In the Garden District, a circa-1862 Victorian gets a price chop, from $2.15M to $1.99M

That price gets you not one, not two, not three, but FOUR houses

Built in 1862, this opulent Garden District home has seen New Orleans through many eras— from the Civil War and Reconstruction to its 21st-century incarnation as Hollywood South. Most recently, the double-gallery, side-hall Victorian was used as temporary luxury housing for “some of Hollywood’s elite while they’re working in New Orleans,” according to listing agent Rayna Bishop of Reve Realtors.

The movie-star manse is now on the market—although it’s an understatement to call it a mere mansion. The 11,000-square foot property is more of a compound consisting of a three-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot main house, a heated infinity pool, gated parking, two one-bedroom, 900-square-foot guest houses, and a 900-square-foot, one-bedroom pool house—which could do double duty as a third (!) guest house

The interior is all Old-World grace, with medallions, crown molding, and woodwork lending period charm to the double parlor. Each of the guest homes has its own unique character. One feels like a cozy attic hideaway, thanks to a spiral staircase that leads to a bedroom tucked under a sloping roof. Another feels more rustic due to its exposed brick walls and tile floors. All feature views of the live oak- and palm-shaded pool.

The asking price for this four-in-one home recently dropped to $1,999,999.
