Did Beyoncé and Jay Z Just Buy This New Orleans Church?
Just one house off the main Mardi Gras parade route, the home has hosted weddings and major recording stars. According to the former listing, one Grammy winner said the “acoustics and vibes are great. I did my best writing ever, while watching the sunset from the rooftop garden.”
A light-filled great room serves as a hub for lots of nooks and crannies, including a step-up dining room, a loft-style sitting room, and a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.
In January, a company with ties to Beyoncé took ownership of the home. It had been listed for $2.6 million. Her sister, Solange Knowles, co-owns a clothing boutique called Exodus Goods in the French Quarter.
The master suite, which manages to be cozy while also exuding a royal vibe, adjoins a walk-in closet and a bathroom that’s decked out with a massive old-style wooden vanity, a large antique bathtub, and a separate shower.
