Way back in the 1880s, Second Empire architecture was a relatively commonplace part of the New Orleans landscape. 634 Esplanade Ave was just one of two such homes built on the block in 1885, its counterpart at 623 Esplanade Ave built the year after. Built by Middlemiss and Murray, this two and a half story home features sweeping ceiling arches, intricate medallions, and tasteful crown molding throughout. The home was renovated just four years ago but still retains most of its old New Orleans charm. This five bedroom, three and a half bath house even includes space for two cars as well as a backyard patio. $2.375M gets you 4,316 square feet of what was once one of the most popular architectural styles in the city.
