House of the week: Cottage on Chippewa Street
Just recently I spotted this house on Chippewa Street in the Irish Channel. It's a cute two bedroom, one bath cottage with hardwood floors, high ceilings and about 1100 square feet of living space. One of the best things about this house is the lush little courtyard in the back with a little footpath leading to a small stone table hidden among the palm trees. It's also located in a prime area only five blocks from Magazine Street and the gorgeous Garden District, not to mention a bunch of great shops, bars and restaurants, including Coquette.
In the listing description, it says "With a little work, could be your perfect hide-away!" What does that mean exactly? Re-sanding the floors or a complete over-haul of the plumbing? If it was small stuff, this little cottage could definitely be worth the effort at only $195,000.
Would you buy this fixer-upper?
