Developer Tracy Williams rankled neighbors when she built a large pool house at her "grand, but rundown" mansion—the incident even lead to a disgruntled neighbor getting arrested. Now the 7th Ward house, the childhood home of New Orleans artist Caroline Durieux, is on the market, controversial pool house and all. The rustic-gothic, five-bedroom main house has five full marble bathrooms and 14-foot ceilings. The kitchen "needs completion." Outside there's a pool, outdoor shower, and that famous pool house, which includes a loft bedroom, one-and-a-half bathrooms and a kitchenette. The asking price? $1,299,000.
