Happy Mardi Gras!
Fat Tuesday brings us this jaw-droppingly beautiful historic listing on Decatur street in New Orleans’ famed French Quarter. (It’s the second townhouse from the right with the sage green shutters.)
Have a look inside this marvelously maintained “Creole style” townhome!
This is the entrance & stairwell on the backside of the building.
The dwelling has four stories in total, each accessed by this staircase or an elevator.
1235 Decatur Street in New Orleans, Louisiana was built in 1831.
Although updated, it still retains a great deal of original character such as wood floors, exposed brick, fanlight transoms, French doors, and original door knobs & locks:
It has 3 bedrooms & 3.5 bathrooms in over 5,000 square feet.
It has not one – but 2 kitchens (one on the 1st floor and one on the 3rd floor)!
This way, you only have to go up or down one flight of stairs for your midnight snack.
The townhouse underwent a full restoration in 2014.
Have a look outside on one of the deep balconies:
It almost looks like a balcony in Paris!
The bedrooms are ginormous…
Each has its own fireplace and ensuite bath.
It took House Crazy Sarah a minute to realize that cube thing was actually the toilette. 🙂
Look at the cute dormer office room:
The building even has a “pedestrian passageway”…
Plus it has an “Intimate rear courtyard with cocktail pool“…
A cocktail pool! How fun!
Price for all this Mardi Gras magic?
House Crazy Sarah can already envision the wealthy revelers hanging off the balcony in their colorful beads!
