NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – The royals of the music industry, Jay Z and Beyonce have bought a new home in New Orleans Garden District neighborhood.
According to the Orleans Parish Assessor’s Office, an LLC owned by Sugarcane Park bought a former church and ballet school at 1527 Harmony St.
That LLC has a mailing address for Parkwood Entertainment LLC, which is Beyonce’s management company.
The 7 beds, 8 baths, 13,292 sqft mansion resembles more of a castle than a traditional home. According to Zillow.com, which currently lists the home, the mansion was built in 1925 as a place of worship for the Westminster Presbyterian congregation.
It’s also an ideal for the creative types that want large spaces and/or like to entertain. As one Grammy winner said, “The acoustics and vibes are great. I did my best writing ever, while watching the sunset from the rooftop garden!”
The Assessor’s office lists the home at $1,625,000. Zillow.com lists the home at $1,848,375.
