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. The newlywed - who had just cornered the cotton market, quadrupling the price of cotton - spared nothing on this New Orleans mansion for his new bride. The massive stained glass over the grand stair landing is replete with daisies, also known as French Marguerites, as a symbol of his love for Marguerite
