So many historic home renovations miss the mark—adding extraneous elements like wood paneling or disproportionate caged chandeliers. Not this Uptown home’s 2016 refresh, however. Located on a corner lot eight blocks from Audubon Park, the sunny two-bedroom, two-bathroom home feels up-to-date, but not cloyingly so.
Many of the biggest interior trends cohabitate comfortably with original, antique elements. In the kitchen, for example, subway tile, open shelving, and waterfall counters are all present, and an antique mantel with vibrant green tile adds a welcome pop of color and reminds homeowners that this is far from a new construction.
It seems like a home that’s built with comfort, practicality, and elegant efficiency in mind. Spray foam insulation keeps its 1,722 square feet snug and eco-friendly—which can be a challenge, especially in older homes. The bathrooms isn’t showy, but it does count heated floors and a tankless water heater among its thoughtful touches.
Classic New Orleans elements including high ceilings, wood floors, pocket doors, and transoms are all present and accounted for. The cherry on top? A $30,000 price chop.
