What\u2019s better than one architecturally significant home? One architecturally significant home quite literally inside a second house, of course! That\u2019s exactly what you\u2019ll find at one-of-a-kind 110 Dielman Road in Ladue, the 2017 Ladue News Show House.

Originally built in the 1930s, 110 Dielman Road started out as a charming stone cottage featuring a pattern of triangles and horizontal lines in light gray. Decades later, a massive contemporary addition was added, but unlike modern additions built onto the back of a home, this one engulfed the property, leaving the cottage and its stonework as the nucleus for the extensive estate.

Samantha Goldenhersh grew up in the home from 1987 to 1998, when the majority of the major renovations took place. Her mother and father, Jennifer and Mark Goldenhersh, bought it from Mark\u2019s childhood friends\u2019 parents, the Broida family. They made substantial improvements to the home, including adding the great room, movie theater, additional bathrooms and upstairs loft. Her father even had a tennis court built on the property, although it was later removed by a subsequent owner.

Today, 110 Dielman Road features four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a half-bathroom throughout its 5,175-square-foot interior. The new exterior features oversize windows framing the view of 2-plus acres of property. Inside, the original stonework abounds, as well as other show-stopping design details like multiple vaulted wood-beam ceilings and a cobbled stone-and-marble floor.

Ted Wight of Dielmann Sotheby\u2019s International Realty, the Realtor on the $1.549 million residence, says the home is a great fit for the Show House because of its variety of aesthetic and design elements. \u201cThere\u2019s a wide assortment of traditional and nontraditional rooms [that] will appeal to all people\u2019s tastes \u2013 and it gives designers the ability to be contemporary or traditional,\u201d he says, adding that it features \u201ca lot to look at\u201d and \u201call sorts of exciting design choices to experience\u201d for visitors. \u201cIt\u2019s not just a standard center-hall colonial home.\u201d

Rooms featured in the 2017 Show House involve both the main floor and the stately lower level. Downstairs, the abode features a variety of modern luxuries, including a family room, wet bar, sauna, wine cellar and bedroom suite. \u201cIt has contemporary flair but [a] wonderful traditional feel to it,\u201d Wight says of the estate.

Outside, 110 Dielman Road features an attached two-car garage, as well as a detached one-car garage with workspace. A large patio nestles into the manicured yet organic-feeling landscaping, but in case that isn\u2019t enough outdoor entertaining space, the home also features an enclosed, open-air courtyard at its center off the great room. This unique space features ample stonework and endless design possibilities.

When asked what space he\u2019s most excited to see transformed, Wight says: \u201cMy favorite room is the great room, with the timbered ceilings, skylights and windows that look out onto the courtyard and backyard \u2013 it\u2019s a very dramatic, large space.\u201d He also mentions the adjoining open-air courtyard, saying, \u201cIt\u2019s very unique, and I\u2019m sure it\u2019s going to be exciting.\u201d

Anne Smith and Liz McGovern of June Roesslein Interiors turned a window-filled room into a green and lush guest suite. Two taupe hues color the walls (North Hampton Beige and Ashley Grey, both by Benjamin Moore) and are paired with airy upholstery throughout. \u201cArchitecturally, the room is stunning,\u201d Smith says.

Changes to the original design included selecting a new chandelier and sham fabric. \u201cThe fabric reselection required revisiting the finish selected on the headboard \u2013 a domino effect,\u201d Smith explains.

\u201cOur favorite portion of the room has to be the \u2018living wall,\u2019 with the two chairs strategically placed next to a round wrapped rattan table,\u201d Smith says. \u201cThe tablescape is reflective of a romantic celebration with champagne flutes and a strawberry-chocolate cake. We\u2019re excited to share the entire space with our guests.\u201d

The natural details don\u2019t stop with the plants. From woven baskets to the knotted table base, elements of the outdoors are seen throughout. The room features few pieces of wall art, instead focusing on framing the lovely view through the oversize picture window. The tranquility of the bedroom extends to the adjoining bathroom. Dark woven baskets add a touch of nature and extra storage, and a fur-covered vanity stool in a light hue brings a bit of glam without going overboard.

While the temperature keeps changing in St. Louis, it\u2019s entirely autumn at the Show House thanks to Jim Graeler and daughter Andria Graeler of Chesterfield Valley Nursery. The exterior of the home is engulfed in fall hues like orange and yellow.

\u201cI think our favorite part of the landscape was the walkway up to the front door,\u201d Andria Graeler says of the manicured entryway, flanked with colorful mums and greenery. \u201cBetween all the fall color and the planter bowls, it was just a really nice, lush example of how we create a space.\u201d

The Chesterfield Valley Nursery team ran into some issues with size, she explains, noting a few plants that were too tall for their original intended locations. Minor adjustments fixed these issues to create a warm and welcoming yard.

The outdoor spaces at the house include not just the front entryway but also a side yard complete with an outdoor living room. \u201cI was most excited about this area \u2026 [It] has a lot of our large planter pots, and it also had a really nice box Japanese maple to create a more natural feel to that outdoor space,\u201d Andria Graeler says.

From the tiled floor with a textured rug to the wood ceiling with a tumbleweed light fixture, interesting details can be found in every inch of the hearth room. Vicki Dreste of Victoria Dreste Designs tackled the unique space.

\u201cI\u2019m very happy with the way the room turned out,\u201d Dreste says. \u201cOne of my favorite things about the room is the color palette. I love the combination of navy blue and a caramel color. I think those two colors blend and work really well in the space with the tile in the dark wood ceiling.\u201d

Size and timing did cause a few changes to her original design, Dreste explains; a rug was not available when she needed it, and a side table appeared too large once in the space. \u201cNeither of these changes affected the overall design of the room,\u201d she says.

Another challenge? The light fixture is made of an actual tumbleweed, which gives it both visual interest and serious transportation problems. Dreste explains it cannot be put in a box or set down, but instead must always remain suspended.

Tori Webbe-Hunt of Tori Design says she tried to play up the existing kitchen and butler\u2019s pantry with accessories, flowers, furniture and artwork. The result? Warm and inviting with modern touches.

\u201cThe flowers and the wood accessories would have to be one of my favorites,\u201d she says of her additions to the rooms. \u201cIt just goes to show that bringing current accessories, rugs and furniture into a dated room can bring it back to a current look. It also goes to show that hiring a design professional can help you make your dream home a reality.\u201d

Mimicking the wood cabinetry, wood accents in a similar tone can be seen in added cutting boards, centerpieces and a tabletop cookbook holder. At the end of the room, a cozy seating area for two creates the perfect place for breakfast.

\u201cI didn\u2019t really have any problems, except I had to change my table to a smaller round and only two dining chairs in the breakfast room,\u201d Webbe-Hunt says of her few design challenges. What the seating area loses in size, it makes up for in comfort, with slipcovered chairs in a fun pattern complete with pillows.

The Show House great room features ample standout architectural details, from the tiled flooring to the window-filled walls to the beamed ceiling. A space this expansive and intricate requires bold design for balance. Annie Genovese, Maggie Genovese and John O\u2019Hara from Forsyth accepted the challenge.

The finished room features Forsyth\u2019s signature vintage furniture upholstered in high-quality hides paired with colorful art and layered textiles. A four-person game table with vintage chairs sits atop layered rugs. Nearby, the seating area includes two love seats, two armchairs and a lounge surrounding a red-and-zebra rug and petite coffee table.

\u201cMy favorite part of the room are the twin Milo Baughman love seats opposite each other,\u201d Annie Genovese says. \u201cThe golden color of cowhide is warm and inviting, and they are the most comfortable things in the history of furniture.\u201d

The finished room differs significantly from the original design, but unlike most changes that are caused by missing items or too-small spaces, this was altered due to an abundance of room. \u201cOur original plan did not include the dining table and our set of 10 midcentury Swedish steel chairs,\u201d Annie Genovese says, noting how happy the team was when they realized there was space for it all. \u201cThat room is meant for entertaining, and that includes throwing raucous dinner parties!\u201d

Where some saw a room with design-limiting built-ins, Gigi Lombrano of Gigi Lombrano Interiors saw possibility. Her dining room is filled with artwork from Atrium Gallery and anchored with gray furniture. A round dining table on an architectural base brings functionality to the room. To soften the space, Lombrano explains the paint color, created by Paint Imagery, has a soft metallic finish with just a touch of shimmer, known as \u201cgreige\u201d for gray and beige.

The art wall is Lombrano\u2019s favorite part of the dining room. \u201cI loved selecting all of the pieces of art for the niches,\u201d she says. \u201cI have more than 14 artists represented in my space. I think there\u2019s something for everyone \u2026 I love that some of the pieces are small and can be used in bookcases or other small spaces. I\u2019ve left some of them propped to suggest easily swapping out pieces as the mood strikes. You don\u2019t have to hang it and leave it forever \u2013 move things around!\u201d

Outside of the built-in artwork area, Lombrano also added some mismatched seating along the wall, colorful table sculptures, a blue rug and window treatments in an ombre of blues.

Lombrano\u2019s biggest consideration was using restraint, she says, noting the importance of properly editing a room. \u201cWhat restraint brings is an elegance and comfort that clutter doesn\u2019t allow,\u201d she says. \u201cYou need breathing space, not only for the art but for standing-around room for guests.\u201d

CJ Knapp of Yours by Design turned the spacious loft into a cozy, family-friendly area. The room features color-blocked walls in blue and white, natural wood tones and layered, traditional fabrics.

Multiple seating areas create space for a plethora of activities. \u201cYou could read or work a crossword puzzle in the big comfy chairs, stretch out and relax on the sofa, play a game of cards sitting on the polar bear bronzes, work on a school project at the table or play a game,\u201d she says. (And yes, you read that right: The fluffy chairs are actually multiuse bronze polar bears.) \u201cIt\u2019s a great family space as well as a party place.\u201d

Knapp had to make a few changes from her original design. For example, the polka-dot fabric she planned on using for the drapes wasn\u2019t available on time, so she found a stripe to replace it.

\u201cI fell in love with the stripe for the tent flaps, and then I found the blue linen print to put with it,\u201d she says. \u201cRooms are like a puzzle. I always know what I want in them, but sometimes, quantity or placement will change from the initial concept.\u201d It\u2019s this drape-covered alcove furnished with furry beanbags that Knapp notes as her favorite part of the room.

In addition to this space, Knapp decorated the adjoining bathroom with the family in mind, giving it a pirate theme complete with sword curtain rods and a treasure map across the ceiling.

The expansive master suite was decorated by designers Teddy Karl, Melissa Hummel and Liz Basler of The Great Cover-Up. The team turned the room into a luxe, traditional escape filled with cozy upholstery.

A few small changes were made to the room from the original plan, Karl says: \u201cThe nightstands I originally intended were not in stock and would not have arrived in time. Same with the wall sconces. Other than that, just a few tweaks.\u201d The room\u2019s narrow entryway complicated getting the chandelier box inside, he explains, but problems with the space were fairly small.

The bed and its surrounding alcove are Karl\u2019s favorite part of the room. \u201cI love the way it turned out,\u201d he says. \u201c[It] exceeded our expectations. I like the way the color is scattered throughout the room, with a neutral base.\u201d

The statement wall includes blue-and-white china above the upholstered bed and coordinating nightstand vignettes. At the foot of the bed, a cream love seat features two plush pillows and sits in front of a Blue Willow-patterned coffee table. That color palette extends into the adjoining master bathroom.

\u201cI\u2019m also pleased with the more modern paintings,\u201d Karl says. \u201cNormally, I\u2019m very traditional in my taste in art, and this was a very nice surprise.\u201d

The guest bedroom, designed by David Deatherage of David Deatherage Design, changed significantly from its first-draft plan. \u201cI originally was looking at a vintage bed frame that I would have had lacquered, but I instead found an in-stock upholstered bed that works quite nicely in the room,\u201d Deatherage says. \u201cA Louise Grey quilt I liked for the room didn\u2019t come in queen size, so I opted for a floral duvet from Kate Spade instead.\u201d

Behind the bed and throughout the room, sheer curtains add privacy while still flooding the guest bedroom with light. Flanking the bed are matching vintage sea-foam chests with Greek key detailing. \u201cWith today\u2019s beds often having higher mattresses, a pair of chests worked nicely as nightstands and add a lot of storage to the room,\u201d says Deatherage.

The Kate Spade duvet features not only the main hues of the room \u2013 white and sea-foam \u2013 but also hints of hot pink. Deatherage continued this color palette by adding complementary throw pillows and flowers.

Deatherage says he is excited for people to see the space, which features ample elegance without feeling austere. \u201cIt\u2019s a balancing act to dial in the right amount of formal attributes while still making it inviting,\u201d he says.

Much of the Show House is decorated in neutrals and regal blues, but the lower-level family room is the exception. Outfitted in burnt orange, the space by designers Linda Williams and Ruth Nowlin from Dau Furniture is colorful and retro. Midcentury details can be spotted throughout in accents like blown-glass table decorations, brass accents and arched light fixtures.

\u201cWe turned a lower-level blank space into one that\u2019s interesting as well as functional for a variety of activities,\u201d Williams says.

Both designers note the center of the room as their favorite part. \u201cThe bold color just infuses life into a remote, lower-level living space,\u201d Nowlin says. A white sectional sofa and white coffee table sit atop the colorful rug and balance out its bright hue.

Lower-level rooms come with a variety of challenges, such as getting large-scale furniture down tight staircases. The Dau Furniture team was, however, able to get it all into the space. Another hang-up? Eyesore doors. \u201cWe used a drapery treatment to hide a set of unsightly doors,\u201d Williams says. \u201cDraperies can also be a way to bring interest into a room that lacks architectural details.\u201d

Smaller spaces don\u2019t necessarily make for easier design projects. Designer Amy Herman of brooksBerry Kitchens and Baths took the once-dated powder room and upgraded it with new architectural elements and colors. A blue cabinet sits below a statement sink and dark counter, and brackets were added on the side to allow for a longer countertop. The original terra-cotta tile and light-toned door pair nicely with these cool additions, as well as with the warm-colored circular mirror now placed above the vanity.

Herman notes the wallpaper as her favorite addition. \u201cIt has a soft-looking texture with a metallic sheen in colors that complement the space,\u201d she says. Some of it was damaged during the installation of the ceiling woodwork, but she says it was able to be repaired.

\u201cThe light pendant I used had to draw power from one of the existing can lights,\u201d Herman says. \u201cThe wood ceiling grid was added to camouflage the connection of the new ceiling pendant while adding visual interest to the space.\u201d A snug fit, it now looks as though it\u2019s always been part of the house.

Over many decades, SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children\u2019s Hospital has worked consistently to maintain its mission of revealing the healing process of God through exceptional health care services. Since 1956, the hospital\u2019s world-class physicians have provided exceptional medical care to thousands of infants and children each year \u2013 whether they\u2019re able to pay or not.

One aspect of the Cardinal Glennon community, the Glennon Guild, is committed to helping Cardinal Glennon through raising funds, volunteering in the hospital and advancing the welfare of the medical center and its patients. The guild comprises more than 150 women who donate their time and talents for the betterment of Cardinal Glennon.

As the beneficiary of this year\u2019s Ladue News Show House, the Glennon Guild will be able to assist with the purchase of a cortical stimulator.

Guild member Gretchen Schulte says that the cortical stimulator will be used during surgery to help stop epileptic seizures. \u201cIt\u2019s an incredibly expensive piece of equipment, but we will be able to fund it with the Show House\u2019s help,\u201d she says.

While many other hospital guilds run the building\u2019s gift shop, that isn\u2019t the case with the Glennon Guild. The guild\u2019s members used to run the gift shop, but no longer do so after realizing that it took time away from their efforts to directly serve patients, which many guild members do. Instead, the guild gets its funding through other avenues, like the Show House, the Glennon Card and the annual fashion show. \u201cWe\u2019re always working to help children with disabilities,\u201d Schulte says. \u201cWe do it through God\u2019s help and all the people who are affiliated with the hospital.\u201d The fashion show celebrated its 38th year this past April and raised thousands of dollars for inpatient and outpatient cancer services in the Costas center of the hospital. Additionally, the Glennon Guild is supported by generous donors, which is critical since the guild isn\u2019t affiliated with a university or other hospital.

In past years, proceeds from the Show House have helped fund a dialysis reverse osmosis machine, along with aiding in the redesign of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Diagnostic Imaging Center and Bob Costas Cancer Center.

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children\u2019s Hospital provides superior medical care to more than 200,000 infants and children each year in Missouri and Illinois, throughout the country and in many other countries, whether patients can afford to pay for medical care or not. One year, Cardinal Glennon was able to provide more than $3 million in free medical care.

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children\u2019s Hospital employs more than 200 of the best pediatric experts in St. Louis practicing across 60 specialties.

This year\u2019s Ladue News Show House provides a unique opportunity to step back in time and discover how Ladue, where 110 Dielman Road is located, evolved over time \u2013 and continues to evolve today.

Andy Dielmann of Dielmann Sotheby\u2019s International Realty, presenting sponsor of this year\u2019s Show House, speaks on his family connection to the property\u2019s surrounding area. \u201cDielman Road was named after my great-great-grandfather,\u201d he says. \u201cWhen my family came over from Germany in the 1800s, they built the original Dielmann farm where the Briarcliff subdivision now stands. In high school, my older sister and some friends of hers were digging in their garden inside the Briarcliff neighborhood. They found an old horseshoe and thought it had to belong to our family\u2019s farm.\u201d

The street was then named for the family (although no one can explain the lack of the second n at the end of the name). When asked how his great-great-grandfather would react to seeing the Show House happening in this transformed neighborhood, Dielmann responds, \u201cHe\u2019d likely be shocked.\u201d The Dielmanns, however, aren\u2019t the only ones who remember what the land formerly looked like.

Ted Wight, the listing agent for the residence, grew up in the neighborhood, often exploring the area surrounding Dielman Road with friends. \u201cI lived in Briarcliff, which is right next door,\u201d he shares. \u201cWe used to wander and cut through yards. You\u2019re right in the middle of all these wonderful family neighborhoods with trails. I love the location because it\u2019s convenient for people from all over St. Louis to visit.\u201d

The home was originally built by a stonemason outside of the city. As the greater St. Louis area built up and expanded toward the property, the family maintained privacy with a forest enclosure. \u201cSurrounded by greenery, it\u2019s very private and creates a wonderful space where kids can play and build forts, with a large yard and creek,\u201d Wight says. \u201cThe one thing that\u2019s important for a Show House home is to have enough rooms to offer a true variety \u2013 not just your standards. There are several options in this home. The center of the home is an original 1930s stone cottage, with a beautiful patchwork of different [natural materials] repeated throughout.\u201d

A perfect canvas for the Show House designers to test new styles, the property branches out from its original dwelling with effortless flow. The house wouldn\u2019t force designers to go in one direction or another, Wight reflects, adding, \u201cIt has an organic feeling to it, which creates interesting architectural elements.\u201d One can\u2019t help admiring the fine materials used throughout, such as the granite and limestone, leaded glass windows and great room, with beamed ceiling. The abode\u2019s first addition, built by a Croatian stonemason, matches the original stonework for a seamless transition.

\u201cThe Show House always gives inspiration,\u201d Wight says. \u201cYou see current decorating trends and how they might work in your own house. You experience a multitude of styles, which appeal to people in different ways. This home is more than 5,000 square feet. Explore your favorite rooms and the gardens. It\u2019s the kind of home where you can linger.\u201d

The Show House typically evolves over a three-month process, creating a real estate masterpiece \u2013 and it\u2019s all done in support of the community. \u201cWe\u2019re honored to have been chosen for this signature event, which supports SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children\u2019s Hospital,\u201d Dielmann says. \u201cWe\u2019re humbled to be able to give back.\u201d

Michael Charles Ahrens married Patricia (Trish) Bannon Duran on April 22 in a ceremony at Ladue Chapel. A reception followed at Forest Park Visitor\u2019s Center in the Trolley Room, where guests enjoyed dinner and dancing.

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur and Kathleen Ahrens of St. Louis. Brian Lihs, a friend from college and former roommate, served as best man. Groomsmen included Eric Barber, Douglas Chod and Benjamin Duran. The ring bearer was Thomas Duran. Michael is a financial analyst for Exxon-Mobil.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. Troy Duran and Ms. Stephanie Duran. Amber Schaefer, a childhood friend, served as maid of honor. Bridesmaids included Claire Tichenor, Elle Kekec and Madeline Bishop. Trish is a fifth grade math teacher for the Lumberton, Texas, school district.

On the morning of their nuptials, rain greeted the couple, but luckily stopped by the time the wedding party left for pictures. The ceremony began just as sun streamed through the church windows. Fortuitously, Michael and Trish recessed to the planned music of \u201cHere Comes the Sun\u201d by the Beatles. The couple honeymooned in Great Exuma of the Bahamas, with a chance to swim with the pigs. They now reside in Beaumont, Texas.
