There is a house in New Orleans

Potential home owners might be interested to know that the New Orleans house used in the film Benjamin Button, which was nominated for 13 Oscars, is on the market.

Tthe Garden District mansion is 7,800-square feet, and has a big yard, six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a music room, a library, and a reception hall.

"It's much nicer than what people saw in the movie," said real estate agent Dorian Bennett. "It's more like Tara than a home for old people."

The asking price for the house is $2.85 million, which is being sold to settle the late owner's estate.

According to the Times Picayune, the house was built almost 200 years ago in 1832 It has housed three generations of the William T. Nolan II’s family (Nolan’s daughter, Ashley, plays a doctor in Button). It has survived several hurricanes, including Betsy and Katrina. See the listing and a 30 picutre slide show here.
