1347 Magazine St
New Orleans, LA 70130

$1,599,000Part of the pair of 1830s Creole townhouses owned by the late talent agent Claudia Speicher was renovated and hit the market in early March. The renovation kept some of the original details: the wood floors have been refinished, and there's a wrought iron balcony, two staircases, exposed brick and beams. This townhouse has a decidedly more finished look than its sister home, but has lots of exposed brick, plus a side balcony that overlooks a courtyard.

3. Greek Revival Mansion

1216 Camp St
New Orleans, LA 70130

$1,495,000 Built in 1866, the 5,264 square-foot Greek Revival mansion boasts original floors, grand rooms, original fireplaces, high ceilings, ornate crown moldings, and ceiling medallions. There's also a courtyard and "ample" off-street parking. The last time the home was on the market was 2011, when it was asking $759,000.

4. Renovated Townhouse, 1351 Magazine St.

1351 Magazine St
New Orleans, LA 70130

$1,399,000The three-story, 4,500 square-foot townhouse was first of the pair to be gloriously restored after years of neglect. The space has exposed walls, hardwood floors, balconies with original ironwork, and original floor-to-ceiling windows.

5. French Quarter-Style Townhouse

1350 Camp St
New Orleans, LA 70130

$1,200,000Built in 1865, the 2,227 square-foot two-bedroom was renovated in 2014. Historic details like the ornate plaster crown molding remain, but the renovation added contemporary touches like a minimalist soaking tub, chic lighting, sleek fireplaces and some clever storage. Tall windows, balconies and a courtyard with fountain give a French Quarter feel but closer to Coliseum Square.

6. Victorian 4-br.

1452 Magazine St
New Orleans, LA 70130

$899,000The 140-year-old home has 14-foot ceilings downstairs, heart of pine floors, a grand double parlor and a balcony.

1026 Melpomene St
New Orleans, LA 70130

$695,000Once a blighted masonry structure that was the frequent subject of neighborhood complaints, the building got a stylish renovation. Renovated by owner/architect William Rosenthal, the home mixes clean, modern lines with an industrial look. The home is filled with windows, flooding the space with natural light, and there is a mezzanine that would make an ideal office space. Upstairs, the minimalist master bathroom includes a swampy green distressed clawfoot tub. A back balcony provides even more views of the city. There's also a big backyard and off-street parking.

Architectural details include a large covered front porch, original hardwood floors, 14-foot ceilings upstairs, a grand foyer entry, chandeliers, transoms, and a wrought iron spiral staircase.
