Welcome to 337 W. Moody

337 W. Moody

Twenty years ago, the solid and comfortable 1933 house set in the mature gardens and plantings of 337 W. Moody, and overlooking the picturesque serpentine lake, was tripled in size, and given a handsome contemporary makeover. Today it is a stunning board and batten monochromatic dwelling on the exterior with a calming clean open and well-lit interior.

The architect for the project was the well-respected Tore Wallin of Perez Architects in New Orleans. In his plan, a one story private master bedroom wing was added on the lake side; and a two-story guest wing was connected, with a covered patio between, to the other end of the long rambling structure.

Covered Patio

The center part, which is the original house, has a living room and a staff bedroom on one side, a huge dining room and kitchen on the other, and two bedrooms on the second floor. There is a wonderful old fashioned screened in porch filled with wicker furniture that ties it all together and overlooks the back gardens.

The one-story master bedroom wing has a large sitting room/office, a spacious master bath area, and the master bedroom itself with a huge bay window sitting area over-looking the grounds and the lake.

Galley Kitchen

The guest wing turns to the back and connects to the carport with a huge covered patio between. The guest wing has a large pool room entertaining area with an upstairs bedroom area, and a separate guest room with a separate entrance on the ground level…and tons of closets and storage areas.

The long and asphalt paved entrance drive circles around the house, with the carport and parking area on the kitchen end, and a drive down to the 30’ x 40’ metal workshop and garage building, tucked away on the other.

It is a handsome and comfortable estate which has been lovingly developed and maintained.

Welcome to The Chapel…#16

1314 Napoleon Avenue, #16

The Chapel (#16) of St. Elizabeth’s located at 1314 Napoleon Avenue is arguably the most unique and luxurious condominium conversion in Uptown New Orleans with an equally intriguing history.

Centrally located between the downtown area of the city and Audubon Park St. Elizabeth’s is a 47,000 square feet three-story brick edifice consisting of three buildings which boasts the largest cluster of Second Empire design architecture in New Orleans and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The central portion was designed and built by Thomas Mulligan for the Daughters of Charity in 1865 to function originally as a girls’ boarding school and then a girls’ orphanage. In 1880 the Prytania Street Wing was added and between 1883-1885 architect, Albert Diettel enlarged the structure by adding the Perrier Street Wing and a mansard roof.

Kitchen

In 1989 the orphanage moved to Marrero and St. Elizabeth’s was put on the market for sale. In 1993 renowned author and New Orleans native, Anne Rice purchased the property as a private residence and added the exterior angels on either side of the main entrance. In the early 2000s this KFK Group acquired St. Elizabeth for the purposes on condo conversion. The project was completed in 2004 transforming the former orphanage into twenty-eight distinct condominiums and five newly constructed town homes with shared amenities including a beautiful pool and patio area.

Office

The Chapel (#16) is a stunningly renovated 5000 square foot condo with 24-ft-high vaulted ceilings flanked by 17-ft stained glass windows and hardwood floors throughout. Light pours into the open plan living room, dining room and gourmet kitchen with Thermador appliances, Berloni cabinets, jeweled, mirror finishes, Caesarstone countertops, a butlers pantry and wine room. A centered two-story tower houses master bedroom with en suite bath, heated mirrors and 16-jet shower on the first floor, two bedrooms with full baths on the second floor. Just off the tower is a screening room or study with a blood-red tiled full bath. Amenities include beautiful pool with two assigned parking spaces.

1314 Napoleon #16, the Chapel, is being offered for $2,800,000.
