New Orleans is a terribly beautiful city, packed with everything from incredibly gorgeous bars to spectacular views. And in terms of the city’s houses, this place is rich with kick-ass architectural history: you've got the shotgun, double shotgun, Creole cottage, double-gallery house, and Creole townhouse as native New Orleans housing stock. But there are plenty of other styles, too, like Arts and Crafts, Craftsman, mid-century modern, Spanish-style bungalows, and all those crazy Italianate, Queen Anne, and Greek Revival mansions. Sometimes a certain style dominates a neighborhood, but more often than not, every ‘hood has a mix of everything, kind of like New Orleans itself. There are so many beautiful and vibrant homes, it was (extremely) difficult to narrow this list down, so in true New Orleans fashion, points were also awarded for uniqueness, historical significance, and general funkiness.
