500 Walnut Street
New Orleans, Louisiana, United States


Broad, columned double porches adorned with an iron lantern below allow for an abundance of sunlight within. A bricked walk, iron rail and hedged border nicely contour this prime corner lot home. The foyer is graced with a grand spindle balustrade stair. Coordinating antique brass chandeliers with fleur-de-lis designs hang in both the foyer and living rooms.

The living room offers beautiful park views from floor-to-ceiling draped windows with matching valances, as well as
a marble mantle above a functioning, gas/wood-burning fireplace with an original iron summer front. Pocket doors lead from the living room to the study which is also filled with natural light from bay windows and is accented by pecky cypress paneled walls and built-in shelves to the ceiling.

The vibrant formal dining room is hexagon-shaped with
four draped windows (one opening onto a garden path
leading to the yard) and an exquisite crystal chandelier, as well as access to the butler’s pantry and kitchen beyond. The kitchen is abundant in cabinet space and includes a double oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, and double sink.

The generous master bedroom contains two large windows which access the deep upper balcony overlooking the park.
This spacious bedroom also boasts a marble fireplace and
mantle above a functioning, wood-burning fireplace,
echoed from the Living Room below. A full bath adjoins the room.

The large second bedroom offers double closets and a set of built-in shelves within an exquisite enclosed sun porch.
The porch is bordered with wrap-around windows nestled in the surrounding magnolia trees.

The remaining bedrooms are filled with sunlight and provide plenty of closet space. One bedroom connects to a delightful sun room with more built-in shelves - a possible office - and panoramic views of the Audubon neighborhood.

A work room, protected by one of two central AC systems in the house, offers many possibilities – game room, exercise room, extra storage, etc. – all overlooking the vast yard beyond.

A laundry area upstairs contains a Whirlpool Commercial Quality® washer and dryer and generous linen closet.

The fenced yard, spacious enough for a pool, contains a patio area, an exquisite historic oak, and landscaped edges.
