Welcome to 626 Bouny Street in Algiers Point, where you’ll find a wonderful mix of historic and modern stirred together and presented beautifully in the way that only a 148-year-old home can be. Walking distance from the Algiers ferry and with a front seat view of the 4th of July and New Year’s Eve firework shows, you’ll be in the middle of history with a side dish of fabulous neighborhood fun.
Your first view is perfection, from the white picket fence to the recently restored deep front porch with marble steps, to the architectural details. And the beauty doesn’t stop there.
Double parlors, separated by pocket doors, are currently being used as formal living and dining rooms. The details are absolutely exquisite, including floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the porch and provide lots of natural light, triple crown molding, original (and newly refinished!) hardwood floors, 11-foot ceilings, transoms, and ceiling medallions that show off the light fixtures.
The chef’s kitchen is centrally located with a full suite of appliances, a center island with sink, built-in storage, glass-front display cabinets, granite counters, subway tile accents, and a breakfast space for a casual table and chairs.
Attached to the kitchen is the den, with a working wood fireplace, more built-in storage, double crown molding, and natural light from the French doors that open to the side porch. Appliances include a refrigerator, range/oven, dishwasher, and the washer + dryer located in the interior laundry room.
The 2 bedrooms are tucked away at the rear of the house along with 2 full bathrooms. The guest bath has marble counters, a clawfoot tub, beadboard wainscotting, and a custom tile inlay on the floor.
The primary suite is nothing short of awesome, with a bright and cheerful attached office that leads to the backyard, a full en suite bathroom, transoms, triple crown molding, and a working fireplace. The primary bath is rocking marble floors and counters, dual sinks, and a large tub plus a stand-alone shower.
As if 3 porches aren’t enough, the backyard offers a raised deck and a ground-level brick patio that just oozes with charm. No utilitarianism here, the cozy and attractive storage shed looks like an extension of the house. A fully fenced yard, a canopy of trees for shade, a fire pit, and a dash of tropical landscaping make this little oasis an alluring space.
