Designed by renowned architect James Gallier and built in 1857, The Dabney House’s original owner was Lavania Dabney, one of the first women to own her own home in the Garden District.

The three-story Greek Revival home is near the streetcar line, a block from Jackson Avenue, and has been renovated several times over the past decade. At 6,124 square feet, it has five bedrooms and three and a half baths, 14-foot ceilings, double parlors, original plaster medallions and marble fireplace mantles, pine floors and unique millwork on its mahogany staircase and exterior columns. The side yard has patios, fountains and ironwork, according to listing information.

The home went on the market last September with a price tag of nearly $2 million. After a price drop, it went under contract in late May for nearly $1.4 million.
