A brick-paved path leads you to this home in the Central West End that at one time rivaled Gatsby’s with its reputation as the apex of society gatherings. This rare Golden Era mansion shares a storied past worthy of the gossip. Leona Byrd gave her shocking rendition of the 1905 No. 1 song, “Give My Regards to Broadway,” while puffing on a cigarette inside these halls, causing a reprint of the social registry! With a true Renaissance man as its previous owner, the home has been updated and restored in superior fashion. Meander through the center hall, peeking in at the gentlemen’s parlor or formal dining room, featuring a caterer’s alcove that opens up to the side veranda. Wander back to the marvelously designed kitchen, showcasing original St. Charles cabinets and state-of-the-art appliances. Incredible updates and exquisite attention to detail is found throughout the expansive manse, from the master suite to the carriage house. Prepare yourself for a “helluva” good time at No. 37.

This 6-bedroom, 4 full-bathroom and 1 half-bathroom home in the Central West End is listed for $1.55 million.
