Peek Inside Anne Rice's Former New Orleans Estate

She clearly appreciates high drama in her decor as much as she does in her novels.

Author Anne Rice, vampire queen of modern literature (tell that to your Twilight-loving daughter) had a thing for New Orleans, which she once called a "strange and decadent city." She grew up there, set her books there, and eventually bought this estate there — plus a couple more homes — in the wake of her novels' successes.

She's not the current owner, but the historic property languished on the market for five long years. It eventually sold (for a hefty $2.1 million), so we jumped at the opportunity to snag a peek inside while we could.

Though the ornate six-bedroom manse was built in 1881, about 100 years later than the setting of Rice's Interview With a Vampire, we can totally picture Lestat skulking around among the Victorian Gothic touches. Intricate ceiling medallions, gilded trim, and a stark, deliberate formality certainly channel the drama of Rice's novels. But the palatial windows and twelve (!) fireplaces — neither on a vampire's list of favorite things — make it clear that she can, in fact, leave work at work.
