The Most Stunning Victorian Mansion Just Hit the Market in New Orleans
The elegantly remodeled home, which was once owned by a famed novelist, dates back to the 1880s and still has the original stained glass windows in the center hall. The 8,747-square-foot home is listed on realtor.com for $4,985,500 and has no shortage of Southern charm (or fireplaces). Although it does boast some of the original pieces, the home's kitchen and bathrooms have been tastefully updated. Its mix of modern amenities and Victorian character make it a must-see.
