The Most Adorable (and Pricey) New Orleans Cottage We’ve Ever Seen
Not planning to move anytime soon? That’s ok, because there are plenty of gorgeous homes to daydream about, including this charming New Orleans cottage nestled on the city’s historic Bourbon Street. It’s quintessential New Orleans, and it can be found in a quiet, residential area of the Vieux Carre. The structure was built in 1832 and has a spacious floor plan with four bedrooms and four baths across 3,650 square feet. The cottage itself is situated in The French Quarter, just blocks away from Lafitte’s and Café Amelie. It’s not just the cottage, though. There’s also a freestanding, two-story guesthouse topping out at 968 square feet. Close your eyes and imagine yourself on the balcony, which overlooks the charming courtyard and burbling fountain. Then brace yourself, because that’s not all. Just behind the guesthouse is a crystal-clear saltwater pool. Yes. There’s a pool too. It’s a charming cottage compound in the city, just a stone’s throw from the world-class restaurants, art, and entertainment that NOLA is famous for. Oh, and the asking price? A cool $1.99 mil.

You’ll know it when you see it. The yellow facade and lime shutters are hard to miss and easy to love.
The Living Room
Brick walls and a twinkling chandelier give the living room a cozy vibe with touches of ornate elegance.
The Dining Room
The dining room is a lovely bonus—just imagine hosting friends and family here under the glittering chandeliers.
The Living Area
The open design of these two spaces allows for flow between the living room and dining room—which is an ace attribute for entertaining.
The gourmet, eat-in kitchen has plenty of space for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the cream color palette adds coziness and elegance.
The Kitchen (Again)
The islands are put to good use in this space—as is the roomy oven, which is begging for a home chef to put it to work.
The Breakfast Nook
Just off the kitchen is a lovely spot for casual meals. The room itself gets great light from the high doors and ample windows.
The Master Bedroom
The master suite is just upstairs, making the most of the space beneath the cottage’s unique rooflines with a spacious master bath and two large walk-in closets.
The Master Bath
Working with the 19th century architecture, the master bath takes advantage of the sprawling upstairs space by implementing smart design that also manages to maintain a cozy feel.
The Sitting Room
The cottage's trio of second-floor rooms is rounded out by the spacious sitting area (or all-purpose room) just beyond the master bedroom.
The Guest Bedroom
The clean lines of this space are rife with design possibilities. It’s one of two first-floor guest bedrooms (with adjacent baths!) in the main cottage.
The Guest Bath
The guest bath is just off the guest room on the first floor of the cottage.
Exiting the cottage into the courtyard, guests enter a lush, tree-filled space perfect for entertaining.
The Courtyard Landscape
Thoughtful planting choices and a burbling fountain keep the courtyard polished and inviting.
In the space between the cottage and two-story guesthouse, there’s plenty of space for a party.
The Guest House
The balcony-clad guesthouse has ample space for visiting friends and family—and it looks utterly magical in the glow of twilight.
The Color Palette
No one can resist a citrus-inspired orange, lemon yellow, and lime green paint palette.
The Guest House Living Room and Kitchen
An open floor plan design is perfect for the living room and kitchen of the guest house, and the cozy living room has an abundance of exposed brick.
The Guest House Bedroom
The second-floor bedroom in the guest house opens onto the balcony on one side and overlooks the pool on the other.
The Guest House Bath
The guest bath provides all the comforts of a luxury spa.
The Saltwater Pool
This is its own private oasis on Rue Bourbon in the center of the Vieux Carre.
The Saltwater Pool (Again)
The plantings around the pool make it feel like a tropical paradise.
