#5: 232 Lake Marina Penthouse #3, New Orleans 70124

Overlooking the lake and the marina, this condo is one of two to crack the top ten sales in New Orleans for 2021. At over 4000 square feet, most would consider this a substantial single-family home and not a condo! This unit has three beds, 4.5 bathrooms and is complete with crystal chandeliers, an outdoor kitchen, and a media room!
