Built in 1931, this Laurel Street camelback is almost indistinguishable from a new construction, thanks to a to-the-studs renovation in 2011. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom abode retains its grand, oversized proportions (high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows) and boasts the corbels, gas lanterns, and wood floors befitting an early 20th century New Orleans home.
However, its open floor plan and bank of windows and French doors are very up-to-date. This rear wall of mostly glass provides ample natural light to the open den and kitchen, where marble countertops, glass spherical pendant lights, and a tile backsplash provide gloss. The doors open to a deck, which was added within the last few years. Its elegant, fenced front yard includes topiaries and gravel, for an appearance that is as manicured as it is low maintenance.
The master bedroom enjoys access to the front porch, as well as an en suite bathroom with a glass enclosure shower. The 1,720-square-foot abode is a stone’s throw from Whole Foods and Audubon Park in a walkable, parade-adjacent tract of Uptown.
