From the Zillow listing:


This bright and charming cottage located in the Garden District has so much to offer! With refinished original hard wood floors and tons of windows it wows when you walk in the front door. Spacious living area opens into dining space and centers around a gas fireplace that shows off some of the home’s original shiplap. Shiplap is just the beginning of the original charm that this home has to offer. Must tour to believe all the storage in this two bedroom, two bathroom home including an 8ft x 6ft cedar lined storage room off the attached laundry. If you want to sit on the front porch and enjoy the neighborhood you can; or you could sit on the new 200 sq ft covered deck in the backyard.
