A subdivision of Gentilly, Milneburg started out life as a swamp, and was purchased by Scottish developer Alexander Milne, who gave the tract of marshy land his name and connected it to the Marigny via a five-mile rail corridor. Thanks to its proximity to Lake Pontchartrain, Milneburg served as a commercial port throughout the 1800s, and later it became a lake resort and site of the fabled, “ain’t dere no more” Pontchartrain Beach.
Today, the area is home to the University of New Orleans, as well as Square 9, a collection of new constructions built by Avant Garde. Clustered on Music and Arts streets, the three- and four-bedroom homes sit on oversized lots. This three-bedroom, two-bathroom home loosely follows a center hall footprint: a central hall divides the one-story space, placing an open living area, dining area, and kitchen on one side, and three bedrooms on the other. A mudroom sits behind the kitchen an opens to a rear porch and fenced backyard.
Luxe finishes—wood floors, mosaics, marble counter tops—are present throughout the 1,798-square-foot home. The asking price is $335,000.
