A 100-year-old home on the edge of the French Quarter in Faubourg Marigny boasts Victorian-era charm.
Built in 1919, the recently listed three-bedroom on Burgundy Street is a classic, column-framed camelback. It’s nestled in the vibrant Marigny Triangle off Esplanade Avenue, across the street from neighborhood stalwart Buffa’s and a few blocks from the epicenter of Fat Tuesday’s downtown rambling on Royal Street.
A stout turret-style brick staircase leads to the home’s front door, which opens onto sitting and living rooms separated by dramatic Grecian columns. Built-in bookshelves line a wall against a fireplace in a den or dining area.
The white marble that frames the living room’s original fireplace—one of several in the home—and the pressed tin ceiling in the dining area add to the home’s classic downtown appeal.
A rear kitchen with wide tile floors features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. A short hallway off the kitchen features a staircase leading to the three bedrooms upstairs.
Outside, wood fencing and a rear brick wall surround a private brick-lined patio covered by a tin roof pergola, perfect for planting a lush backyard oasis.
The asking price for the 1,840-square-foot home is $675,000.
