Sperry Van Ness/Gilmore Auction To Auction Historic French Quarter Home On May 8th By Order Of The U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Eastern District Of Louisiana Case No. 09-12042

Thursday, 19 April 2012

Sperry Van Ness/Gilmore Auction has been commissioned by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court to auction the former Madame "X" Mansion located in the historic French Quarter at 927 Toulouse Street, New Orleans, Louisiana. The property will be offered at public auction on Tuesday, May 8th, 12 noon at the Maison Dupuy Hotel, 1001 Toulouse, NOLA.

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) April 19, 2012

This historic home was built in 1825 for the Avegno family and features Greek revival architecture, Federal mouldings, a 4-story main home, 2-story rear dependency quarters, carriageway and courtyard. The home was once a landmark - one of New Orleans' earliest "sky scrapers", its four stories towering over other buildings in the French Quarter at the time. It was elegantly designed with a graceful center staircase inside and perfectly proportioned rooms framed by tall windows. Its intricate wrought iron balconies were monogrammed with the owner’s initials "PA" for Phillipe Avegno.

Virginie Avegno Gautreau, the subject of artist John Singer Sargent's scandalous masterpiece Madame "X", was born in the home. The home went through a major renovation in the late nineties both modernizing and restoring the historic property.
