Beads are glinting in the trees; horn riffs are drifting through the air, and a slew of French Quarter condos are on the market—it’s definitely Carnival time in New Orleans. Located less than a block from Bourbon Street’s quieter, residential end and three blocks from Decatur Street, this one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo is a gracious place to recoup during Mardi Gras (or French Quarter Fest, or Jazz Fest, or any other time).
Built in 1870, the Victorian double shotgun has been converted into a handful of condos. This 682-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit spans its front. Twin entrances and floor-to-ceiling windows bring plenty of light and circulation to its open living area, which is bisected by an exposed brick chimney.
The kitchen is petite but elegant thanks to a crystal chandelier and pristine white subway tile, and the bordello-chic bedroom features red walls, crown molding, and another fireplace. There’s also a shared courtyard with a fountain and palm trees—not to mention those two very inviting stoops out front.
The condo asks $379,000.
