Built in 1831, this masonry abode sits by the intersection of Royal Street and Governor Nicholls, in a relatively quiet, more residential end of the French Quarter. (Having said that, ghost tour guides do frequently stop at the intersection to lecture about the neighboring LaLaurie Mansion.) The 4,010-square-foot dwelling contains five apartments, according to records from the Orleans Parish assessor’s office, and it could be used for “single family, apartments, or condo,” the listing says.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom townhouse has living spaces that range from luxe to basic. Wood floors, brick walls, exposed box beams, and other rustic original touches are present throughout.

With its French door-framed balcony overlooking Royal Street and a paved limestone courtyard, the home has outstanding outdoor living areas.

The asking price is $1,475,000.
