Originally a double shotgun, 708 Opelousas Avenue has been converted into a spacious single-family home.
This is absolutely old New Orleans with all that implies. 12′ ceilings, pockets doors, a parlor, hardwood floors, plaster arches, four decorative fireplaces, and so much more. Not a run-of-the-mill generic home, 708 Opelousas is a good feeling house!
Fantastic curb appeal will catch your eye immediately, with a wrought iron front fence and gate that are shaded by splendid live oaks that line the street. The gingerbread details, working shutters, transom window above the front door, and enchanting front porch all beckon you in for a closer look.
There’s a spacious living and dining combination with sizable windows that provide a lovely view of the porch and the Avenue. Divided by the original brick fireplaces with detailed mantles, the room adjoins the formal parlor (haven’t you always wanted to ask someone to join you in the parlor?) hiding behind working pocket doors on one side and opens to the kitchen on the other.
