Creole Cottage in Louisiana. Circa 1864. $290,000

March 29, 2023

This creole cottage could be super cute! Love that porch. The home was built in 1864. It is located on 1/2 acre in Madisonville, Louisiana. The home features a covered front porch, hardwood floors, claw foot tub, baseboards and some exposed brick. Needs some work and it seems like they are asking a bit too much for it. Having said that, I don’t know what the Madisonville real estate market is like. Maybe someone on here can fill us in. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,400 square feet. $290,000
