The Ryan Tradition has a rich history as a leading team in the luxury real estate market. Today, it has come to stand for more than million-dollar home sales. The name represents unmatched knowledge of the St. Louis area market and unparalleled service.
“The Ryan Tradition evolved when I joined Anne Ryan in 1991,” says John Ryan. “Anne had been a market leader for 26 years; I brought 13 years of experience in other real estate disciplines. Since then, our total sales have exceeded $980 million. Each person has special roles, which, when combined with team collaboration, best serves our clients. We have a cohesive, entrepreneurial and innovative environment.”
The Ryan Tradition is well-known for showcasing spectacular homes, like 26 Upper Ladue, which boasts 5 bedrooms, each with its own private bath, plus another full bathroom and 2 half-bathrooms. “This home is essentially 8 years old and resides on a private 3.56-acre lot in one of Ladue’s most prestigious neighborhoods,” Ryan says.
Families will love the custom kitchen, which boasts two islands and access to the hearth room. The main-level study provides a wonderful space to work from home, while the solarium proves a pleasant place to savor some iced tea. The finished lower level features a family room, game and exercise rooms, and a media room. The heated pool easily demands attention.
“The fine craftsmanship of this special residence blends the architectural integrity of the original home with features of the new, custom home,” Ryan notes. “It offers geothermal heating and cooling, two generators and a whole-house Lutron lighting and sound system, with intercoms.”
From the 18-foot beamed cathedral ceiling in the living room, which features a Juliet balcony, to French doors that lead out to the limestone terrace, the architecture is outstanding. The home has the amenities to match, including heated limestone flooring in the kitchen and breakfast room, double-layer granite countertops and marble baths. The master suite offers its own entrance, opening up to reveal a double-coffered ceiling, a study with recessed paneling, a custom dressing room and a master bath, with heated marble flooring.
“We have all the latest technology – and the support of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury,” Ryan says, which boosts the team’s impressive capabilities. “Our significant presence in the market and continual interaction with buyers, sellers and other agents are our strongest tools.”
