Bright Uptown cottage wants $675K

Converted from a double to a single-family home, this Uptown abode has minimalist leanings and an airy feel

This three-bedroom, three-bathroom home sits on a shady street that its listing describes as “the heart of Uptown.” To be more specific, it occupies a tract of land between St. Charles and Claiborne avenues, a few blocks from Tulane University, practically in the shadow of Ursuline Academy. It’s a quiet, family-centric area that feels as suburban as a neighborhood can while still maintaining an Orleans Parish address.

Similarly, this newly renovated home feels as modern as an antique former double possibly could. The renovation added an on-trend open living area in the rear, where glass double doors and floor-to-ceiling windows provide an airy feel and views of the fenced backyard.

Modern light fixtures illuminate the hardwood floors, and other highlights include marble-trimmed bathrooms and a wet bar. The overall vibe is chic and decidedly minimal. A stark white palette, gray marble, and subway tile combine to create a serene backdrop for an art collection or curvy pastel couch.

The home covers 2,021 square feet, and it also has deep front and back porches, plus parking for two cars. The asking price is $675,000.
