We regret to inform you that this rare, Second Empire style French Quarter mansion is officially off the market. Asking $2.95 million at the time of its sale, according to City Business, (a June New York Times feature including the property had it at $2.4 million) the owners snatched it up for $1.85 million. Emulating French buildings built under Napoleon III, the Second Empire style was popular in New Orleans in the 1840s but there are few examples of the style left. The property saw a full renovation in 2011, but historic features like sweeping arches, intricate ceiling medallions, and tasteful crown molding remained. There is also space for two cars, a backyard and wraparound balcony.
