About St Elizabeth's Condominiums

Aside from its stellar Uptown location on Napoleon Avenue and reputation as one of the top luxury condominium developments in New Orleans, St Elizabeth's has a long and colorful history dating back over 150 years.

Built in the 1860’s to 1870s, St. Elizabeth's is a stunning Italianate masonry structure comprising an entire city block on Napoleon Avenue in Uptown New Orleans.  The buildings that make up St Elizabeth’s are the largest cluster of Second Empire design architecture in New Orleans. Originally built as a boarding school for girls, it was converted to an orphanage in 1870, which was run by the Daughters of Charity until closing in 1989. 

In 1993, noted author Anne Rice purchased the property and used it as a personal residence, art studio, and doll museum.  During the  Rice’s ownership, the property was one of the largest private residences in the US and saw many high profile balls, celebrations and visits by well-known individuals, including President Clinton.

In 2003, Anne Rice sold St Elizabeth’s to a developer who undertook the conversion of the building into 28 luxury condominiums.  St Elizabeth’s is a landmark building and easily the most desirable historic condominium conversion in the Uptown area.  The units feature exposed brick walls, ceiling heights between 14 and 24 feet, antique pine flooring, exquisite baths and kitchens, gated parking and enchanting views of the common areas and Uptown New Orleans.  Located on the Mardi Gras parade route, St Elizabeth’s is a splendid place to live for all, especially the entertainer and Mardi Gras enthusiast!
