The Neighborhood: Lower Greenville
Why It Looks Cool: Amidst the charming Tudor cottages surrounding the M Streets, you’ll occasionally find a striking New Orleans-style abode. And though this one is a bit flashier than most, it still offers plenty of charm. The master suite, with its rows of French doors and private patio, just sweetens the pot.
