Location: New Orleans, La.
The Skinny: The section of New Orleans where this six-bedroom Greek Revival home can be found was spared from major flooding during Hurricane Katrina, but the 3,500-square-foot house was recently revamped anyway. Historic details abound and two separate carriage houses, one of which formerly served as a stable, have been converted to residential use, while the rest of the double-wide lot includes a swimming pool and a stone patio. Inside, the original hardwood floors, possibly 150 years old, have been buffed and polished to a sheen that belies their age. Despite all the historic frills, the six-bed, seven-bath property, listed for $1.2M, has a casual side too, like the pinball machine in a carriage house living room.
