OMG! The woodwork! The Mayer Hirsch House, Circa 1909 in Louisiana. $275,000

January 20, 2021

That is some exquisite woodwork! The staircase is only one of two floating staircases in Louisiana. The Mayer Hirsch house was built in 1909. It is located on .25 acres in Alexandria, Louisiana. The home looks like it was last used as a restaurant, so I am guessing there is a commercial kitchen. The home has original hardwood floors, paneled wainscoting, pocket doors, tall ceilings, and beautiful mantels. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,906 square feet. $300,000 New price: $275,000

Opportunity awaits the right investor/visionary with this group of properties! The focal point, the Mayer Hirsch House has been remarkably restored and is full of history from the wood to the suspended staircase, only one of two in the state of Louisiana. This property would make an amazing Fine Dining establishment, or professional office, or any number of possibilities in conjunction with the other grouping of properties or as a stand-alone.
