A grand Georgian manse situated on nearly two picturesque acres in Ladue has been renovated by several highly regarded design contractors, including Mitchell Wall Architects, The Amherst Corp., The Screening Room and brooksBerry & Associates, which placed second in LN’s 2009 Design Awards for this property’s master bath.

    Along with a master suite that includes a private third-floor sitting room, the home’s divided-bedroom floor plan also offers in-law quarters and nanny/maid’s quarters. Well-appointed fireplaces are located in the master bedroom, a second bedroom, living room and in the open hearth room with cathedral, beamed ceilings and numerous French doors. The eat-in kitchen has a butler’s pantry, custom cabinets and center island. A Wine Guardian cooling unit maintains an ideal climate for fermented collections in the wine room, which adjoins the dining room. Other special areas include a living room, family room, library, game room and top-of-the-line media room.
