Last year, Curbed NOLA posted the top 10 most expensive homes sold throughout 2016. On that list, you can bet there were some high-rolling, extremely-spacious, jaw-dropping mansions. However, not every month sells houses over $3 million in New Orleans.
Additionally, there have been several new constructions that have flooded the housing market. To make an effort to showcase some of the more inexpensive mansions, if you will, and to add a bit of historical charm, we created a list of the top 3 most expensive homes sold in 2016 made before the year 2000.
Here is a list of the top 3 most expensive houses that sold in New Orleans in December of 2016.
