House of the week: Altered shotgun on General Taylor
For quite some time now, there's been this listing for a house on General Taylor that looks like a remodeled single shotgun. From the photos, it looks super-cute on the inside with two bedrooms, high ceilings, hardwood floors, claw foot tub and a fabulously renovated kitchen. Also, this house apparently comes with a swimming pool! There is no information as to whether the pool is an in-ground or above-ground type, but any kind of pool would make me a happy camper.
Aside from the pool (did I mention it has a pool?), this cute little house is only one block from Magazine Street and only six blocks from St. Charles Avenue. Yep, another affordable find within walking distance of the main Mardi Gras parade route. YES!
The house is going for $217,000 which seems about right considering the amenities (A POOL!). I'd really, really dig living here, been wishing on a star for a financial windfall...where's that damn cricket when you need one?
