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.
