House of the week: Double on Annunciation Street

When you don’t have a car, proximity to certain things like grocery stores and laundromats (because you don’t have a washer & dryer either) become quite important, not to mention having a few good restaurants and bars nearby. Well, I just found this super-cute double on Annunciation Street that has all those things going for it…and a bag of chips!

Though the year the house was built is not listed, I’m going to approximate and say somewhere around the 1920’s. Each unit has two bedrooms (about 900 square feet of living space per unit) with hardwood floors, updated kitchens with new appliances, a cute little shared backyard and washer & dryers inside both. Located near the corner of Annunciation and Soniat, this double is only two blocks from a huge Rouses grocery store, two blocks from Domilise’s Po-Boy shop, only about three blocks from Hansen’s Sno-Blitz (mmm, sno-balls) and only seven blocks away from Napoleon Avenue — a.k.a. the beginning of the parade route — and Tipitina’s!

The house is listed at $275,900 which I think is a tad high for the area, but there is owner financing available.    Too bad I can’t even afford that…but I can still dream!
