Today's estate is one of the grandest in New Orleans, a city known for its grand homes. The Brown Mansion on St. Charles Avenue was built in 1904 for W.P. Brown, a local cotton mogul. The Romanesque Revival home has nine bedrooms and approximately 14,000 square feet of space. The home, which looks like it belongs on a university campus, was built with the finest materials and has ornate plaster details, carved wood ceilings and massive fireplaces. The stone home sits on private gated grounds by landscape architect Rene Fransen and has a terraced patio with a heated pool and a hot tub. There is also a built-in three car garage. It is listed at $8.5 million.
