Hidden from street view by slender trees, this Uptown abode presents a rather sweet, shy exterior to the world. The side hall cottage sits on Constance Street, a block away from Magazine Street and a block away from Wisner Park. The long, narrow home has a linear configuration of rooms in its 1,841-square-foot layout.
The entrance leads to a living room, where floor-to-ceiling windows provide views of the porch and petite, brick-paved front yard. That living room connects to a chandelier-hung dining room, which connects to a kitchen, where stained-glass windows lend a splash of color to the otherwise austere palette of white walls, stainless-steel appliances, and gray-veined marble countertops.
Beyond the kitchen, find a den that connects to the home’s most exemplary feature: its patio. There, a grapevine-hung pergola with a wood- or gas-burning fireplace overlooks the stylish, square cocktail pool. A pool house with a kitchenette and full bathroom spans the width of the yard. Together, the pool house and pergola enclose the pool to create an intimate area that blends indoor and outdoor living.
Two bedrooms and two bathrooms are tucked alongside the main house’s shotgun-like procession of living rooms, dining room, and kitchen. Twelve-foot-ceilings and heart pine floors are present throughout.
The home hits the market on November 1 asking $650,000.
