Property Description
A showstopping piece of New Orleans history

Living at 7916 Birch Street

The main floor

Follow the inviting staircase and step up the covered front porch entrance that sits behind the historically significant wrought iron fencing. Stunning bay windows adorn the facade with graceful shutters and delicate trim work.  Inside awaits a traditional center hall foyer with light spilling through the transoms and a 12-foot ceiling to welcome you home.

The main floor living room shows off the original wood floors and an ornate fireplace mantle that is both decorative and gorgeous. Bay windows allow natural light to fill the room and an exquisite chandelier illuminates evenings spent in front of that classical mantle, making this a genuinely unforgettable space.

Nestled between the living room and kitchen, a formal dining area welcomes guests with an antique touch. The original gasolier light fixtures have been adapted to electrical use in order to bring together classic elements of this historic home. An elaborate fireplace mantle coupled with a tasteful tile surround completes the refined atmosphere of this inviting space that currently serves as a sitting room.

This kitchen has plenty of space to bring out your inner chef! With abundant cabinet and counter space, storage is never a problem. The large over-the-sink window plus an accent window bring the sunshine in, making spending time here a pleasure. Appliances include a refrigerator, wall oven, gas cooktop, built-in microwave, and dishwasher.

Start your mornings off in the perfect tranquil spot: a sunny balcony porch overlooking an alluring pool, with French doors leading into a breakfast room separated from the kitchen by a charming casual dining bar. Step out to calming views over a glimmering pool and enjoy breakfast while being surrounded by peacefulness – it doesn’t get more perfect than that.

The first floor

Renovated in 2017, the first floor has terrazzo floors, a bedroom, a full bathroom, an office, and an additional bonus room for flexibility in how you want to use the area. Whether you need a private office, a guest suite, a home gym, or space for multi-generational living, this fills the bill.

The unfinished basement portion of the first floor holds two generous storage spaces along with a sizeable laundry room that includes a washer and dryer.

Beds + Baths

The main floor features 3 bedrooms, including the primary suite. The front bedroom has a splendid bay window for natural light while the second bedroom has a duo of windows, great closet space, and picture molding. Both of these bedrooms have original fireplace fronts and mantles.

The primary bedroom is located at the rear of the main floor. A tucked-away en suite bathroom with period built-in storage also has a full tub/shower combo and a striking black and white tile floor that has a slightly Art Deco vibe.

7916 Birch St outdoor spaces

Outdoor living sits at the top of the current owner’s favorite things about the house. Front and rear main floor porches give plenty of space for outdoor relaxation, and the rear porch overlooks the glittering saltwater pool surrounded by mature, tropical landscaping and a large covered patio that is just begging for the addition of an outdoor kitchen.

You’ll be the hosts with the most once your friends lay eyes on this inviting outdoor space, and they’ll clamor for an invite to the next BBQ, crawfish boil, or pool party.
