While some of the most expensive houses in Louisiana are located in New Orleans and Lake Pontchartrain, others are in other parts of the state. Here are five of them that might be worth looking into.
1. The Nottoway
The Nottoway is a lavish plantation owned by John Hampden Randolph. It's a AAA Four-Diamond property with one of the most beautiful Antebellum mansions in Louisiana, and its sweeping views of the grounds are an impressive draw for visitors.
It was built in 1859 by Randolph, a prominent Louisiana cotton planter. The Civil War began soon after the house was completed and the plantation became occupied by both Union and Confederate troops.
Fortunately, the plantation was spared from destruction. Randolph and his wife Emily stayed in the home with their two youngest children, hoping to keep it safe from damage.
2. The Uptown Mansion
The Uptown Mansion is a spectacular home in New Orleans. It was originally built in 1884 and is a great example of the city’s architectural heritage.
The house has a lot to offer, including a number of features that make it the perfect place for entertaining friends and family. There’s also a wine cellar, spa room and even a private cocktail pool that’s sure to please guests of all ages!

3. The Audubon Place Mansion
A street lined with magnificent old oaks and sheltered behind an iron arch and turreted gatehouses, Audubon Place is a coveted enclave of the uber-elite of New Orleans. It’s home to 28 houses, and is known as the most expensive residential real estate in the city.
This exclusive neighborhood was the creation of developer George Blackwelder, who planned a single-street development on the western side of Tulane University. His plan was for builders to construct large single-family homes on the 28 lots.
The idea of a private, gated street appealed to New Orleanians who wanted their own little slice of the city. They voted among themselves in 1900 to keep their street and enclave privately owned.
4. The Oaks on Audubon
Audubon Hollow is an upscale gated community with semi-custom homes. These homes draw inspiration from Acadian and Creole architecture with simple brick veneer and stucco exteriors.
The area is a short drive to shopping and dining spots. It is also zoned to high-quality schools.
It is also an acclaimed golf course community and the home of Audubon Country Club. The country club features a Joe Lee designed 18-hole golf course with a 300-member cap.
The community is very welcoming, so you’ll have no problem making new friends quickly. There are groups for all kinds of hobbies, including a mahjong group and book club. The residents also have access to a yacht club near by.
