High Dollar Homes: The historic Jax Brewery

Updated:
NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Jax Brewery is known for shops and restaurants, but it also boasts incredible luxury living.

Jax beer was made in the old building on Decatur from 1890s until the 1970s. Now, owning a piece of the historic property can cost you more than a million bucks.

"You're in the 600 block of Decatur Street. You walk a second in any direction and you'll hear great jazz and great music of all sorts," said Dorian Bennett of Dorian Bennett/Sotheby's.

"You open right onto Jackson Square, the cathedral or the Pontalba buildings and the river. It's your choice."

A condo in the historic structure celebrates what was, and shows off what the old brewery has become. Exposed brick is a feature.

Bennett says a two to three bedroom luxury apartment is a $1,200,000. The living room is spacious, but look up to see the detail that is rare.

"Look at the draping on that with the leaves and the crest in the center and the killer Empire fixture to dress out the room. It's an octagonal shaped room," said Bennet.

At 2,200 square feet, this home is like a beautiful jewel with views that take your breath away.

"Look outside and see the ferries and cruise ships coming in and out of the westbank on the other side. It's incredibly peaceful," Bennett said.

On the other side of the room is an opulent eating area and desk with extraordinary windows that frame the famous Pontalba Apartments.

Thick ornate moldings frame the whole residence.

"This is as beautiful as anything I've ever seen for this amount of money and this location," he said.

A bedroom takes you back in time to old New Orleans dressed up for a former century as the river goes by. A bathroom with a glass shower shows the modern side of the apartment. Another bedroom is perfect for kids.

Bennett boasts the kitchen has everything, top of the line appliances and granite countertops. It's whatever one would want in a luxury apartment or a luxury home.

"This is perfect for someone who wants the magic of New Orleans and not have a yard and other maintenance and live this kind of lifestyle and have a home right here."
