Three condos are up for grabs in this circa-1834 Creole townhome at the edge of the French Quarter on Esplanade Avenue—and at $384,000, this 770-square-foot unit is the most affordable of the bunch. Real estate agents always advise clients to buy the worst house in the best neighborhood, and although this condo is far (very far) from being the worst of anything, its proximity to larger, more expensive units does mean that it enjoys amenities associated with a higher price point, including a brick courtyard and large windows that overlook Esplanade Avenue’s live oaks.
Unit 101’s other highlights include crown molding, transoms, crystal chandeliers, wood floors, and two marble fireplaces. The home combines the 19th- and 21st centuries’ most on-trend layouts: a double foyer divided by pocket doors connects to an open kitchen. From behind the kitchen’s quartz countertops, one views a long, uninterrupted visit of chandeliers and transoms.
The single bathroom in the one-bedroom condo is decidedly sleek and modern, thanks to its clean lines and stainless-steel water tower with a rainfall head. Dogs and cats are welcome in the building, and the nearby Crescent Park and Washington Square Park make it easy to walk them.
