Sophisticated New Orleans Shotgun

Built in the 1860s, this pretty property in New Orleans has all the hallmarks of a "shotgun" house: a painted-wood exterior, Victorian embellishments beneath the front eve and a wide porch. A sky blue door enlivens the exterior and adds a modern touch for good measure.
