Orphanage-Turned-Anne Rice Home in New Orleans Not (Quite) as Scary as You'd Think

A former orphanage that later housed New Orleans' own spooky scribe Anne Rice—it was among her many New Orleans homes—the St. Elizabeth Condos have to have ghosts, right? Three units are up for grabs: the most grand, going for a cool $4,950,000, used to be a chapel and still has terrifying church amenities, including giant stained glass windows ("copious stained glass abound," says the listing), "unheard of" 24-feet ceilings, crown molding crosses, and Godly white counters that look like altars. It's "fit for a celebrity or business titan" or "jetsetters," according to the effusive listing.
