Fruit trees, a sun room, vintage appeal, and plenty of access to green space

It’s hard to imagine a more idyllic place to live than this stretch of Joseph Street. Nestled between the bustling entertainment corridor of Freret Street and the efficient transportation artery of Claiborne Avenue, the shady, quiet street manages feel both secluded and very much in the middle of things.

This graceful Craftsman cottage sits catty-corner to a triangular neutral ground-cum-green space that serves as a play spot for neighborhood kids or an overflow parking lot, depending on the day. There’s also a fenced back yard with a pergola and work shed, shaded by palms and made fragrant by lemon, orange, and fig trees.

The home’s 1,718-square-foot interior is equally charming. Its long, narrow footprint resembles that of a double shotgun: a stack of three bedrooms on the right side, a living room, dining room, and kitchen on the left. In the front, find a sunroom and porch spanning the full width.

Cheery, light-soaked vibes continue throughout the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home, thanks to ample windows and transoms. Wood floors, original bathroom tile, a clawfoot tub, a window seat, and brick mantels bring the charm.

The asking price is $499,000.
