"This is a rare opportunity to purchase a home in the historic French Quarter and a piece of New Orleans history," said Craig King, president & CEO of J.P. King Auction Company. "In addition to its wonderful amenities, this French Quarter Estate is only a short stroll from Jackson Square."
The home was originally built in 1817, a two-story French Quarter estate full of history and richness. In the mid-1900's, it served as a Gallery Circle Theatre and since has been renovated with modern and luxurious amenities. The focal point of the 3 + suites, 4.5 bathroom estate is centered on the spectacular private courtyard with pool that is perfect for entertaining guests or escaping the energy of the city for quiet relaxation. The courtyard's garden area contains a sprinkler system and automatic fertilizer.
"This is the type of house you never get tired of, a home that makes you love it even more over time," said owner Jerriane Long. "It's truly un-describable. It has a personality all of its own, where each room has its own theme."
The estate boasts hand painted murals throughout, two kitchens, beautiful copper ceilings, cypress flooring, exposed brick, granite countertops, spiral staircase, theatre room, antique bar area and a unique and open layout. The French Quarter Mansion has impeccable architecture throughout the property, preserving the traditional appearance and the nostalgic feel that the area is known for. The estate offers complete privacy from the street with a two-car garage and private parking in the courtyard.
New Orleans is known as the birthplace of jazz, a vibrant city full of diverse culture, deep historical traditions, quaint neighborhoods and fantastic cuisine. The estate is near some of the major attractions in New Orleans including Cafe du Monde, French Market, Bourbon Street, Aquarium of the Americas and the Moon Walk along the Mississippi River. This central location is ideal for experiencing annual Mardi Gras celebrations, performing arts, museums, professional sporting events and the pulsating nightlife.
