The late Paul Prudhomme’s multi-building residence and compound just sold for 2.45 million dollars, reports City Business. The Marigny property has three single-family homes, a pool house, and a warehouse on one lot, totaling 10,288 square feet. It was the most high dollar home sold in New Orleans this week.
The compound includes a commercial kitchen, “trompe l’oeil walls, pools and pool house, gardens, water features, a stained glass depiction of the chef, and an amazing bathtub with blue and white tiled steps,” according to Curbed. Note that the bathtub is a massive tub with a small staircase descending down into it. Another room is completely covered in trellis.
The house hit the market a month after Prudhomme’s death in 2015 with an asking price of $3,385,000, according to Curbed New Orleans.
Prudhomme died in 2015. He was 75.
