Rosegate, Estate of the Day
Today's home has a literary past. The Greek Revival-style home in New Orleans, known as Rosegate, is the former home of author Anne Rice. Rice owned the five-bedroom house from 1989 to 2004 when she sold it for $2.6 million as Big Time Listings reports. It was built in the 1850s and has high ceilings, large antique beveled mirrors, plated ceilings and antique murals in the dining room. The home is where Rice wrote many of her vampire novels and she set her Mayfair witches books in the home. Her husband Stan died of cancer in late 2002 and she moved out in 2004. The home is said to be haunted a couple of former owners who died in the house. The beautifully spooky home is listed at $3.75 million.
