Location: New Orleans, La.
Price: $3.2 million
Located on Royal Street, one of the oldest stretches in the Vieux Carré, this 19th-century residence spans the second and third floors of a townhouse dating back to the 1830s.
A private elevator whisks guests to the second-floor landing, which leads to two parlor rooms and a wet bar. One of the parlors opens to a balcony gallery that overlooks Royal Street. The third floor has a living room, a kitchen and a second gallery.
About six years ago, the sellers decided to restore the four-bedroom home, preserving many of its original decorative details, including the ceiling medallions, fanlights, mantels and moldings. With the addition of Miele appliances and Bulthaup countertops in the kitchen, a matching wet bar and a tube-shaped elevator, they brought the home into the 21st century. “The home has contemporary kitchens and baths, which is a wonderful juxtaposition of the old and the new,” said Michael Wilkinson of French Quarter Realty, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate.
The master suite is housed in a converted garret; the three guest bedrooms in a dependency (an attached structure that was once used as staff quarters). The property also has a small courtyard that Wilkinson described as “quaint and romantic.”
