Built circa 1885, this property was the original part of the St. Elizabeth’s orphanage site located on Napoleon Avenue. In fact, the grand condominium for sale, unit #16, used to be the chapel.
The St. Elizabeth’s orphanage moved in 1989 and sold the entire property to renowned author Anne Rice in 2000. The KFK Group acquired and converted the building into high-end condominiums and townhomes in 2004.
The asking price has been cut from $4,400,000 to $2,800,000. Despite the cut, it’s still one of the most expensive condos for sale in New Orleans.
The unit has 24-foot vaulted ceilings, 17-foot stained-glass windows, a lovely chandelier, and glossy hardwood floors. At 5,000 square feet, it has an open living room, a spacious dining room, a library, and a media room (located on the second floor).
The kitchen is outfitted with Berloni cabinets, premium quartz countertops, a butler’s pantry, and a wine cooler.
The two-story home has three bedrooms and five full bathrooms. The first floor has a bonus room connected to the master bedroom.
