In New Orleans, the median list price per square foot is $215, according to a recent report from Zillow. A price of $237 per square foot is slightly higher than the median, so it could logically follow that this price point will net a buyer a pleasant, if quotidian, Orleans Parish home.
However, in this instance, that figure will net you something quite extraordinary: a side hall Victorian on a leafy Uptown street, one block off St. Charles Avenue. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home sits on a fenced lot with a large side yard, and it is flanked with balconies. You’ll find a classic double gallery overlooking Peniston, plus a side porch spanning the length of the home.
Inside, the 3,688-square-foot abode’s Victorian roots manifest themselves in the double parlor, 11-foot ceilings, pocket doors, crown molding, crystal chandeliers, and stained-glass windows by the stairwell. The rear of the house feels considerably less formal, thanks to a family den and sunroom lined with French doors with arched transoms.
Upstairs, find three bedrooms, including the master, plus a study. Up-to-date bathrooms include glass enclosure showers and tile floors. At $875,000, this Victorian packs a lot of grandeur and square footage into its six-figure price tag.
