Grand Mansion in New Orleans Near Mardi Gras Parade Route

Image Source: Gardner Realtors

The namesake of the St. Charles Streetcar, St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans is known for its collection of grand traditional Southern mansions. Many of the city's wealthiest and most powerful residents have lived here over the years, and the neighborhood is also home to Loyola and Tulane universities. But today, perhaps the best thing about this street is the fact that it's one of the main Mardi Gras parade routes!

Set just steps from the paths of the Krewe of Crescent City and the Krewe of Elks Orleans parades, this vibrant Victorian on St. Charles Avenue offers many of the features you'd expect from a New Orleans mansion: a grand foyer with marble floors, double parlors, pocket doors, wood and marble mantels, and stained glass windows. There is also a fabulous master suite with walk-in closets, two dens, stunning lighting and soaring ceilings.

Step outside, and you'll find an in-ground pool, a pergola, an artist studio and a covered front porch -- where you may even catch a glimpse of Mardi Gras madness.
