Background Information on the Condos
This historic Barker House condo development is extremely unique in a great French Quarter Location on Chartres Street several blocks from Jackson Square and Esplanade Ave. Its unique is that it is like new as the building was taken down to the brick. As many of historic features that could be saved were saved and those that could not be saved were made to look like they were from the time period.
Its new electrical, new plumbing, new roof, new floors, new cooling and heating systems, new appliances, new shutters, new doors and much more. The bricks and some of the beams are original to the 1870 structure. The studs and floor plans are new and only the exterior walls were remaining when this project began.
Its also highly unusual for 7 condos to have such are large courtyard. Most of the units open onto the courtyard or the street. All have access to the courtyard. Hundreds of old brick were saved to give you that French Quarter Courtyard feel with street lamps and fountain.
The Vieux Carre Commission keeps developers from changing the historic look but with the Barker House Condos improvements and upgrades are the name of the game. Many of the old fireplaces were left in tack for that look, the exposed brick, high ceilings, French doors, balconies, exterior door and shutters are much like they were a 100 years ago.
The kitchens will feature custom cabinets, new appliances, washer dryers included, granite counters and all will be open rather than closed in.
Old world charm at your door steps.
