House of the week: Double on Scott Street

If you squint, you can see me waving through the window.

All I want for Christmas is a house of my own.  Do you think this year you’ll swing it Santa, help me get a loan? As much as I love to rhyme, I’m sure you’ll find it lame. This is a blog, after all, and not a reindeer game!

Stopping there, before it gets ridiculous, I found another house the other day that I’d throw down the cash for this very minute … if I had it. Located in Mid-City less than a block from Canal Street is this lovely four bedroom, two bath double with all the features I covet. It’s got a huge front porch, hardwood floors, fireplace mantles, transoms, floor-to-ceiling windows, high ceilings, pocket doors, two stories and a pretty nice backyard.

As with most of the homes I desire, the location is rather choice. It’s less than a block to Canal Street, which means easy access to the streetcar and a nice spot to hang out for Endymion during Mardi Gras. Plus, the literal cornucopia of good restaurants in the area is staggering with spots like Juan’s Flying Burrito, Mandina’s, Canal St. Bistro and Cafe Minh all within walking distance, and that’s only scratching the surface.

I’m pretty sure Santa has me on his “naughty” list, though so I doubt this beauty listed for $489,000 is in my future. Maybe next year …
