House of the week: Side Hall on Aline Street
There seems to be no shortage of gorgeous homes in New Orleans and I just discovered yet another beauty. Over on Aline Street is this elegant Victorian Side Hall featuring all that I love about local architecture including a large front porch, a double parlor with pocket doors, high ceilings, transoms, ceiling medallions, hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen has been wonderfully renovated while still retaining an exposed brick fireplace, lovely bathrooms with wainscoting, two walk-in closets in the master bedroom, a quaint, well-manicured backyard and an indoor spa.
The house couldn't be better located, only 1/2 block away from Magazine Street and about 5 blocks to St. Charles Avenue. Also, it's mere steps from Martin Wine Cellar and Mahony's Po-Boys, plus only a few blocks from restaurants like Lilette and Baru Bistro & Tapas. Although anything is out of my price range right now, I do think this beauty is overpriced, seeing as it's a two-bedroom home being listed for $625,000. I just gotta keep on dreaming!
