Fabulous and Rare find in Spanish Town! Known as one of the Brousseau cottages, the owners meticulously and lovingly restored the home all the while preserving its unique history. From the original “real” wood floors, authentic textured plaster walls, original cypress wainscoting and millwork to the new natural black honed granite countertops, Italian Carrara marble floors and Robert Abbey Lighting. The interior design makes you feel like you have stepped back in time! Top of the line stainless steel appliances grace the kitchen as well as full-size stackable washer and dryer. The original bathtub was also restored! What a bonus, there is parking available for four cars in the driveway! Just steps away from the State Capitol, the Capitol lakes, Governor’s Mansion and Arsenal Park! The electrical, plumbing and mechanical are all new and the seller has permits and inspection reports. This is a must-see for those who have been waiting to get downtown. Keep in mind, when you look at 927 N 7th St. at the top of a small hill with one of the largest backyards in Spanish Town overlooking Arsenal Park and the State Capitol, she is 100 years old this year. From the foundation up, this house was restored to its original character of 1918. With old pictures and assistance from the local Historic Preservation Commission, we found that many of the original characteristics had either been removed or changed. The guidelines set forth by the Louisiana Division of Historic Preservation and the United States Department of Interior were meticulously followed forming a wonderful creation of the past with the present. In 2013, the Foundation for Historical Louisiana bestowed the Phoenix Preservation Award for the “rescue and adaptive restoration” of 927 N 7th St. along with 4 other adjacent homes, “in making the past known and useful to the present”. Bonus area is an office now and could be a nursery or master closet. 12' Private Servitude of Access.
