When this Lakefront house hit the market back in March, it stood out not only for its unusual look but also its owners—the contemporary Metairie manse belongs to Davis and Margaret China Lee, siblings of the late, great Jefferson Parish Sheriff Harry Lee. At first asking $1,395,000, the price is now down to $1,295,000.
A large entry foyer leads into the home, which has soaring 21-foot ceilings and a minimalist double-sided fireplace amid the open floor plan. From the dining and living rooms there are views of an indoor pool and solarium, lined with glass tile. A large kitchen has vaulted wood ceilings and views of the levee, and there is a courtyard in the back and a balcony upstairs.
