Who says French Quarter living has to be cramped? This 3,375-square foot, three-bedroom, two-bath Dauphine Street home hit the market last week. In case that's not enough room, there's a two-bedroom, three-bath guest house that overlooks the lush courtyard (yes, there's a pool and it's gorgeous). Other perks: an elevator, off-street parking, and working fireplaces.
The listing says this estate dates back to around 1825 but the history books say one of the owners of the property, Arsène Lacarrière Latour, purchased a building at this address with his architect partner back in 1811. The property was known as the Major Latour School where architecture, general art lessons, and interior design were taught.
