House of the week: Victorian side-hall on Carondolet

I’ve been feeling a little too extravagant with my house of the week posts lately, so I decided to dial it down a notch this week and look for something more in my price range and something miraculous happened. I fell in love…

While ho-humming my way through some seriously boring homes, I happened upon this one and I swooned. Maybe it’s some kind of funky fate thing because I fell in love with this house before I knew any of the details, just looking at the facade made stars appear in my eyes and violins started playing in my head. I don’t merely want this house…I need this house!

This Victorian side-hall built over a century ago boasts a sweet front porch, heart pine hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, stained glass, transoms, fireplace mantles and 12ft ceilings. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a claw foot tub!), a large brick patio in back shaded by a huge oak and is located a block away from St. Charles Avenue (a.k.a. parade route), not far from The Columns Hotel.

I don’t want to tell you what it’s listed for because it’s a good deal and I don’t want anyone else to buy it out from under me. Hands off…IT’S MINE!

  1. Oh, I fell in love with this one too (except the kitchen and that half-bath), but oh, is that a dreamy house. I'd love it!

    Did you get it? It's already under contract?
