We've featured a grand Thomas Sully Victorian here, so it's only fitting that we include the personal residence of the man himself that recently hit the market. The architect built the Uptown home on St. Charles Avenue for his family in 1886, and it typifies the early Queen Anne style with its mixed surfaces — the exterior is a mix of cypress shingles and bricks — and colorful stained glass. Inside, there are beautiful fireplace mantles, bay windows, and an ornate staircase. Although decidedly formal, this place knows how to party, too: a downstairs man cave is outfitted with a sizable bar, and there's a big saltwater pool out back. The asking price for the 5,202-square-foot home? $1,670,000.
