New Orleans artist, Robert Guthrie, passed away in 2014 but left behind a living piece of art in his old neighborhood in Bayou St. John, on Bayou Street. Guthrie was a beloved artist in NOLA and was most notably known for creating famous NOLA city and Mardi Gras scenes, and the 1992 New Orleans Jazz Fest poster. Shortly after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, Guthrie bought the 1918 gas station (photos courtesy of Zillow)  and created an incredible living space and roof-top deck.

The unique home has been featured on CNN, HGTV, Huffington Post, and a host of other networks highlighting unusual homes that have been renovated into modern marvels. Guthrie's century-old gas station home is just that, as he expanded on the space turning the once single-story filling station into a 2,225 square-foot two-story loft, with two bedrooms, two full baths, and a rooftop terrace.

According to a November 2019 publication by Curbed New Orleans, the home was put on the market after Guthrie's death and was listed for $ 649K! The home did not sell and was listed for rent to the tune of $4,500 per month in 2020. Then the rent was lower to $3,500 per month when the property showed up as a rental in January 2023. Should you be interested in buying, it looks like this work of art would potentially run somewhere around $424,200!
