It’s not everyday that homes in the millions hit the market in New Orleans. Last week, this palatial French Quarter home has not only toppled the most expensive dwelling in New Orleans, but the largest home for sale in the city, too.
Built in 1819, this expansive dwelling sits on Ursulines Avenue on nearly a half-acre of land, spanning half of the street’s block.
Its asking price is $10.3 million.
At first glance this mansion has a stucco facade, nine tall shuttered windows, and one entrance with a notable fanlight.
It has a sumptuous foyer, traditional living and dining rooms, a large den, and formal entertainment rooms. Its stately dining room has a mural that wraps around the room and a noteworthy chandelier. Highlights throughout the home include its soaring ceilings, crown molding, plaster medallions, exposed beams, and French doors—just to name a few.
Its airy kitchen has recessed lighting, a sleek countertop finish, and stainless steel appliances (including two refrigerators and two dishwashers). It also has two wine rooms and a sizable breakfast area.
Totaling 12,365 square feet, this home has 8 bedrooms, 8 full bathrooms, and three half-bathrooms. It has outstanding views of Ursulines Avenue and the French Quarter from its third-floor widow’s walk.
It has an expansive, palace-like courtyard with a pool and guest home at its rear. If you’re looking for a place for your friends to park, it has off-street parking suitable for 15 cars and a two-car garage with dormers.
