2446 Royal, a home that sold just seven years ago for $340K has taken on a new owner for over double the price. 2007 was also the year that the four bedroom, four and a half bath went through a complete renovation that included preserving its wood while adding a bit of modernity, most specifically in the kitchen. It is this kitchen that won an HGTV competition against two other homes and was the driving force for the purchase of 2446 Royal St at $890K.
2446 Royal St began its life as a project for developer Bernard Xavier Philippe de Marigny de Mandeville, who utilized family plantation land to build upon. The circa 1835 corner spot offers a spacious, 3,100 square foot main property along with an addition 1,000 square foot suite on site. As for that kitchen, it comes equipped with its own water supply and even a wine cooler. Renovation for the kitchen alone cost nearly $42K, an investment that apparently paid off. Its selling price of $890K is just $9K lower than the asking price, which 23 percent of y'all answered correctly in our PriceSpotter from August.
