Perched a block off Esplanade Avenue at the intersection of Barracks and Dauphine streets, catty-corner to Cabrini Park, this $2,175,000 property feels more like a small compound than a cottage.
It includes the dormered main house, a brick courtyard, off-street parking, and a two-story, detached guest house. Separately metered, this guest house could be used for rental income via a longterm tenant (keep in mind that short-term rentals are prohibited everywhere in the French Quarter except for a strip of Bourbon Steet).
The renovated Creole cottage has high ceilings and plenty of light, thanks to medallion-flanked chandeliers, transoms, fan windows, and original French doors. A gas fireplace with the original mantel provides warmth and period charm, as do the kitchen’s exposed brick arches. Highlights of the kitchen include a Viking range, wine fridge, and mirrored backsplash.
The first floor bedroom suite has a bathroom with a glass enclosure shower, and the second floor master suite features a soaking tub and a walk-in shower tucked into a dormer window space.
That window overlooks the courtyard, which includes an original well. It connects the main house to the two-bedroom, two-bathroom guest house, where you’ll find a downstairs kitchen and living area with a spiral staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms.
