Residing in Ladue, this modern architectural masterpiece offers you your own private oasis. Renowned architect Phillip Durham devised the H-shaped abode to privatize this paradise, offering peace of mind from the moment you step inside to when you lay down to sleep in the main-level master suite. Imagine working as a team in the first-floor office space built for two , or opening your home for a holiday bash. Guests can easily interact in the home’s open floor plan, which blends the living room, dining area and kitchen into one expansive area. Fill the space with your favorite tunes by utilizing the indoor and outdoor wired sound system, encouraging people to step out onto the concrete patio, explore their surrounds and admire the home’s impressive design. A natural exterior of Wisconsin limestone and Ipe boards proves just as appealing as the hickory plank floors and marble found inside. Boasting custom cabinetry and shelving, plus an abundance of seating areas, this remarkable residence is yours for the taking.

This 4-bedroom, 5 full-bathroom and 1 half-bathroom home in Ladue is listed for $2.5 million.
