Built in 1918, this three-story Victorian sits on a fenced corner lot on St. Charles Avenue. It’s a 10-minute walk from Audubon Park, and it’s also close to Tulane and Loyola universities. But the location is just one of this 4,360-square-foot home’s many charms.
From the front porch, one enters a foyer, where a crystal chandelier, mahogany staircase and stained-glass windows provide a grand greeting.
To the left, find a formal living and dining room connected by arched doorways. Here, too, crystal chandeliers proliferate.
Bay windows provide ample natural light and make the spacious formal dining room feel even more expansive.
But it’s not all harpsichord concertos and cucumber sandwiches here. The rest of the house is considerably more relaxed. A sunny, window-lined den comprises the rear of the house. Details including stained glass windows, medallions, and transoms continue even in this more casual space.
The den leads to a kitchen and butler’s pantry, which are connected by a carriage entry. Note the wine cooler in the pantry!
The master bedroom suite encompasses the entire front of the home’s second story. Featuring a sitting room, dressing room, and walk-in closet, the master bedroom suite also enjoys access to a balcony facing St. Charles Avenue.
You’ll find two more bedrooms and another bath on the second floor, plus a bedroom, bathroom, and game room on the third floor. There are five bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms in total, plus plenty of nooks—like this sunlit study.
After hitting the market in May for $1,495,000, the asking price is now down to $1,349,000.
