Residing in Lafayette Square, this unique gem was constructed out of the historic Missouri Carriage Co. Rebuilt in 2012, the brick home reveals a beautiful layout, balancing luxury with urbanity. Wake up in your own private wing. The master suite offers a separate sitting area, plus access to the backyard, providing an intimate sanctuary for the heads of the household. A high industrial ceiling marks the main areas, complete with a formal living space, which opens up to a shotgun-style kitchen that features stainless steel appliances and a butler’s pantry. Take a seat in the light-filled dining area or enjoy time with the family in the rec room. Upstairs, paned windows reveal the city skyline as a captivating backdrop to your daily life. A second master suite stands next to two generous bedrooms and a space you can use as an office or gathering area. A rooftop patio, overlooking the fenced-in yard, allows for outdoor entertaining and intimate views of the beloved Arch.

This 4-bedroom, 3 full-bathroom and 1 half-bathroom home in St. Louis is listed for $819,900.
