The desired location in Old Metairie, the custom-built luxury home with modern amenities, the pool and outdoor kitchen, the third-floor media room, and the new roof installed in 2023, were all driving points for realtor Carol Jambon’s clients on the sale of 222 Mulberry Drive.

The 4-bedroom, 6-bathroom home – designed and built in 2009 by the renowned builder Hyman Bartolo Jr. – sold for $2,110,000 on March 28. Jambon, of Mirambell Realty, was the sales agent, while Alex Guidry, of Keller Williams Realty New Orleans, was the listing agent.

The home has 5,790 square feet of living space and is on a massive, 8,999 square foot lot. It is in the Cottam Park subdivision near Pontiff Playground.

“My clients are local buyers who loved the location, moved, and always wanted to return. They looked specifically for a pool with an outdoor kitchen, and the media room with the big screen and seating on the third floor was also a big plus,” said Jambon, who has lived in Old Metairie for 39 years and a real estate professional for 43 years. “I have sold thousands of homes, and I’ll sum this one up by what the inspector told me, ‘I have done over 15,000 inspections, and I have never seen a home with so many top-of-the-line amenities and sheer quality throughout. When this home was built, there was no expense spared.’”

The interior of the home was recently painted in 2023, reflecting a modern and fresh color palette. The front and backyards feature professionally landscaped grounds by The Plant Gallery. The new exterior paint was also completed in 2022, along with a new roof installed in 2023. “A new roof always helps to bring down the insurance costs, which is critical given the situation of rising insurance costs right now,” said Jambon.

The 2,400-square-foot, first floor features 12-foot ceilings, and an open floor plan with a foyer connecting to the dining room to the immediate left, office to the immediate right, and living room, breakfast nook, and kitchen towards the rear of the house. The kitchen has an island and wet bar. The kitchen opens into both the living room and breakfast nook that have windows overlooking the pool and backyard. The first floor also consists of an attached garage, and bedroom towards the rear with access to the covered patio and backyard that has a heated saltwater pool, hot tub, cabana, cemented pavers, and an outdoor kitchen.

The 2,400-square-foot second floor has three bedrooms, including the primary bedroom with a master bathroom that features heated floors. There are walk-in closets throughout the second floor. There is a sitting room and a laundry room, also on the second floor. There is a double staircase leading to both the second and third floors.

The state-of-the-art media room is on the third floor, which measures 655 square feet. The media room has two rows of movie theatre style seating and a big screen. The floor also has a storage room, bathroom, and wet bar. The house is equipped with hurricane-rated shutters and a 48-kilowatt standby Generac generator.
