If you’ve been looking for the ultimate luxury home in Louisiana, look no further than this stunning Italianate-style mansion in the Uptown neighborhood. Built in 1868 by renowned architect James Freret, this home has a rich history and has been meticulously restored and updated for modern living.
As you approach the home, you’ll be struck by its grandeur and elegance. The double galleried side hall mansion sits on a spacious corner lot, allowing for beautiful gardens and courtyards. And with a 3 car garage and a detached 2-story guest house, there’s plenty of room for family and friends.
Inside, the home is just as impressive. The first and second floors boast 14 foot ceilings and gorgeous original details, including double parlors used as formal living and dining rooms, a large den with built-ins, and a glassed sunroom. The gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream, with high-end appliances and ample storage. And with oversized covered porches, entertaining is a breeze.
Upstairs on the second floor, you’ll find 4 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms, including a large primary suite with a huge bathroom and separate walk-in closet. There’s also a large laundry room and two covered porches (including one that is screened) on this floor. The third floor has high ceilings and 3 additional bedrooms plus 2 more bathrooms and a cozy den.
But the real surprise is the detached guest house. Recently used as a very successful short-term rental, it brings in $25k to $30k per year in revenue. With its separate meter and private entrance from Carondelet Street, it’s the perfect space for guests or even as a rental property.
Overall, this home seamlessly blends the best of old and new. With the charm and grace of yesteryear but all of the modern conveniences one would expect, it’s the ultimate luxury living experience in Louisiana. Don’t miss your chance to make it yours.
