It’s Mardi Gras season! So House Crazy Sarah is loving on this New Orleans Creole-style shotgun house.
If you look closely at the roof line, you can see there is actually a partial second floor on this house.
Locals call this a “mother-in-law suite under-roof”. House Crazy Sarah calls it Granny’s Attic!
The house on Lavergne Street in New Orleans is currently listed for sale at $535,000.
It’s a lot larger than it looks from the street with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in a whopping 3,885 square feet.
Let’s have a look inside…
No gaudy Mardi Gras baubles here… just classy southern decor.
Curiously, there are two front doors and two dining rooms. The house seems to be split right down the middle with “shotgun” passages on both sides.
This home has the original hardwood floors which have been carefully refinished.
The kitchen has been completely – but again, elegantly – remodeled.
Beyond the kitchen, there is a family room (and you can see the stairs to the attic flat).
Out the back door is the charming backyard:
Back inside, a peaceful sitting/dressing room:
One of the bathrooms with a vintage sink:
Have a look at the main floor bedrooms:
Upstairs is Granny’s Attic!
You could actually fit a couple of grannies in here!
