Remember MTV's The Real World? Seven strangers, picked to live in a house together in a cool American city, where we watched them work and fight and share bathrooms? One of the best aspects of the series was : Every season, the MTV set designers would trick out the open floors plans with deep colors, dramatic art, and lots of exposed brick and pipes to emphasize the fun youthful vibe of the homes, which were often found in converted firehouses or lofts.
The home at 3300 Dumaine Street in the Bayou-St. John neighborhood of New Orleans has just that Real World look. It's a converted gas station, and while that's very clear from the outside, the interiors are a bit more subtle, and entirely livable.
Artist Robert Guthrie renovated and designed the 100-year-old space, living there until his death in 2014. Now, his home has been , who notes that it has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and overall 2,225 square feet of space. It also sits on a 100 x 30' lot, with plenty of room for parking (of course).
Some of our favorite touches? The super high ceilings and exposed beams, certainly, and the concrete floors with all that metal, from the stairs to the extra long kitchen island.
The pops of red keep the space from being too cold, as do the punchy art and string lights. The coolest room of all may be that bathroom, with the black subway tile drawing attention to the generous ceiling height. Cool!
The place is listed at $649,000, and interested parties may contact Chris Smith at 504-231-2004.
