A top-to-bottom 2016 renovation turned this stunning, 18-room, 1867 townhome with the classic columns and soaring ceilings into a drop-dead gorgeous, super-stylish choice, where crisp, white-black-blue décor and sleek, custom touches meet classy antiques. Second-line instruments as artwork and (limited) amenities like a small, butler-style bar in the polished parlor keep it friendly; the wide front gallery, complete with dawdle-ready wicker rockers, keeps it welcoming. Second-floor rooms with private balcony spaces feel positively Southern-belle chic. The Lower Garden District locale is a bit off the beaten path but convenient to the streetcar line.
