Music’s hottest couple is putting down roots in NOLA. According to Zillow, rumor has it Beyoncé and Jay Z have purchased a converted church in the Garden District of New Orleans for $2.6 million.

First built in 1925 as a Presbyterian church, the 13,292-square-foot space was then converted into a ballet school before being converted to a single-family home with three 1,000-square-foot apartments.

This purchase comes after the couple sold their Tribeca condo in New York City and made a very public move to Los Angeles.

It’s clear Beyonce and Jay Z have great taste. The converted church has a distinctive exterior design, featuring wrought iron and dramatic window arches.

 

Up close, the beauty shows a bit of its age.

 

As you enter, you immediately experience a sense of space.

 

The double-height windows produce a lot of light throughout the apartment.

 

The colors used throughout the home lend it a bright and open feel.

 

An office sits off to the side, with plenty of room to make million-dollar deals.

 

The kitchen features those same 25-foot ceilings and plenty of room to whip up a world-class meal.

 

The master bedroom suite has been said to have a royal vibe, according to Zillow.

 

Appropriate for a couple considered music royalty.
