Circa-1820 Creole townhouse asks $1.4M

It’s truly a French Quarter dream home

After a full renovation that took this townhouse down to its brick walls and beamed ceilings, everything from the plumbing and electrical systems to the kitchen appliances is new. But look at the stainless-steel stove tucked in an antique brick fireplace or the clawfoot tub framed by patches of weathered plaster, and you’ll be reminded one that yes, this indeed is a 200-year-old home.

More specifically, it’s two 200-year-old homes. A narrow two-story guest house (kitchen and living area downstairs, bedroom and bathroom upstairs) with a courtyard-facing balcony lies behind the main house. There, you’ll find a dining and living room on the first floor, a bedroom and balconied living room (with a wet bar!) on the second floor, and a master bedroom-bathroom suite on the third.

Twelve-foot ceilings, crystal chandeliers, fireplaces, and French doors lend the home a sense of opulence. It’s less than a block from the Rampart streetcar line and Armstrong Park, and it’s asking $1,399,000.
