Nineteenth-century architect Thomas Sully is most well known for the Columns Hotel and the original Whitney building. With its steeply pitched roof and curvilinear turrets, this circa-1884 Victorian by Sully exemplifies the Queen Anne style. A wraparound porch overlooks beautifully manicured grounds and, beyond that, St. Charles Avenue.
The five bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home’s colorful stained glass, arched doorways, elaborate millwork, and ornate staircase are typical Sully flourishes.
Crystal chandeliers, crown molding, ceiling medallions, and 14-foot ceilings bring drama to the space.
The kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, granite counters, a brick fireplace, and butler’s pantry, plus wide double doors that let in lots of light.
Balconies, a deck, a slate terrace, and a wraparound porch provide plenty of room for outdoor living. The garage has two charging stations for electric cars. The asking price for the 4,961-square-foot Uptown home is $1,650,000.
