Beyonce and Jay-Z have purchased a New Orleans home for 2.6 million dollars located in Spanish Baroque. Its named La Casa de Castile which was once a home to the Westminster Presbyterian Church and later served as a ballet studio. This mansion is 13,000 square feet and equipped with 3 stories, 22 rooms which includes 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. The master bedroom features chandeliers and a claw foot tub and to top it all off it has the biggest roof top deck in the entire city.
The home was built in 1925 and features a lot of its original character and bones. I would have a good ol time designing this home while still honoring its character, charm and identity. Take a look at some of the pics. It’s such a diamond in the rough, but I know they will make it their own.
Look at the charm of this home, it has good privacy too. Some say it has a great location for mardi gras as well because it isn’t too far from the festivities.
I’m assuming this loft like space is the grand room. Although bare boned, it has so much potential, the home also has 26 foot ceilings. I would stain the floors a little darker and make the steps more grand.
The natural grand windows and marble flooring is to die for.
This kitchen I’m sure will be gutted and will be “beyoncefied” in no time.
A grand dining room that can entertain many.
This is another kitchen but the place originally has 3 apartments so I’m sure there is another kitchen that they will probably get rid of.
Umm…Not the nicest but again, potential!
Thanks for stopping by, until next time on our version of the lifestyles of the rich and famous!
What’s your taste in homes? Do you like the old charmed home or are you the “turn-key” type, where you like everything brand new.
