If you're in the market for a mansion, now is a good time for you: several of our favorite massive homes on the market have seen recent price cuts (like this Thomas Sully Queen Anne Italianate, this Greek Revival manse, this beauty on Esplanade Avenue and this one on St. Charles Avenue). The iconic fence on this famous Garden District home one was created by Wood, Miltenberger, & Co., the same company that made the cornstalk fench at the Cornstalk Hotel in the French Quarter. Built around 1860 and designed by legendary architect Henry Howard, many notables — including Louisiana Governor Michael Hahn — at one time called the mansion home. Gorgeous archways, ornate crown molding and fireplaces, stately columns, a dreamy staircase and other beautiful details fill the home.
