There has never been a better time to call yourself Drew Brees’ neighbor. And although this 4,121-square-foot manse isn’t on Audubon Street, where the Saints quarterback lives with his ever-growing brood, it isn’t far off, either. The lavish four-bedroom, four-bathroom estate sits on a 10,260-square-foot lot with parking for eight cars at nearby Audubon Boulevard.
If the circular driveway, landscaping, and proximity to Drew Brees don’t impress your guests, perhaps the chandelier-hung entry will.
Built in 1958, the home was renovated in 2018. It has a classic appearance but boasts modern, energy-efficient touches including spray-foam insulation, two high-efficiency HVAC systems, and double-insulated windows in the kitchen and den. That open living area also features vaulted ceilings and ample skylights for sunshine galore.
The formal dining room is where this home’s old soul really shines. Check out the gold-leaf ceiling and opulent wallpaper!
The wine closet and wet bar in the den tip this home’s hat as a space built for entertaining—as do the kitchen’s double ovens and warming drawer. Counters are granite.
Oak floors continue in the bedrooms. One features an ensuite bath, and two share a jack-and-jill bathroom.
Not counted in the home’s square footage is an expansive third floor that could function as a game room, office, bedroom—or some combination of the three. At 763 square feet, it offers room for many possibilities.
Ready for a lavish lifestyle? It will only set you back $1,195,000.
