This is the last condo of 7 units in the Danny barker House Condos located at 1027 Chartres Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Its a couple of blocks from Jackson Square on one of the demanded streets in the French Quarter. These units are one of the few examples of a historic renovation that is basically new Construction.
The building was gutted and redone by Mark Fusiler in one of the best renovations that I have seen to date. The National Park Service approved it as a historic renovation. Its all new but its made to look old. Its very hard to find a courtyard like this with only seven units.
Below is the view from condo A that runs from the front of the building onto this price courtyard. There are three fire places, two sets of French Doors that are on the alley and this fantastic view of the courtyard. The 13 foot ceilings, wood and tile floors, natural light make this unit that is under a 1000 sq. ft. seem much larger. Its a two bedroom and two bath condo. The hall is on one side, the alley on the other and the courtyard on the rear.
The unit is furnished and priced at $535,000. The unit comes with appliances, full size washer and dryer, granitecounters, custom cabinets, new doors and windows, new floors, new wiring, new plumbing, security system in each unit, new a/c-heat, and much more. The bricks are old and that is about all. New Construction carries a premium and once you see this unit you will know why. Reasonable condo fees of under $400 per month.
In the end its all about location and condition and this unit has both. You will need to check this unit out before it gets sold. Has been on the market since Mid February 2013.
