It’s a house with such a big history that it has its own blog.

The home at 925 Burdette St. in New Orleans has tons of character, and after a two-year renovation, it sits ready for a new resident to continue its story.

The $1,950,000 Carrollton-area dwelling has a colonial look now, but it started off in 1852 with a Creole feel, then changed into something resembling the heyday of Victorians in the Florida Keys.

Façades have changed, but wings also have been added and subtracted.

Today, the 6,600-square-foot home with six bedrooms and 5½ baths sits on a 9,000-square-foot lot. It is nestled into an area with homes of comparable size.

The stately three-story home features a front with arched windows and doorways, carriage lamps and columns to support the roofline, which includes three dormers.

A black-and-white, marble-tiled center hall leads to a curved staircase.

The front formal rooms — dining room, study and parlor — contain architectural details and built-ins, plus medallions and fireplaces. Hardwood floors and additional marble tiles are also found.

A large den opens into a spacious kitchen with stainless, commercial-quality appliances and hard-surface counters. Just off the kitchen are a pantry, half bath and a back staircase.

A white and gray bathroom

Four bedrooms, each with an en suite bath, fill the top floor. Three have custom walk-in closets.

The third floor boasts an expansive room and a bath.

Outside, a porch runs the width of the back of the house, with a smaller alcove section off the parlor and kitchen.

The home is listed by Robert Gibson Lott of Gibson Lott Properties, (504) 432-2371.
