Peter W. Patout has always had a passion for the type of magic and old world charm that can only be found in historic properties. He’s licensed in Louisiana and Mississippi with Talbot Historic Properties and offers unrivaled levels of service for both buyers and sellers of significant historic properties.
Patout conducts extensive research exclusively for his clients. The culmination of his efforts is a detailed historic property portfolio — an invaluable marketing asset to sellers, and a coveted information tool for prospective buyers. Clients also have access to Patout’s highly developed local, national and global marketing network and listing services.
His depth of knowledge is rare. Patout studied architecture for two years and received a business degree from University of Louisiana in Lafayette, and studied Louisiana architecture history at Tulane University in New Orleans.
In 1984, his passion for historic fine art and furnishings led him to open Peter Patout Antiques & Appraisals in New Orleans. Louisiana furniture, fine and decorative arts are areas of expertise.
Patout’s appreciation for historic properties extends to his personal life. He’s a proud long-term resident and historic property owner in the French Quarter of New Orleans. He grew up in Southwest Louisiana among the sugarcane fields of Bayou Teche country where he still maintains a family property in Patoutville. HIs roots run deep throughout the MS Gulf Coast region where his family has owned property for over 300 years.
As a student of history, Patout continues to blend his passions for art and architecture. He is a founding member and active on the board of the New Orleans Chapter of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art and is active in numerous cultural and preservation organizations. (See list of professional associations below.)
