An airy new construction by the Fair Grounds hits the market for $499K

You can hear Jazz Fest headliners from the porch

Though its lantern, balcony, and large windows help it fit in with the city’s antique homes, this abode is brand new—so new, in fact, that Google Maps shows nothing but grass and a port-o-let on the fenced lot where the 1,776-square-foot home now stands.

The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom new construction checks off 2019’s biggest trends. Its front door leads to an open living area that spans the entirety of the first floor. In an unconventional move, the dining area sits near the entrance, and the living area is in the rear, overlooking the backyard deck. A kitchen with quartz countertops, pendant lights, stainless-steel appliances, and a perky black-and-white tile backsplash sits in between. Ten-foot ceilings and reclaimed wood flooring create the proportions and patina of a much older home.

A flight of stairs hugs the wall and leads to the upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms. The master has a balcony, where floor-to-ceiling windows admit views of neighboring shotgun homes. Trendy barn doors conceal a closet, and the glossy white bathroom has a soaking tub, glass enclosure shower, and a double vanity.

The listing points out that this new construction’s layout is great for entertaining, and so is its location, which lends itself to Jazz Fest after-parties. The asking price is $499,000.
