Sophisticated French Quarter condo wants $573K

The stylishly renovated abode sits in a 19th-century building with a great balcony

A three-story red building with iron balconies and lush trailing vines faces a French Quarter street.
The third-floor balcony could be yours.

Although the French Quarter is just about one square mile of real estate, it’s comprised of many micro-neighborhoods. Bourbon Street has a completely different energy than the more sedate, elegant neighboring Royal Street, for example. And while the lower part of the Vieux Carre is considered more residential, the truth is that historic buildings from Canal Street to Esplanade Avenue house both retail space and apartments.

This condo’s location at 520 St. Philip Street hits a sweet spot—it’s right by Decatur Street, for easy navigating in and out of the Quarter. And it’s close enough to Jackson Square, the original city center, to enjoy proximity to most of the Quarter’s amenities while avoiding the heaviest tourist traffic.

The 1,069-square-foot condo sits on the third floor of a masonry building constructed in 1835, according to records from The Historic New Orleans Collection. Its slim footprint places two shoebox-shaped bedrooms parallel to a similarly long and narrow living area. Both the master bedroom and the den have French doors that open to the deep, St. Philip Street-facing balcony. Alternately, the master bedroom could be used as a second living area, as shown in the photos below. Both bedrooms have brick fireplaces, and the exposed brick motif carries over to the living area.

There, you’ll find a modern open floor plan, thanks to a 2011 renovation. A kitchen with white cabinetry and granite countertops overlooks the living room, which includes track lighting and wooden floors. In addition to the balcony, the condo has access to a 1,500-square-foot rooftop deck with panoramic views.

The asking price is $573,000.
