Anyone who follows the New Orleans real estate market knows that $499,000 is a steal for a meticulously preserved, circa-1851 Italianate side hall shotgun in the Lower Garden District—and listing agent Jonathan Maki knows that, too. “It’s worth more” he said in an emailed statement.
Both the home’s listing price and the process are a little unusual, and both are designed for efficiency. “We are planning on doing two broker tours (Tuesday and Wednesday) the week of November 17, and then open houses on November 23 and 24,” Maki said. “Then my seller would like a few days to review all offers.”
Located at 2027 Coliseum behind Trinity Church, the 1,750-square-foot abode sits on the former site of the Livaudais plantation, on a lot that’s two blocks from St. Charles Avenue and three blocks from Magazine Street’s cafes, bars, and shops.
The side hall belts a corridor of rooms that includes a double parlor in the very front, where a crystal chandelier, brackets and trim, coved plaster moldings, decorative arches, and heart pine floors preserve its 19th-century charm. Next comes the master bedroom suite, which includes 12-foot ceilings, transoms, and a fireplace.
A den and modern kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, a modern light fixture, and tile backsplash sits behind that, and another bedroom with an ensuite bath is tucked in the rear. Out back, find a deck and raised, landscaped flower beds.
