The Mardi Gras House

A Gorgeous Victorian Painted Lady


Known locally as 'The Mardi Gras House' due to its vibrant colors and proximity to Mardi Gras festivities, this home is a truly stunning Victorian masterpiece. This three-story antebellum home was commissioned by Frank Petrinovich in 1899 as a boarding house, and the design by architect James Hutchinson showcases the iconic painted-lady style, part of a lineage contributing to Mobile's architectural legacy.

This impressive home is nestled on a tree-lined street in downtown Mobile in walking distance to the Government Plaza, Civic Center, Convention Center, Mardi Gras Museum, several parks, and the downtown dining and entertainment district. The residence exudes historic charm while offering modern comforts and boast 5 full bedrooms with 5.5 bathrooms, plus a full bath in the walk-up attic.

The Victorian architecture is further highlighted with a wraparound porch, two balconies, 11-foot ceilings on first and second floors, and abundant natural light from oversized windows. Interior features include a grand foyer, traditional living room and dining room with pocket doors.

A fully equipped kitchen, pantry, laundry room, and a sizable half-bathroom are also on the first floor. Elaborately painted foyer and stairs are adorned with red, white, and black spindles and gold accents. Hardwood flooring throughout includes original 120 year old floors on the second floor. The kitchen, laundry, foyer, and most bathrooms have ceramic tile.

The lovely Magnolia room on the first floor currently serves as a private bedroom with a full bathroom, but was originally a sitting room. The second floor features four full bedrooms, each with a private en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom Jasmine boasts a custom 36" x 72” spa shower, front balcony, and a non-functioning fireplace. Additional bedrooms (Wisteria, Camellia, Azalea) offer distinctive features and access to balconies. Plus, a stationary full-size staircase leads to the third floor with added living space, storage, and yet another full bathroom.

This house has withstood both the test of time and our southern storms thanks to its sturdy design, build, and solid foundation. And you will be happy to know that there have been no reported ghostly occurrences; the house has a warm and inviting aura and seemingly thrives on being occupied, cherished, and cared for.

This dwelling is a testament to meticulous design- make this special historic house your home and enjoy the comfort of southern living as it was intended.
