Today in honor of Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) I bring you inside a New Orleans penthouse that is right along that city’s parade route on St. Charles Avenue. I LOVE New Orleans. My best of friend FF with her husband and son (who is also my godson). It has been about six year since I went to New Orleans for Mardi Gras and rode in a parade, throwing beads to thousands of people and attended a black tie ball wearing long white gloves where FF’s husband was the king of his krewe – I wrote about that experience here. What a magical fun time. I miss New Orleans. Next year, without a doubt, I plan on being in New Orleans for Mardi Gras.
New Orleans is a city filled with grand homes and amazing residential architecture. I have visited some unbelievable spaces while there in the past. Always homes though. So I thought this cute penthouse featured here was a change of pace.
Located at 3823 St. Charles Avenue, this top floor apartment has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths in 2500 square feet. It is listed for $1.45 million by Dorian Bennett of Sothebys.
Here is the real estate listing description:
“Chic Penthouse in prime location on St. Charles Ave. featuring balcony with magnificent views. Located in sought after Emlah Court, designed by famed New Orleans architect Moise H. Goldstein. Fabulous residence features bright airy living with three bedrooms and three baths, formal dining, designer kitchen and breakfast room. Master suite includes quiet sitting room and sun porch. Building amenities feature elevator, security system with cameras, courtyard for entertaining, roof access, and gated parking.”
A pied-a-terre in New Orleans. That would be fun! Right?
Laissez le bon temps rouler! Happy Mardi Gras!
P.S. A shout out to FM and her family. FM is my best of friend FF’s neighbor and dear friend. FM and her family are so awesome…last time I was in New Orleans, FM invited me over for an impromptu “wine party” at her sister’s house and I had so much fun.
