Audubon Park area is historically one of New Orleans’ most rarified neighborhoods. This Colonial manse speaks to the wealth present in the area even at the turn of the century.
The circa-1902 abode leads with imposing columns and a topiary-flanked entrance. The entry equally dramatic. Lined with balconies, the two-story space features a beamed ceiling, chandelier, and a central staircase, which serves as the central thoroughfare in this home’s symmetrical configuration of rooms. A parlor with floor-to-ceiling windows, a den with exposed ceiling beams and wood paneling, and a kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops all are adjacent to the soaring space. Hardwood floors and fireplaces (seven total) are present throughout the 3,734-square-foot home.
There are four bedrooms and five bathrooms, which include glass enclosure showers and walk-in closets. The home’s outdoor living areas rival its interior for grandeur. In the front, find a grassy yard ringed with a brick walking path and trees, which leads to a flagstone front porch. In the back, highlights include a porch overlooking a swimming pool.
The mansion asks $1,350,000.
