Two-story townhouses popped up in the South throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, becoming especially popular in New Orleans and its Uptown neighborhoods.

On Third Street between Magazine and Constance streets, a beautifully renovated example of the classic architectural style was recently listed for $795,000.

The double gallery-style four-bedroom home in the Irish Channel also sits between the dueling barrooms of mainstays Tracey’s and Parasol’s, two neighborhood landmarks in an area that’s essential to the city’s Irish heritage and its annual St. Patrick’s Day celebrations.

Lush greenery surrounds a secluded brick porch with iron railings. Inside, a foyer and hallway with stained glass windows lead to a roomy dining and living area. There are brick touches throughout the home, including in the kitchen, where brick walls surround a marble-topped island, white cabinets, and stainless steel appliances.

On the other side of the first floor, a separate hallway bar area connects the kitchen with the living and dining rooms; there is also a pantry, laundry room, two bathrooms, and a bedroom. In the backyard, an air-conditioned shed (with plumbing) is large enough for a secluded office or art room.

The front foyer continues to a hallway that opens to the kitchen and a wide staircase. Upstairs, a long hall leads to a master bedroom and two additional bedrooms. A black-tiled en suite bathroom in the master bedroom has a white clawfoot tub, and fireplaces throughout the house retain their classic iron covers, reminders of the neighborhood’s storied past in the middle of a thriving present.
