from the homeowners »
From exciting entertainment to world-class dining, living in a city undoubtedly has its perks, but even the most adamant urbanite can became restless for something quieter. For many, the solution is weekend getaways, but the owners of this Ladue estate created their own private retreat—right in the central corridor! Located on 2 acres within the Saint Louis Country Club grounds, the luxurious home offers peace and tranquility with easy access to city life.

What initially attracted you to the home?
We loved the location. The home is on a hill, and the neighborhood is safe and beautiful. You get the convenience of being in a subdivision that is only minutes from highways, and there are great schools in the area. The house is very centrally located, but you don’t feel like you’re living in the middle of the city. It’s so quiet, we felt like we were in the country.

Did you make any changes?
The short answer is we’ve done a lot. Since purchasing the house, we’ve updated or completely renovated every room from top to bottom, including outside areas. Some of the highlights include updating the kitchen appliances, adding the wine cellar and screening room, and resurfacing the back patio.

What do you think is the standout feature of the property?
There are so many great amenities, but the back patio and saltwater pool definitely stand out. They’re perfect for entertaining or just enjoying the outdoors in the privacy of your own home.

Did you entertain often?
Yes. It’s the perfect family house and entertaining space. We had the best time living here and hosting our friends and family during the holidays. The outdoor space is perfect for pool parties and barbecues, and the fire pit is great to gather around at night.

Tell me about the other features.
The house has everything you could want or need. I cook a lot, so the kitchen is set up perfectly for preparing a meal for two or hosting a large group. There is a great workout room and spa for taking care of yourself. With a theater, wine cellar and billiards room, just staying in for the night is great. But if you want to go out, you’re only 15 minutes from the CWE or Chesterfield and even closer to Clayton and Frontenac. Really, what more could you ask for?
