This Creole French Provincial manse sits in the heart of Uptown, within a stone’s throw of its best attractions: Audubon Park, Magazine Street, and St. Charles Avenue are all a few blocks away. Neighbors take advantage of their prime parading-viewing addresses: they “shut down (the block) for Halloween and Mardi Gras and throw the best parties in the city,” according to the listing.
That’s a pretty big claim, but the 3,347-square-foot home does seem conducive to entertaining. There’s a lovely brick-paved courtyard, shaded by palm tress, that looks ready for cocktail parties, and it backs up to a one-bedroom, one-bathroom carriage house with a kitchenette—a good place to tuck tired guests or a live-in nanny.
The main house was built in 1919. Its first floor consists of a formal dining room and living area hemmed by a side hall and punctuated by fireplaces. A more casual and contemporary open living area and kitchen sits at the rear of the house, overlooking the backyard. Fireplaces, chandeliers, transoms, high ceilings, and hardwood floors are present throughout the home. Upstairs, find three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, plus a street-facing balcony.
The asking price is $1,150,000.
