House of the week: Victorian on St. Thomas Street

Throughout all this dreaming and admiration of big, four bedroom (or more) houses with guest cottages and swimming pools, it all comes down to one simple thing; I want to own my own home. It doesn’t have to be a grand mansion with exquisite architectural details, with stain glass windows and soaring ceilings. I don’t need sprawling grounds, state-of-the-art appliances and antique chandeliers. Sure, all that would be nice, but what would I do with such a place? Me, John and Pippin would be lost in something so massive, using two to three rooms of the house at most on a regular basis.

No. What I really want is a little place to call my own. A small house with maybe two or three bedrooms and a cute backyard. A house exactly like this…
Located on St. Thomas Street in the Irish Channel, this adorable, unassuming little property offers high ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, exposed-brick fireplaces, a lovely galley kitchen, recessed ceilings, marble tile and a small, gated yard perfect for a frolicking, little shih-tzu and maybe a crawfish boil or two. It has two bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms and is a little over 1,000 square feet. Plus, it’s only five blocks from Magazine Street (four from Parasol’s) which mean access to Coquette, Joey K’s, Sucre, La Divina Gelateria and the glory of the Garden District. This little (nearly accessible) dream is listed for only $237,000. Maybe it’s time to buy…
