This restored home located at the edge of the French Quarter, sitting three blocks from the Mississippi River, just hit the market.

The asking price is $2,490,000, priced at $429 per square foot. Based on other listings in the French Quarter, this home is priced $130 less than the neighborhood price per square foot average of $559.

At first glance, the Esplanade home sits three stories tall with a balcony located on the second floor. The driveway, which is off to the side of the home, can accommodate up to two cars.

Hardwood flooring and soaring ceilings are installed throughout. Other highlights include chandeliers in all formal rooms, a controlled wine cellar on the third floor, and an elevator that services all three floors.

One of the most notable features—beyond the elevator, of course—includes a spacious gourmet kitchen, complete with custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliance, a center island with a stove, and connecting breakfast room.

At 5,805 square feet, this home has nine bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms. The master bedroom has direct access to the front-facing balcony, while the master bathroom has marble finishing. Three bedrooms have direct access to an additional balcony located at the side of the home. The third floor bathroom connects to a six-person sauna.

An uncovered brick patio, fountain, and a back house—which has a kitchen, laundry, and bathroom—sit at the rear of the home.
