This pink palace, plus a couple others (see below), offer a taste of what's going on in New Orleans' million-dollar condo scene. On the market for over a year, this three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo is listed for $1,495,000. By the Garden District's standards, 4,738-square feet isn't much, but the two-story penthouse does offer a nice view of St. Charles Avenue, and the large windows set the scene for the perfect Mardi Gras parade viewing experience. This pink palace was "elegantly renovated," with a walk-in closet the size of some bedrooms, and a "faux marble staircase" (is that a selling point?) And now, just because it's fun to hate - check out the cowhide duvet in the bedroom pic, and hold on, is that a taxidermied bear?
1732 Palmer Avenue, Uptown
Gorgeous hardwood floors, natural light galore, a large, sleek kitchen, and the best selling point of all - a private, glass elevator with cushioned seating. This Audubon-area condo, asking $1,150,000, has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and 3,350-square feet of living space. Interestingly, there's also a 700-square foot basement, which is basically unheard of in New Orleans. "One of a kind offering," indeed.
600 Port of New Orleans Place, Central Business District
In one of the few buildings with unobstructed river views, this two-bedroom, two-bath Port of New Orleans condo is going for $1,295,000. It's nothing gigantic, with 1,918-square feet of living space but there is an outdoor deck with a pool, hot tub, and grilling area. This CBD place actually seems pretty lavish with marble floors in the living room and kitchen, high ceilings, a large dressing area and a 36-foot glass wall overlooking the Mississippi River and Crescent City Connection. Perfect place to watch the fireworks, if nothing else.
