallions, which are the only ornamentation in this unstuffy home. Beyond the dining room, find a den and the kitchen, which features a tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances. It opens to a small side porch in the backyard.

Upstairs, find two bedrooms and the master bedroom suite, which includes a sitting room, en suite bathroom, and a balcony. Transoms, high ceilings, and wide plank pine floors are present throughout the 3,666-square-foot home, which sits less than a block from Magazine Street.

The asking price is $875,000.
