Dreaming of a 1970s-built "French 18th century style" St. Charles Avenue mansion? Brokerbabble says this four-bedroom, nine-bath home is "one of the South's finest" with elegant entertaining areas, an elevator, pool, and a "beautiful staircase with bronze-capped railing." Oh, and don't forget the pillared powder room! This 8,600-square foot pad listed this week with a whooping $3.95-million asking price. Interesting sidenote: a little digging around revealed that a mansion built in 1897 originally sat on this property, but was demolished in the late 1960s.
