House Porn Alert: 'New York Times' Features $2.4M French Quarter Victorian

It's halfway through the workday and therefore the perfect moment to begin stealing time from your job by gawking at fancy homes on the Internet. The New York Times today, in its "What You Get" series profiling homes at a certain price point in different cities, features a gorgeous Victorian on the edge of the French Quarter going for $2,400,000.
The 4,316 square-foot home, located on Esplanade Avenue, was built in 1890 and saw a large-scale renovation in 2011 (when the owners bought it it was divided into apartments). Original aspects of the home were restored, including the home's grand staircase that was hidden. Some fancy features to note: a lovely courtyard, a bathroom "finished almost entirely in onyx" and a blue parlor with a wet bar that looks like something out of The Awakening (without the underlying sadness).

The feature also includes a contemporary home in Seattle with a stunning dining area that opens to a balcony with views of Mount Ranier, and a midcentury modern in Boulder that's surrounded by .42 acres of sylvan beauty. Head over to the New York Times for the full feature.

UPDATE: A previous version of this post wrongfully said the house was in the Marigny, when — although it's very close to the Marigny — it's technically on the French Quarter side of Esplanade. Our mistake!
