Just outside of New Orleans’ Garden District, this classic New Orleans Victorian-style mansion comes with a hefty $4.5 million price tag ($514 per square foot!).
But for Anne Rice fans with a few million lying around, the price might be well worth it. The five-bedroom, five-bathroom center hall was once owned and painstakingly restored by the queen of the Vampire Chronicles.
Originally built in 1886, the home has retained most of its Southern charm — including a cypress staircase, working pocket doors, ceiling medallions, and the original stained glass. Of course, there’s also plenty of riches for the rich, including a mega-sized, completely covered in marble master bath complete with soaking tub, walk-in shower with stain glass features, fireplace and a gold chandelier.
There’s also a walk-in closet big enough to put your bed in and an outdoor living space complete with another fireplace. The new owners also get two balconies overlooking the famed, oak-lined St. Charles Street.
Oh, and if that isn’t enough, Rice wrote about the home in the novel “Lasher,” the second installment of Anne Rice’s “Mayfair Witch” chronicles.
