This stunning Victorian historic home is an example of 19th century vernacular architecture. It originally served as the "Maude Suter's private girls school" in the late 1800's. You will find an open floor plan, high ceilings, colonial columns and deep porches that takes you back in time. In this home, there were two types of flooring removed from the 2nd floor to expose the original random width tongue and grove heart pine floors. Back in 2002, this property was totally restored under the strict guidance of the historic Architectural Review Board. New mechanics such as wiring, plumbing, insulation, were installed while meticulously preserving the beauty and history of this home. You can still find the original Italian marbles from the early 1900's surrounding two of the seven fire places. Mantel in family room is made from original heart pine beam of the home. Downstairs hallway shelves, mantels, and accent pieces above the kitchen are made from the original stair treads of the home. The kitchen pantry is original to the home. As you walk through the hallway, you will see shelves with exposed bricks. In addition, it also comes with a cozy detached two bedrooms one bath furnished "Carriage House" apartment. This can be a mother in-law suite or used as income-generating property. In the past, this has been an Air B & B and short term rental property. An original old "horse stable" stands right next to the courtyard. This charming courtyard used to be part of the arpent lots or gardens way back in the 1700-1800's. This property is zoned residential and commercial. Great downtown location. One block away from shops, restaurants, Mardi Grass Parades, and Spring Music Festival. Comes with a one year home warranty. (Buyers to verify square footage and dimensions.) Check out this link for more beautiful video pictures of the house. https://www.tourbuzz.net/1602516?idx=1
