Live in a Home Designed by the Architects of the Superdome

New, 2 comments

It's slim pickings in the photo department for this mid-century modern home, but fingers crossed that the brand new listing will offer more of an inside peek very soon. The three-bedroom, two-bath home was built in 1953 by the beloved New Orleans architect team of Curtis & Davis. That means the future-owner of this 2,323-square-foot spread in Lakeshore West gets to drop lines like, "Oh, the guys that designed the Superdome? Yeah, they designed my house, too." Highlights (of what is shown so far, that is) include floor-to-ceiling glass walls, black slate tile floors with pebble-poured flooring in the kitchen, a gas fireplace with a slate chimney, and a roomy backyard. This place sold for $209,000 in 2007 and was listed in June 2011 for $349,999 with no takers after nine months on the market. Asking price: $425,000.
