This is a nice little house in the 1000 block of Royal Street between Ursuline and St. Philip. The family that owned for the last 80 years sold it after using it as rental property for much of that time. The new owner is reportedly from New Orleans and is moving back to live in this house, once renovated.
Literally, the house has been taken down to its front and side outside walls and will be expanded over the next year or more. That back house has been empty forever and they will deal with it after the front house is done.
Stay tuned for more pictures over the next few months….
