House of the week: Shotgun Sidehall on Plum Street
Now, you know I love old homes and the buildings in New Orleans are truly a beauty to behold, but there is one gorgeous specimen that just went on the market -- in my 'hood no less -- that I'm jonesing for in a big way. Only three short blocks away on Plum Street lies a beautifully restored Shotgun Sidehall featuring three bedrooms, two full baths, heart pine hardwood floors, high ceilings, fireplaces in the bedrooms, original light fixtures, claw foot tubs, a huge kitchen with brand new appliances and a walk-in closet in the master bedroom.
This lovely house has 1500 square feet of living space, is going for $259,000and it qualifies for First Time Home Buyers financing with as little as 3.5% down. The cool thing about this listing is the video walk-through that lets you really see what is being offered without moving your butt from your office chair.
