House of the week: "Not really a shotgun" on Olivier
Though the real estate agent or owner keeps calling this house a shotgun, I'm pretty sure it isn't. It is, however, gorgeous and a home I would not mind owning. Located in Algiers Point across the Mississippi River, this beautiful house has got to be from the mid to late 1800's with floor-to-ceiling windows, a cool, classic kitchen and a cute, little parlor in the center of the house. It has original hardwood floors, high ceilings, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a "mudroom" that leads out into a large backyard.
