Once falling apart, now a grand, artful home

For the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Curbed looked at New Orleans before and after the storm. One story it showcased was the transformation of artist Matteo Neivert's LGD fixer-upper into an artful home base. But after getting a job offer in Portland he couldn't turn down, Matteo's labor of love is on the market.

Comparing it to Belle Reve in A Streetcar Named Desire, the house was "a mess" when Matteo bought it, but he had a vision of restoring it to glory—which he followed through with despite wanting to quit many times during the renovation process.

The restoration let the historic details of the grand home—14-foot ceilings, huge rooms, ceiling medallions, two standalone servants' quarters—shine. The home also boasts modern amenities including a large kitchen with custom cabinets and Energy Star appliances, and a master bathroom with Carrara marble and a jetted tub.

What's the asking price? $765,000.
