This Just In: Nicolas Cage Lists Two New Orleans Properties

Prolific real estate investor Nicolas Cage is on the loose on a wild selling spree. Cage has already put his Las Vegas, Bel-Air, and Rhode Island properties on the market, and today we have news that he's listed his two properties in New Orleans. According to WDSU and Real Estalker, Cage has listed his historical property (shown right) in New Orleans's French Quarter, the most haunted home in the neighborhood, in addition to a Garden District mansion. The haunted home, known as the LaLaurie House (which I wrote about here), is listed for $3.9 million, $400,000 more than he paid for it in April 2007. To hear about the other property and see photos,

The listing for Cage's 13,176-square-foot, six-bedroom, five-full-and-two-half-bath Garden District mansion, which was once an active Catholic chapel, reads:

The most superlative of Garden District mansions with the best of every amenity. Ample room for a large family and big-time entertainment venue with formal gardens, parking, and everything anyone could possibly want in a most grand of grand, star-quality home.

It also features a pool and central air, which are ideal for the broiling NOLA heat. If the house looks familiar, it's probably because I quizzed you on the owner of it once, as it was once owned by gothic novelist Anne Rice. I've passed by the property hundreds of times myself and I can tell you it's an idyllic example of New Orleans architecture; I'd love to see interior photos.

I live in Uptown; both our area and the Garden District are well known for beautiful architecture. And, unfortunately, exorbitant rents :(

I thought I recognized that mansion. When I visited it there was a giant dog statue on the upper terrace.

When I was in New Orleans last year, I stayed at the Garden District Hotel and in the mornings, I'd walk around to find a coffee shop. The houses/mansions in that area are magnificent! I had no idea that Cage's mansion would be "worth" 3.9M! With the area being vulnerable to hurricanes, I figured it would've been a bit lower.

My aunt got married at the Lady of Perpetual Hope! At least I think it's the same place. It was owned by Ann Rice and she had her doll collection displayed there. Beautiful place.
