The second-oldest neighborhood in New Orleans, Algiers Point sits on the west bank of the Mississippi River, a five-minute ferry ride from the French Quarter. For some locals, that physical and psychic distance from the downtown area is a detriment. But longtime Algiers Point residents savor the slower pace of life and cityscape views this separation brings.
This renovated Eastlake Victorian shotgun single is on the market for $250,000. A 2019 renovation cleverly preserved the linear footprint while creating privacy (e.g., it’s not necessary to walk through someone’s bedroom to get to the bathroom). The front entrance leads to a living room and dining room divided by pocket doors.
From there, a short hallway has been carved from the third room. The remainder of that room’s square footage is devoted to a bedroom. Next, find a kitchen with a side door leading to outside. The very rear of the house is comprised of a bedroom and bathroom, each opening to the kitchen.
The home’s renovation is similarly sensitive to the home’s 19th-century roots, preserving its wood floors, high ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Out back, there’s a semi-circular deck overlooking a fenced backyard. The 1,1,62-square-foot home is a 12-minute walk from the Algiers Ferry Terminal and two blocks from the Mississippi River levee trail.
