Enticed by the developing restaurants and shops, the owners purchased a narrow vacant lot in the Old Fourth Ward for their home. The 3 bedroom, 3 ½ bath home has a separate office and a secured courtyard with a koi pond tucked between the house and the detached garage.

The home reaches to the exterior with porches that open off of the living room, kitchen and master bedroom. The roof top terrace provides expansive views that capture the stars and city skyline.

The home has many energy efficient features. The stairwell acts as a passive ventilation shaft, the hot air rises, drawing cooler air from the garden level. This house received the Premium Earthcraft certification.
