It’s no secret that exposed brick is a covetable home feature. When looking through listing photos, checking into an Airbnb, or slyly peeking into brownstone windows as I pass by, I always say a little “wow, nice” to myself every time I spot a patch of brick. So imagine my joy when I came across this absolutely lovely condo for sale on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. From the all-brick courtyard to the accents poking through in the kitchen backsplash, bathroom wall, fireplace surround, and even around arched doorways, this place is an exposed brick heaven.
The mood of the condo is immaculate, too. The lime green shutters that greet you in the plant-filled courtyard set a fresh, happy tone from the start. Inside, an eclectic mix of wooden ceiling beams, wood cabinetry, and white countertops and walls round out the first floor. Up on the second level, both bedrooms enjoy heaps of sunlight, ample closet space, and easy access to and a balcony that overlooks the courtyard below. Depending on which window you look out, you can embrace the buzz of Bourbon Street or the peaceful slice of brick paradise in your own backyard.
