from the homeowner » Sitting on 4.76 acres, 9755 Old Warson Road has the air of stately country estate. It’s hard to believe that it’s nestled in Ladue. It combines the space and natural beauty of rural living with the convenience of an urban setting. The current homeowner has loved living in the home. “It will be tough to leave,” she notes. “Every time
I return home, it’s always so nice to be back.”

What do you like about the home’s location?
You can’t beat the location. It’s like living in the country in the heart of the city. It’s very secluded and private, but you also can walk to Old Warson Country Club. Ladue has access to just about everywhere—you’re five minutes from Clayton and 12 from downtown.

Do you have a favorite room or space?
It’s just fun to walk through the house. Every room is very detailed. There are a lot of windows, so there is plenty of natural light. Many of the rooms also have fireplaces, which I always thought was neat. The home was built around 1926, so it’s almost a century home. They don’t build houses like this anymore. When people come over, they tell me they feel like they’re at a French or English estate.

How is the home for entertaining?
It’s a great place to entertain. You can easily host 100 people with no problem. My husband and I would hold a lot of outdoor parties because we have a really lovely pool area. There’s a barn with a kitchen, which is great if you want to have a catered event and keep the kitchen clear. The separate guest house has two bedrooms, a full bath, living area and kitchen. You can have company stay with you, and they can have their own space. It’s off the pool, so it also can be used as a pool house.

Tell me about the outdoor spaces.
The grounds are absolutely beautiful. It’s just like a country estate. There are extremely mature trees, and now with spring coming, everything will be blooming soon. All the seasons are lovely here. Having such a large, private lot is priceless.

What do you most want the next homeowner to know?
The best thing about the property is that it’s a lovely
and peaceful place to live. You’ll discover a lot of surprises once you’re here. There are so many beautiful intricacies that you don’t notice at first. The home has not been on the market for nearly 50 years. It’s a rare opportunity to have a house
like this.
