Triangular transoms, 13-foot vaulted ceilings, and skylights combine in the central, atrium-like space of this 3,306-square-foot home. Walls of windows showcase its oak-shaded corner lot in East Lakeshore. Along with an entry rock garden and enclosed glass patio, they visually unify the home’s indoor and outdoor living areas.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom abode was designed by architect Charles Rowe and bears many hallmarks of his style—terrazzo floors and Japanese-inspired sliding doors among them.
The home’s kitchen and bathrooms have been updated seamlessly, so as not to detract from the clean futurism of Rowe’s original design. You’ll find on-trend touches (stainless-steel appliances, a subway tile backsplash, and glass enclosure showers) alongside period elements (wood paneling and a wall-mounted rotary phone).
It’s a New Orleans home that doesn’t feel particularly New Orleanian, in a circa-1955 subdivision that doesn’t feel dated—and it’s asking $749,000.
