Garden District Queen Anne Victorian designed by Thomas Sully, currently a bed and breakfast, asks $2.25M

Thomas Sully designed the mansion in 1890

This Queen Anne Victorian in the Garden District, currently the home of the Sully Mansion Bed and Breakfast, just hit the market in hopes of becoming someone’s grand private residence.

Built in 1890 by the prolific New Orleans architect Thomas Sully for the Rayne family, the mansion—framed by a canopy of oak trees—opens with an inviting wraparound porch. Inside, there’s a foyer with a grand staircase, ornate moulding, and stained glass windows. Throughout the house there are 14-foot ceilings, plaster medallions, original cypress pocket doors, and exposed brick fireplaces with original mantels.

The house includes a third floor with an owner’s quarters that has a kitchen and bathroom, and there’s additional attic space. Outside, there’s a tropical brick courtyard.

What’s the asking price? $2,250,000.
