St. Peter St. Façades. These French Quarter townhouses date to 1838 and 1843, respectively. The house on the left was built for successful hardware merchant Victor David. In the 1920s it was purchased by famed author Grace King for the women's literary club, Le Petit Salon. The construction contract from 1838, included in the online survey of the Historic New Orleans Collection makes for interesting reading. Here is an excerpt: "There is to be a good Doric cornice in front, with attic windows front and rear with sash in all; to be composition ornaments in front. The door and window frames for the kitchen to be made of timber, those for the first story to have batten shutters, and sash in all the windows. All the room doors of the second and third stories [are] to have batten shutters. The stair doors [are] to have batten shutters; a plain base in all the rooms of the kitchen; good stairs in the kitchen. The privies to be neatly finished, gallery railing and banister to all the back galler[ies]; a copper gutter to [the] front house, [a] copper gutter to the cave of the kitchen, and copper leaders both front and rear with a fancy head in front. The first or ground floor of kitchen [is] to be paved with good bricks. The flooring is to be of good cypress 1 ¼ inch thick, well laid; all the woodwork that is usually painted to have three good coats of paint." | #neworleans #faubourg #frenchquarter #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana

This 1½-story, 6-bay, masonry, double-dormered cottage, which dates from c. 1841, has gable ends and entrance detailing in the Greek Revival style. The cornice lintels over the other façade openings date from the late 19th century. (Source: The Collins C.

Much interesting detailing is featured on the façade of this late 19th century Victorian. The arched-headed, hooded bays and bracketed overhang are typical elements of the Italianate style popular in New Orleans during the 1880s and 90s. | #neworleans #faubourg #frenchquarter #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana #italianate #victorian

"Here is a classical example of the Creole cottage, a type of dwelling that was always practical and popular in the Vieux Carré. Made of brick between posts and covered with a weatherproofing coat of plaster-cement, this house is framed with the broad flat molding characteristic of the earlier cottages. Its simple doors and windows and steeply pitched roof also bespeak its age. Tucked away behind high walls there is a delightful patio-garden here where Creoles and present-day owners alike have enjoyed indoor-outdoor living. This land was held in a block-long estate by French and Spanish families throughout much of the eighteenth century. It was not until the enterprising real-estate promoter, Julien Poydras, bought it in 1808 that the land was subdivided and present day building was begun." — Source: Spring Fiesta Guide Book Date: Wednesday, January 1st 1964. "French Quarter: [w/ photo] This house at 1018 Dumaine Street was sold by Roberta Gross and Charles A. Mcalear to Alexandra Reta and Douglas M. Avis for $480,000." — Source: Times-Picayune, p. 20 Date: Saturday, July 9th 1994. | #neworleans #faubourg #frenchquarter #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana #creole #cottage

A circa 1890 townhouse with Eastlake detailing on Royal Street. A popular architectural style in New Orleans during the late Victorian/Queen Anne period (from about 1880 to 1910), Eastlake was named for British architect Charles Lock Eastlake. The style features highly decorative woodwork, including turned columns and balusters, open friezes, piercework, spandrels, and gable-over-hip roofs with gable windows surrounded by decorative woodwork.| #neworleans #faubourg #frenchquarter #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana #eastlake #victorian #queenanne

This two-bay Creole cottage on Dumaine Street was built in 1838. It sold in 1986 for $50,000 and is now valued for tax purposes at seven times that amount. Wild appreciation? During the same thirty-year period the Dow Jones Industrial Average increased more than tenfold from 1,895 to 20,000. | #neworleans #faubourg #frenchquarter #iheartnola #alwaysneworleans #architecture #nolaarchitecture #archdaily #followyournola #showmeyournola #nola #nolalove #thisisnola #oldhouse #archi_ologie #itsyournola #casasecasarios #architektur #archilovers #igersneworleans #igerslouisiana #creole #cottage #dumaine
