Even if you're not a fan of the mid-century modern style of homes, it is kind of interesting to see a rarity like this in New Orleans. This Lake Terrace home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms (plus two half-baths), and 3,845 square feet of living space. Designed by local architect and Tulane architecture grad, Philip Roach, Jr., there's clearly a Frank Lloyd Wright influence going on. Roach did spend some time in the 1950s traveling the States and documenting Wright's houses. This place is entered through a 950-square foot covered patio, there's a slate-floor foyer, and in the courtyard garden there are "built-in planters of recycled jumbo handmade bricks giving a nod to the past." Perk alert: possible (wo)man cave in the finished attached garage with walnut cabinets and a shower.
