Purchased by T. Bussy Holdings less than a year ago for $98,000 and listed for $499,000, according to records from the Orleans Parish assessor’s office, this Victorian double maintains its multi-family footprint while devoting the bulk of its square footage to the owner’s unit.
A clever renovation gave each unit a street-facing front door, which is consistent with a traditional shotgun floor plan. The smaller rental unit features an open kitchen/living area, a bathroom, and a bedroom.
By contrast, the expansive owner’s unit spans the entire length of the shotgun, and it also spans its entire rear width. The shotgun’s first three rooms are devoted to a dining room, kitchen, and living room. From there, a short hallway connects the three bedrooms and two-and-half bathrooms that comprise the entire rear half of the home.
The renovation brings a pristine, all-white palette to the home’s exterior and interior, which also features 12-foot ceilings, exposed beams, wood floors, and quartzite countertops. The 2,214-square-foot abode sits in Bywater on a block directly south of St. Claude Avenue.
