Anne Rice’s prolific output as a novelist is rivaled only by her prodigious collection of luxury homes—although the scribe has downsized in recent years. The deconsecrated 19th-century Catholic orphanage she once called home is now a condo development, and this palatial Victorian center hall is on the market as well.
Renovated in 2017, the home sits on St. Charles Avenue, where its fenced yard and marble patio face the nation’s oldest continuously operating streetcar line. Crown molding, mantels, and chandeliers abound throughout the 8,747-square-foot manse.
There’s also a swoon-worthy cypress and mahogany staircase and an enclosure shower with a stained-glass wall—the perfect spa day destination for someone who’s ever so slightly extra. The abode has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms, plus a four-car garage.
At $4.3 million, the grand Victorian is among the most expensive homes currently on the market in New Orleans.
