Old Algiers is the second-oldest neighborhood in New Orleans—a point of distinction that its collection of Victorian homes and Beaux-Arts libraries reflect. So when Inhab Design+Build developed a new neighborhood called Patterson Point, the goal was to create custom homes that took advantage of the area’s amenities while blending with the surrounding historic architecture.
“Unique homes, the charm of Old Algiers, and close proximity to downtown New Orleans give way to an opportunity where new homeowners can enjoy a safe and relaxed atmosphere along the river’s edge,” said Inhab founder Mike Bertel in a press release.
This home is one of 44 that will comprise the new neighborhood, which sits between a bio-swale greenspace and the Mississippi River Trail bike path. Priced at $439,000, the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home covers 2,050 square feet. Its Greek Revival-inspired facade nods toward the classic double gallery side halls so prominent in New Orleans. Cornices and Spanish cedar doors handmade by Inhab Millworks add to the antebellum appeal, as do the gas lantern, transoms, hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The entry leads to a foyer flanked by an office that could double as a bedroom. Beyond that lies an open living/dining area and kitchen, where floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors admit views of the rear porch and fenced backyard. Upstairs, find three more bedrooms, including a master bedroom suite with its own balcony.
The “Revival” home shown in these photos is under contract, but buyers can have the same structure built on one of Patterson Point’s remaining lots.
