In the French Quarter, an attic condo with a courtyard pool asks $215K

Come to the Quarter for Southern Decadence, stay for the 19th-century charm

Two side-by-side three-story townhomes with iron balconies face a street with two parked cars.
The condo sits at the very top floor of this Creole townhouse.

This Labor Day weekend, an estimated 300,000 Southern Decadence attendees will descend on New Orleans—and it’s almost guaranteed that a handful will fall in love with the French Quarter and never want to leave. Fortunately, a reasonably priced condos are on the market, including this little number at 824 Burgundy Street.

It occupies the charmingly austere attic space of a rather tony Creole townhouse built in the 1830s. Consequently, it enjoys access to opulent shared areas in the residence (a formal entry hall with a crystal chandelier, a brick courtyard with pool). But it clocks in at $273 per square foot—far cheaper than the $356 per square foot price tag another unit in the building sold for in 2016.

The 787-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit has vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, exposed brick walls, and mantels. Half walls delineate sleeping, living, and office areas in the open floor plan while providing a sense of spaciousness.

There also are three closets tucked in the lowest-ceilinged corners. Dormer windows provide light and sweeping downtown views. In the kitchen, find stainless-steel appliances and a dishwasher, and in the bathroom, a glass enclosure shower and granite counters bring a note of luxury.

Sold partially furnished, the condo asks $215,000, and condo fees are $441/month.
