The Scarmuzza Family Home
Owning a piece of history comes with a responsibility to respect the heritage it has and to restore its beauty. While the process of making it workable in modern times often brings with it the risk of losing so much of its original features, it is those who understand the importance of preserving the details that prove the worthiness to possess such rare gems. Countable among the gems that crown the streets of New Orleans is the home owned by Keith and Supreeya Scarmuzza, a three-story Victorian built in 1905 by the renowned architect Thomas Sully. A grand-nephew of the famous painter by the same name, Sully is considered to be one of the most prominent Louisiana architects of the late nineteenth century and is credited for designing a number of famous residences and public buildings throughout New Orleans.
