It’s time for the High & the Low, a Curbed New Orleans column chronicling the most and least expensive homes sold in New Orleans in the last seven days. (Sales information gathered from Zillow, Redfin, and Realtor.) Let’s see what buyers and sellers bought and paid for this week!
This neoclassical revival center hall facing Audubon Park represents the high end of home sales for last week. Originally built in 1908, the 6,249-square-foot property was renovated by antiques magnate and interior designer Michael Carbine in 2011. Landscape designer Michael McClung is responsible for its topiary-framed brick terrace and pool. The home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a crystal chandelier-hung formal dining room, a study, a wet bar, and a guest house. The property was listed on November 21, 2017 for $3,350,000 and sold on September 21 for $2,725,000.
More than 13 years after Hurricane Katrina and the federal levee failures, New Orleans still has flooded, gutted houses on the market—but after this recent sale, another blighted home will (hopefully) be renovated. This three-bedroom, one-bathroom fixer-upper in New Orleans East sits on a larger corner lot, a 15-minute drive from downtown New Orleans. The 1,260-square-foot gutted brick structure has a carport and separate utility room. It was listed for $40,000 on May 16, and sold for $30,000 on September 18.
