Riding down Metairie Road, this gem of a home might escape your view.

Sitting at an interesting angle on one of the region's most coveted streets, 3 Tokalon Place doesn't face the bustle of Metairie Road. Neatly tucked behind a pristine white brick wall, the sizable manse is a private paradise.

It beckons with a lifestyle that is ... well, stylish.

With six bedrooms, more than six baths and more than 6,500 square feet of space for $3.395 million, this custom home overflows with amenities.


Built in 2015, it greets visitors with a stately auto court and access to the three-car garage and plentiful parking.


A welcoming foyer begins the journey into the house.


The sturdy double front doors open to a foyer anchored by a staircase to the second floor.


The formal dining room is ready for entertaining.

An elegant formal dining room is just steps inside, making entertaining effortless. On the opposite side of the foyer is a private office with ample storage and shelving.


Passing by the easily accessible elevator, the great room is grounded by a large fireplace. Windows and French doors allow plenty of natural light into the expansive space, where cabinetry and shelves afford display and utilitarian space.


The kitchen is a place for culinary creativity.


A flexible space doubles as a cozy seating area or breakfast room.

Through a large opening lies the kitchen, packed with stainless appliances, hard-surface counters, an island with seating and a window-lined space for either additional seating or a breakfast room. Ceiling details draw the eye upward, adding volume to the culinary arena.


Opulent relaxation is found in the primary suite.
