Dating to 1857, the Dabney House is a masterpiece by renowned architect James Gallier, Jr. Standing as the pinnacle of Greek Revival elegance in the heart of New Orleans’ Garden District, this historic gem embodies the timeless allure of classic proportions and meticulous craftsmanship. Exterior grandeur greets you with fluted Corinthian and Ionic columns and a second-floor adorned by a delicate rose-pattern cast-iron rail. Step inside, where the first floor captivates with 14-foot ceilings, heart of pine flooring, original marble mantles, and ornate plaster medallions. The double parlors offer splendid spaces for gatherings, while the recently renovated gourmet kitchen, equipped with a Subzero fridge, separate freezer, and a Wolf Range, invites culinary creativity. A stylish study, sun-soaked sunroom, and a versatile bonus storage area/catering kitchen complete the lower level. Upstairs reveals five charming bedrooms, including the primary suite boasting a luxurious new bathroom. Spanning the front of the second floor, a glorious family room opens to an upper gallery, providing the ideal vantage point for Mardi Gras parade viewing. Outside, enchanting gardens grace the landscape with slate and brick patios, mature flora, a delightful sugar kettle fountain, and ample space for a potential pool. Rare two-car covered parking is a coveted amenity, as is the spacious separate 1 bedroom/1.5 bath guest apartment featuring a private entrance. Lovingly maintained throughout the years, the Dabney House has earned its place in history, documented by the Library of Congress and featured in prestigious publications. This is the epitome of grand living on one of the world's most exquisite streets, offering a unique opportunity to own a piece of New Orleans' architectural heritage.
