Even on a regular day, we can’t get enough of French Quarter condos...and during Carnival season, that fandom becomes a frenzy. Which might explain why we’re so smitten with this classic Creole cottage. Built in approximately 1839, the home features brick between post construction—a building method developed by French colonists. The rain- and humidity-resistant strategy stacks bricks between the supporting structure’s wooden post-and-beam frame, then covers the whole shebang with siding or stucco, as seen here.
The interior feels equally rustic and sturdy. Exposed brick walls, brick floors, and rafters enclose the 1,050-square-foot space, which includes one bedroom and one-and-a-half baths. The kitchen overlooks a shared courtyard, and its granite counter/eat-in bar divides the open living area. Upstairs, find a bedroom with wood paneling aplenty—from the window to the walls, as they say. Speaking of that window, it’s a dormer that creates a cozy little nook beside a large (by French Quarter standards) master closet.
Located in the heart of the Vieux Carre, the condo backs up to Cabrini Park and asks $385,000, with $358/month HOA fees.
