As you roll along the circular drive of this Ladue home, your mouth might drop open at the architectural significance of this estate, which rests on two park-like acres of country club grounds. The incredible exterior is matched only by the exceptional interior – the mark of a beautiful renovation that was completed in recent years. Take a walk into the entry foyer, which impresses with three sets of French doors that lead to the terrace and pool. The living room follows, with unbelievable paneling, a fireplace and access to the sunroom. The dining room also offers a fireplace and exits to the terrace. In the updated kitchen, you’ll discover state-of-the-art appliances by Sub-Zero and Dacor, while a charming carriage house resides above the four-car garage. Downstairs, an antique bar invites you to come and linger in the oversized game room. Upstairs, the master suite offers refuge, with an updated bath, a dressing area and a fireplace.

This 6-bedroom, 5 full-bathroom and 3 half-bathroom home in Ladue is listed for $3.25 million.
