The restoration of the intricate wood work is simply stunning. Home also includes an extended driveway and 2 car garage.
The Kuhn house built in 1883 with a gorgeous Steamboat wrap around porch and has been featured on HGTV and Old House Magazine. Painted in the original colors.
Favorite room is this living area in the back near the kitchen added in 2002 using reclaimed materials. The fireplace and the abundant daylight are so inviting you don't want to leave. A back porch and private courtyard style backyard await thru the double glass doors.
Old 6th Ward is a delightful historic neighborhood with renovated homes on the edge of downtown. So close you can walk to the Thanksgiving Day parade downtown. Also numerous eateries within walking distance including Decatur just a couple blocks away, Henderson and Kane, BB Butchers, and 3 craft breweries.
Original front windows have been crafted to match original jib windows and they can be completely opened up for great breezes. You can even step inside they are so tall.
A plaque at the front door commemorates the Protected Historic Landmark. Ceiling of front porch painted in traditional blue. Sit on the porch on a cool evening and enjoy the downtown views.
Built to last! This beauty has survived hurricanes and countless presidential elections.
The house across the street is in the process of being restored as well. Most homes in OSW are restored and the neighborhood has a timeless quality similar to Woodland Heights. This porch just needs a tall iced tea or mint julep.
The stained glass front door, flooring and wainscoting in the foyer are just some of the beautiful original details that this house contains. Craftsmanship like this just doesn't exist anymore.
The 11.5 ft ceilings really make a difference here. The fireplace is surrounded by salvaged shiplap painted white for a crisp feel. Back storefront doors salvaged from the Brunner Bldg that burned down several decades ago.
Looking back towards the kitchen and glass front cabinets. This home has lots of cabinet and closet space. Sellers took advantage of every nook and cranny for added storage.
A space for a breakfast nook next to the open kitchen counter. Great space to set up a spread for a dinner party. Countertops are classic Vermont Marble.
Did you know blue cabinets are all the rage right now? Or paint them white if you want. The dishwasher is cleverly hidden behind the panel left of the sink. Cabinets were site built from materials salvaged from a River Oaks mansion that was demolished.
Gas range in the island with butcher block counters. A warming drawer is just to the right. These cabinets were hand made by seller and extend to the ceiling. They are painted a light blue inside. After all we are in the Arts District. A little pop of color is nice.
The door on the left is a pantry. There is also a second pantry and the built-in refrigerator has a paneled exterior in keeping with the style of the home.
That tall cabinet to the right of the door? It's built-in pantry that was crafted to look like a cabinet. The island features salvaged shiplap and a butcher block countertop. Note the distinctive period lighting.
Over by the stairs is this powder room with a special live edge wood counter and vessel sink. Little design touches like this are all over this home.
Can we talk about the lights? No they did not come from Home Depot...period specific restored lights that are incredibly detailed and one of a kind. Also, don't miss the transom windows like the one in this dining room.
The formal dining room just off the kitchen. It could fit a much larger table. With original floors, paneled walls and double glass doors that lead to the foyer. Sellers had wainscoting made to match original from Cypress logs from a Louisiana swamp.
The first room off the foyer is this room being used as a formal sitting area. It would also make a fantastic home office with those floor to ceiling windows that lead to the front porch.
Another view of the living room that shows the mock fireplace. Museum clips are in place to hang art without nails. Fireplace is a non-working replication of original one that was removed.
The downstairs master with an ensuite bath. Lovely windows facing the driveway allow so much natural light. Restored period overhead light and wall sconce. This room is located just off the sitting room and near the kitchen. There is a closet in the adjacent bath.
Take a look at the restored original windows in this master bedroom. Wood shutters cover the windows.
The original tub that was refinished in 2019. The high tank toilet is a new unit. Note the beautiful cabinet vanity and marble countertop.
This stairwell was salvaged from a nearby 1880s home and it took 9 men to move it into place. It fit perfectly into the house. A gorgeous octagon stained glass window is the unexpected jewel of this little corner of the home.
A view of the stunning staircase. Seller has a notebook full of info about this special addition.
The curved staircase leads to this beautiful landing with built-in shelves. The three windows create a bright corridor that floods the second floor den with light. Note the restored light hanging above the stairwell.
Upstairs den/media room with built-in storage along TV wall. Cabinet doors to the left lead to storage all along the eaves. Several openings into this space exist on the second floor and offer loads of storage for holiday decor.
Another look at the upstairs den. The hallways leads to the front secondary bedroom and the upstairs bathroom. This space was finished in a 2002 remodel.
This view of the upstairs den facing the master bedroom. This is the largest of the 3 bedrooms and has a beautiful balcony along the back of the house and a large closet.
The upstairs master at the back of the house with a balcony that encompasses the width of the house. The louvered doors on left reveal extensive closet space.
Another look at this inviting retreat added in 2002 above the den below.
The largest bedroom in the house at 14 ft x 13 ft, and seems even larger with the doors along back wall. Plenty of room for big furniture and the adjacent den/media room offers an upstairs retreat.
The outdoor curtains blow in the breeze up here facing the back yard. A nice spot for morning coffee.
The upstairs bathroom with penny tile on the floor and a marble shower. The double doors shown lead to an additional section of attic storage.
Distinctive marble surround and frameless glass shower create a timeless design for the upstairs bath.
This lovely bedroom at the front of the house has the pretty stained glass window framing a view of downtown. Painted shiplap and period lighting give it a bright and inviting feel.
Another view down the hallway. There is an open closet in this room but you could easily add a door. The bath is adjacent.
Gorgeous back yard view that shows the size of the home and the garage added in 1998. Bricks salvaged from the Portanova mansion in River Oaks.
There is a lot of space back here and add in the back deck for extra seating. A large outdoor dining table could be used for big dinner parties.
This studio space above garage is plumbed for a bath if you want to create a garage apartment. Salvaged shiplap covers the ceiling and built-in bookcases line the walls. The sellers use it for an office/art studio but it could be a workout space, nanny quarters, music studio, etc. The owners love the wood patina but you could also paint the shiplap white for a completely different look.
Very close to downtown, just a few minutes to the Theatre District. Walking distance to all the fun places but far enough away that you don't hear it.
