A lavish, 2,700-square-foot home lurks behind the humble, shuttered facade of this circa-1830s Creole cottage, which sits a block from the Rampart Street streetcar line. A side door leads to a slate foyer with a sweeping curved staircase. To the left, find a double parlor, where highlights include antique chandeliers, wide pine flooring, and floor-to-ceiling windows that provide views of Burgundy Street.
Beyond that sits a marble-trimmed kitchen with stainless steel appliances and an original mantel. It faces a dining room with plaster medallions. Upstairs, find a two bedrooms, including a dormered master, and a bathroom with exposed brick walls and a glass enclosure shower.
There are two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms in the main house, and beyond the brick courtyard, there’s a carriage house one bedroom and one bathroom. In the balcony-wrapped carriage house, a kitchen and living room sit on the first floor; a bedroom with exposed beams and a bathroom with a clawfoot tub occupy the second floor.
Highlights of the landscaped brick courtyard include a lion head wall fountain, Bevolo gas lanterns, and a saltwater pool. The asking price is $1,495,999.
