If you are like us, you have walked by this enormous property on Bainbridge Street en route to The Irish Times or Catahoula and wondered loudly what the compound was doing in the otherwise jam-packed Queen Village. Maybe you were taken aback by the palatial brick facade or the park-like yard with its stately trees and pillars (not to mention the wrought iron). Now that the $2.6 million home has hit the market, we know that the inside is just as grand as the outside.
The nearly 7,000 square foot property spans several parcels of land between 113 and 121 Bainbridge Street but manages to remain relatively private. Mature trees and shrubbery obscure the home’s multiple terraces and garden area from gawkers. There is also – obviously – a gated entrance as well as a security system and garage parking for up for four vehicles.
Inside, the entertaining areas of the home are striking. Chandeliers, fireplaces and marble are nearly as ubiquitous as stained glass. The staircase features a dome of stained glass and a recessed stained glass panel marks another hallway. Pressed ceilings mark the living room.
The home also features an elevator, which makes for convenient access to the roof deck. A hot tub is just inside, making it useful in any weather. A chandelier hangs above, because of course.
