A three-bedroom condo in a 19th-century French Quarter building wants $799K

The circa-1869 Creole townhome overlooks leafy Esplanade Avenue

Lined with sophisticated side halls and historically significant residences, Esplanade Avenue is an oak-shaded thoroughfare that connects the French Quarter, Bayou St. John, and City Park. This circa-1869 Creole townhome sits at 604 Esplanade Avenue, equidistant from lower Decatur Street’s attractions as well as those of the Marigny Triangle. It was renovated in 2016 and divided into four condos, three of which are on the market. Today, we’ll take a look inside the largest of the bunch: Unit No. 3, a three-bedroom, three-bathroom unit that covers two 1,854 square feet.

All four units have access to a an elephant ear-lined, brick courtyard that perfectly accommodates a long, narrow dining table. The condo also has an entertaining-centric open floor plan, where an open living area includes a kitchen with stainless steel appliances and an eat-in bar. There’s also a chandelier and a fireplace, plus transoms and hardwood floors.

Each of the two master bedrooms has its own en-suite bath. One feels rustic and homey, thanks to eaved ceilings, exposed beams, and brick walls, while the other is decidedly luxe, with a crystal chandelier and mantel. Both bathrooms feature marble-trimmed glass enclosure showers.

The asking price is $799,000.
