This Historic Creole Cottage was built in the 1840s and possesses all the unique charm of old New Orleans. Let’s visualize your arrival curbside to a brick-paved wooden cottage surrounded by wrought-iron fencing. It is adorned with large shuttered windows, red doors and a breezy porch. The scene is great for an outdoor snowball/po-boy picnic or cool cocktail prior to walking to the nearby art/antiques boutiques only two blocks away at Magazine Street. Imagine the smell of barbecue from the smokehouse only a block away and crepe myrtle flower petals blowing in the breeze( a Garden District classic). Let’s enter the red door and experience a charming French provincial living space with modern amenities.
