About 839 Dumaine St

It is not often that architectural historians and aficionados of period homes agree that changes made to the original are appropriate but at 839 Dumaine the widening of two doorways to match a third has been met with enthusiastic approval.

It is one of the most gracious floor plans of a Creole townhouse known in the Quarter.

In recent years it has been the home of two different sensitive and creative architects who have added to the additions and changes made over the years at this 1834 structure.

From the street it has enormous appeal in its row of Greek Revival townhouses that are so welcoming with their covered galleries.

And from the minute the entrance door opens, and you look straight through to the charming garden, you know it is a winner.

The most fascinating and appropriate alteration made to this home has been a widening of both the single doors to the hallway from each of the double parlors . . .to widened door-way . . .matching the original between-the-parlors Greek Revival opening. opening.

The kitchen is fascinating . . . contemporary but appropriate . . . and very much a part of the garden and the outdoors.

The second floor is perhaps even more amazing with how the original two bedroom and a hallway plan has been modified to a wonderful master bedroom suite . . . a bedroom and a parlor . . . with a terrific bathroom . . . and it has a guest room and bath in the dependency.

And even the third floor . . . once an almost inaccessible attic has been transformed into a usable area with its own bath.

Careful stewards have kept this home . . . one of a row of three. . . in flawless condition.
