Circa-1890 sidehall camelback brings ‘New Orleans charm’

The elegant Marigny home is replete with stained glass and original mantels

This month, the City Planning Commission issued a report recommending stricter regulations on short-term rental licenses—and it already appears to be affecting the residential real estate market. Case in point: this undeniably gorgeous, 127-year-old side hall camelback in the Marigny has hit the market.

With its 13-foot ceilings, stained glass, clawfoot tub, and balcony, it’s the quintessential New Orleans home, ready to fulfill every Interview with the Vampire-type fantasy. And that’s exactly what it has been doing as a $350/night short-term rental. The 2,448-square-foot property was transferred to Marigny Interests LLC in 2017, according to records from the Orleans Parish assessor’s office, and licensed as a short-term rental.

Now, it seems that the stunning three-bedroom, two-and-half bathroom abode is poised to return to its original use as a single-family home. It was updated in 2011 and again in 2017, according to its Airbnb listing, and bears the all-white interior that’s a hallmark of so many newer constructions. In some cases, the monochromatic look can feel uninspired, but here, it’s a great counterpoint to the home’s colorful stained glass, tile work, and 19th-century patina.

There’s a formal dining room, a pocket door-framed living room, a den with a handsome wet bar, and a decked-out kitchen. Stained glass, tile work, and original mantels are present throughout the home. Bathrooms feature vessel sinks and glass enclosure showers.

For $849,000, this historic, bed-and-breakfast-caliber home can be yours.
