The French Quarter is New Orleans’ oldest and most expensive neighborhood, but homeowners who seek its densely urban layout, historic appeal, and walkability can find those same attributes in the neighboring Marigny Triangle. In some ways, the Marigny Triangle is superior to the French Quarter: sandwiched between the Vieux Carre and the trending Bywater, it enjoys proximity to both amenities in both neighborhoods.
This 144-year-old abode sits on Chartres Street between Esplanade Avenue and the most club-dense stretch of Frenchmen Street, about two block from Crescent Park’s westernmost entrance. Housed in what appear to be former slave quarters, the 1,320-square foot abode places the den, dining room, laundry room, and kitchen on first floor. The second and third floor are accessed by a rustic spiral staircase, and both include a bedroom, sitting room, and bathroom.
The home’s exposed bricks and beams, wood floors, French doors, and fireplaces remind visitors that this is very much a late 19th-century home. There’s even a widow’s walk on the third floor, plus a slate courtyard with a fountain. According to records from the assessor’s office, the property has never been offered for public sale.
It’s asking $675,000.
