WATCH: This Gorgeous Victorian Home in Uptown New Orleans Is on the Market for $1.95 Million
While tourists visiting New Orleans may be tempted to linger in the French Quarter, it really is a missed opportunity if they don’t venture out to the city’s Uptown area, which is home to just as much history, beautiful parks, and grand historic mansions. 1322 State Street is one of those grand historic homes and is currently listed by Prieur Properties for $1.95 million. The Victorian home is just four blocks from Audubon Park, but also boasts its own private oasis in the backyard, giving you plenty of options to kick back and relax.
The circa-1892 home retains many original features and architectural details, but has undergone several renovations that have seamlessly brought it into the 21st century. The 3,563 square-foot home is bright and airy thanks to the 12-foot ceilings, neutral white color palette, and lots of windows. Take a look at some of the most gorgeous spaces in this home, below.

The 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom house is full of old-world glamour.
The house boasts traditional Victorian features on its exterior, including the intricate molding and trim work, detailed window panes, and a large bay window on both the first and second floor.
A sweet swing sits under the arched porch columns, providing the perfect spot to catch a breeze in New Orleans’ balmy climate. And while the glass isn’t actually stained, the front doors and transom window above feature intricate designs that still allow you to see outside.
Off the foyer is the formal living room, which gets lots of natural light from four large windows looking out to the street and side yard. The house has 13 antique chandeliers in total, which lend a feeling of old-world glamour to almost every room. The stunning ceiling medallions and marble fireplaces are original to the home.
Connected to the living room is the formal dining room, with space for a table to seat 8 or more. Widened doorways to the living room and main hallway create a more open-concept feel to this older house while still retaining the original layout.
The spacious kitchen is a gorgeous mix of old and new. Marble countertops and silver hardware complement the chandelier and eye-catching vent hood above the stove. Plus, the high-end appliances and ample storage space make this gourmet cookspace a modern chef’s dream. Attached to the kitchen is a more casual eating area as well as the cozy family room, complete with wet bar.
The Master Suite
Upstairs, the master bedroom includes this beautiful sitting area in the bay window, complete with an intricately accented fireplace and the same detailed window panes seen on the first floor. The master suite also includes a large marble bathroom and walk-in closet.
There are three additional bedrooms in the house, and three and a half extra bathrooms that have all been updated—a rare feature in such an old home.
In addition to such a gorgeous interior, the home’s backyard is an equally beautiful space that will be tempting you to spend more time outside than in. A saltwater pool (that also can be heated) is surrounded by immaculate landscaping and a spacious courtyard area that’ll make New Orleans’ steamy summers all the more tolerable.
