Mid-Century Mod Home Goes For $680K & Other Notable Sales

7521 Dominican St.

Local architect and interior designer Lee Ledbetter and his partner Doug Meffert listed their immaculate midcentury modern home for $675,000 after the once-in-a-lifetime chance to scoop up the former home of Superdome designer Nathaniel "Buster" Curtis became a reality (see below). Built in 1955 by San Francisco architect John Dinwiddie, the Uptown three-bedroom house with an envy-inducing pool sold for $680,000, a tad over its asking price.

6161 Marquette Place

↑ Sure, the word's been out that the former home of one of New Orleans' most beloved architects, Nathaniel "Buster" Curtis sold to Ledbetter and Meffert in the ultimate New Orleans midcentury modern home switch-up, but the sale price wasn't common knowledge. Turns out the seven-bedroom, five-bath Uptown home went for $96,000 under its ask for a nice even $1,000,000.

1456 Camp St.

↑ This stunning 5,900-square-foot Lower Garden District house on Coliseum Square sold for $1,477,130. Built in 1857, this was the original home to women's rights advocate Sophie B. Wright's Home Institute – English and Classical School For Young Ladies and Children. Until the 1970s it served as the Catherine Club, a boarding house for young women where scholarships were offered and manners were taught. The four-bedroom spread with 16-foot ceilings and A+ architectural details listed in October with a $1,595,000 price tag.

923 Barracks St.

↑ Over in the French Quarter, this 1863 structure with a guesthouse, pool, and garage listed for $1.15-million. In need of a serious renovation, its new owners just plunked down $975,000 for the Barracks Street property.

3251 Laurel St.

↑ When this totally renovated three-bedroom home hit the market with a $520,000 ask, the collective smooch goodbye to cheap Irish Channel real estate was heard 'round the city. Even the hard-to-please Curbed commenter "ArchiSavant" thought this Laurel Street dwelling was "rather lovely." Clearly, this property was highly sought after, as it sold for $540,000 — $20,000 over its listing price.
