Architect Lee Ledbetter’s streamlined, modern touch is present in many New Orleans landmarks—from his marble-clad renovation of the St. Roch Market to his elegant work on the Sydney & Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden.
Ledbetter also renovated this Uptown home on Burdette Street. Painted all in white, a simple bargeboard cottage conceals a sprawling second building designed by Ledbetter and built by Pierre Stouse of Edifice Builders in 2014. Together, they form a courtyard-facing, 4,435-square-foot compound with pool views and contemporary styling.
The overall vibe is peaceful and minimalist. Highlights include a floating ceiling, limestone floors, lots of natural light, and a rooftop deck overlooking the Mississippi River, where the foghorns of passing tankers and cargo ships provide an ambient soundtrack.
The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom property asks $1,625,000.
