    The Real World: New Orleans 2 - House


    Thanks to Nolasaint's point in the right direction and my awesome research skills, I think we've got it!!

    1633 Dufossat St. Uptown New Orleans. 7 bedrooms, 8 baths, currently on the market for 1.7 million dollars. According to Sotheby's website, it is 9,860 square feet, although there have been other accounts as to its size.

    Found this in the NOLA permit database:



    Pictures coming in a minute.

    Unless someone else setting a house up for filming, you do have it. Enjoy folks. As for the locals, I think we can show some southern hospitality and be sure to be good hosts and not all show up on the door step

    things like this can really help the city, so let's make a good impression on the crew, and for the city when the show airs.

    I'm sure you wouldve gotten it pretty soon either way. It's made it's way into the local gossip so it was only a matter of time til it broke here.

    Looks pretty swank. If the house looks familiar, it was because NBA player Baron Davis first showed it to us on MTV's Cribs.

    Floor plans from zillow.com. On this first picture, the pool area is located to the left of the master bedroom and below the greatroom:





    Here's the description from them.

    A lovely landscaped front garden leads to an elegant entrance and foyer with a dramatic staircase to the major living areas. This grand home features high ceilings and wonderful hardwood floors throughout plus large elegant windows with splendid views on the city. Also included is a fun additional apartment which would make for a private screening room, billiard room, or a separate apartment for guests or live-in staff.
    And for those of who you might prefer to see it with your own eyes:

    Eclectic Home

    Baron Davis' episode of MTV Cribs.

    I'm assuming one of the smaller bedrooms (perhaps the one on the first floor) will be used as the confessional, with another one of the bedrooms used by production for their personal interviews.

    According to permits, Baron Davis still owns the house.

    Good job team. Another BMP house foiled haha.

    There are two permits by the way.

    Yes I saw that, but the other permit didn't strike me as important as this one which clearly says "once production is complete" and is the exact same wording as the permits purchased for the DC house.

    Baron Davis is listed as the owner on both permits, which obviously makes him still the legal owner of the house.

    It looks really nice. I'd wish (but doubt) that MTV/BMP keeps that design and look rather than going ultra tacky.

    I agree. I was hoping when I found the permit site that the permit text would be searchable, because I was going to use the word "production"

    Seems historical (unless this is from a former property at the same address)

    And it's only a 4 min drive from the old RW house.

    Yes, Baron Davis in his episode of Cribs said that the house is over 150 years old and that when he bought it, he was told it was haunted.
