After making a jaw-dropping appearance at the Met Gala 2015, Beyonce is back in news along with her husband for purchasing a property in New Orleans. While Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are selling off their French Quarter home in Louisiana, Beyonce and Jay Z have invested $2.6 million in a church-turned-mansion in The Big Easy.

The new home in the Garden District of New Orleans was once a place of worship as the former Presbyterian church was built in 1925 and also served as a ballet school.

After its stint as a church and a ballet school, the building was converted for residential use in 2000. While the altar has been transformed in to the dining area and the third-floor-choir loft has been redesigned in to master suite. Original features include hardwood floors, columns and molding throughout.
