Luxury living in St. Louis comes in all shapes and sizes, but to find the perfect option, sometimes all you have to do is look up. This two-story penthouse offers unparalleled views and stunning features like a chef’s kitchen and elevator. We talked to the current owner to find out about life at the top.
What have you enjoyed about living in the CWE?
The most enjoyable thing for me is the ability to step outside my door and walk to almost anything. Some of St. Louis’ best restaurants are within a 5- to 10-minute walk, along with grocery stores, coffee shops, book stores and services—not to mention the incredible Forest Park, where I like to walk every morning.
Did you make any changes or upgrades to the property?
I added an all-glass, enclosed wine cellar that holds bottles I’ve collected over the years.
The views are incredible.
There are no others like them in the city. Whenever I entertain or have company over, I am told the views are the best in St. Louis because they are 360 degrees with no obstructions.
Do you have a favorite room?
I like them all for different reasons. My bedroom is my favorite because it’s my place of solace. When I’m not sleeping, I enjoy the wine room and having a glass from one of my favorite bottles with family or friends. I also love the dining room when all of the place settings are filled by my seven kids and seven grandkids!
What do you enjoy about the building?
Overall, it’s a world-class facility. The people are extremely friendly. The party room has everything you need to entertain. The pool area has multiple barbecue options and a very spacious deck, and it’s great for relaxing in the summer.
You feel as though you’re in New York City. The terrace space, ambiance, walking proximity to everything you need—all of these amenities are top notch for a fraction of the price. You can’t beat it, in my opinion.
