447 Oak Avenue SOLD • 4 BEDS • 2 BATHS • 2275 SF LIVING • $175,000
First time ever on the market, this unique Nine Mile Point home was originally built for an extended family. Designed in a similar fashion to New Orleans doubles, it features a shared living room in the front of the house and shared den in the back of the house. Privacy comes in the form of 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on each side, for a total of 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths.
The large living room not only has the original wood floors, but also picture moldings and triple windows that overlook the huge front yard and the neighborhood walking trail. The den is warm and welcoming, with cypress paneling, gleaming wood ceiling, built in bar and access to the covered and screened patio.
With both sides boasting a full kitchen, this is a rare opportunity for home caterers, artists that need sink and oven space or anyone who wants or needs to keep living arrangements a little separate. Whether used as a work or guest kitchen or even converted to an utility room that would be the envy of the neighborhood, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
All of the living spaces and bedrooms feature the original wood parquet floors. The carpet was recently removed, so a little refinishing may be in order, but they are in excellent condition and just waiting for you to restore them to their former glory.
The bathrooms are very spacious, with full tub/showers in both, along with the original linen closets and built in hampers.
Then there is the outdoor space…wow! With a lot that is well over 1/3 of an acre, there is still plenty of yard left even with the screened patio, double carport that could also be used as patio space and double detached garage with additional storage. Just across the street, on the neutral ground (median for non New Orleanians), there is a neighborhood walking path – shaded by a canopy of oak trees and complete with sitting bench that provides a nice resting spot to either enjoy the silence or meet up with neighbors.
Recently, the electrical panel was updated a new breaker system and a termite contract is already in place.
The expansion of the Huey P. Long bridge will soon mean an even quicker commute to Metairie, Harahan and River Ridge in East Jefferson to go along with the existing easy ride into downtown New Orleans.
