A little history of St. Elizabeth’s was built as a boarding school in the 1860’s and later in the 1870’s was turned into an orphanage. Before becoming condos it was the home of Anne Rice the famous New Orleans author who had restored much of the property to be used as her private home. The St. Elizabeths were transformed into historic luxury condos in Uptown New Orleans in 2005. This link will give you some ideas as to when Anne Rice had the home. Anne Rice-St-Elizabeths
The 28 units which encompasses the entire block with new town-homes built in the rear of the old building. I have not seen the units recently as not many have come on the market since they were completed in 2005. There is off street parking for all. A nice pool in the rear of the building. Exercise room and fenced grounds as common areas for all residents to enjoy. One person actually bought the Chapel to make it into a condo.
Many of the historic features were kept in tack such as exposed brick, ornate fireplaces and mantles, loft ceilings, crown molding, and wood floors. This along with the modern kitchens and many updates is like getting new construction. Since there are few resales the origional owners must be enjoying their home and investment.
There is currently one listing for sale in the complex. It is one of the new town-homes that are located in the rear of the complex. This is listed for $595,000. There have been a couple of sales since the beginning of 2007. One unit sold for $748,000 and was 2100 sq. ft. of elegant living which was $369 per sq. ft. There was also a large one bedroom unit that sold for $345,000 which was 1080 sq. ft. which is very large for a one bedroom in the New Orleans condo market.
