House of the week: Creole Townhouse on Esplanade
This stunning, four story Creole Townhouse was built circa 1834 and is located on the edge of the French Quarter on the corner of tree-lined Esplanade Avenue and Chartres Street. As you can see, it has two wraparound, wrought iron galleries, five bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths, hardwood floors, high ceilings and it includes a carriage house in the back. Architectural details include elaborate ceiling medallions, arched and floor-to-ceiling windows, an elegant, modern kitchen and a library! Yes...I said a library. Click here and take the virtual tour and see if this property doesn't have you drooling on the keyboard in envy.
By the way, this house is being sold for the bargain basement price of $1,695,000...
