Coliseum Square Galleried Double Townhome

1476 Camp St, New Orleans, LA 70130, USA


Watch the Virtual Tour here!

This 1880’s Galleried Double Townhome is classic New Orleans architecture, beautifully restored and on Coliseum Square Park, the historical elite residential center of the vibrant Lower Garden District.  With nearly all original architectural elements intact, this home is a veritable museum of restored architectural antiques.   All mechanicals in the house are modern (complete electric re-wires, copper plumbing and new drains, gas piping, air conditioning systems, centrally monitored alarm systems), new (2005) Vermont Slate roof.  Just completed exterior/interior painting, floor re-finishing.

1476-8 Camp St has a 3350 sqft “owner’s side” (1478), which is a mirror-image of the 2100 sqft “tenant’s side” (1476) on the first two floors, but also has the entire third floor, the back yard and gated parking.   This makes the property essentially a large family home with all amenities AND a large apartment providing great income from a single unit.  2-story doubles with side stairwells and 2nd floor sidehalls can easily be adapted to taking a portion or all of the second apartment to make a grand single-family home or an even larger owner’s unit.  

This mansion features many opportunities for reconfiguration to today’s lifestyles. Plenty of room for multiple work-at-home offices, in-law suites and play areas. The outbuilding could be converted to an office, art studio, workshop, guest suite or amazing playhouse or hobby room for older children. Coliseum Square across the street affords even more options for fresh air, relaxation and playtime.
