Built 1968


Stunning 18th-century French-inspired mansion located on the coveted Uptown corner of St. Charles Avenue and State Street just steps to Audubon Park and the Streetcar line offers a lifestyle of privacy, comfort, and sophistication. Constructed in 1968 with meticulous attention to detail, the residence sits on a sprawling corner lot (approximately 1/3 acre). Architect John Gibb Fraser of Houston created a one-of-a-kind floor plan that seamlessly blends opulence with functionality, resulting in a home that took three years to build. The expansive floor plan, totaling over 8,600 square feet (approximately 11,000 total square feet), encompasses four generously sized bedrooms, a large playroom that doubles as an optional fifth bedroom or guest suite, seven full baths and two half baths inside. Formal living and dining rooms, a family room with an adjoining wet bar, a library, gorgeous entrance foyer and a gourmet kitchen contribute to the residence's grandeur.

Architectural splendor is evident throughout, with elaborate millwork, paneled walls, 12-foot ceilings, wood floors throughout and light-filled rooms that offer views of the stunning side yard, front terrace, and the iconic St. Charles Avenue. Original antiqued gilt bronze hardware and onyx bathrooms add a touch of timeless elegance. The residence features four working gas fireplaces, a whole-house generator, an elevator, ample storage, sitting rooms, large closets, and large laundry room.

The backyard serves as a private resort oasis, complete with a gorgeous swimming pool, courtyard, garage, outdoor shower, 1100 square foot loggia, expansive side yard and grassy area, English-style garden, and lush grounds. 6-foot brick walls and a wrought-iron fence surround the property. A 2-car garage and an inviting side entrance/loggia at the back of the home complement the circular driveway at the front, which provides parking for three cars and a 39-foot balustraded entrance terrace.
