This 5,805 square-foot French Quarter/Marigny monolith comes furnished with the home's "timeless antiques" (presumably including the kitchen cabinets and dining room chairs monogrammed with "W," which probably stands for the Walker family that owns the home) and includes five separate apartments you can use for "guests, domestic help or rental income." There's also a sauna, exposed brick walls, a wraparound balcony, and many opulent Victorian details — archways, ceiling medallions, gilded mirrors, chandeliers, high ceilings, decorated fireplace mantles galore. The gray marble master bathroom with exposed brass pipes is particularly exquisite. The asking price? $3,499,000.
