Romantic Home #8: 4717 St. Charles is the grandest home in this city famous for grandiose southern estates and love potions. This Romanesque Revival mansion with blue sandstone exterior, ornate plaster details and movie-star pool was built by William Perry Brown in 1905 as a wedding present for his new wife, Marguerite Braughn Brown.
