By RetroRuth

This week we have a VERY spacious home in St. Louis, MO.  This home is for sale through Gladys Manion Real Estate for $1,265,000 (!), it was built in 1952, is about 4,000 square feet with four bedrooms and three full and two half bathrooms.


From the realtor’s website:

One of St. Louis’ treasures by renowned architect Harris Armstrong, this property was designed totally around the idea of being a passive solar home. The expansive 49′ great room provides the perfect setting for any gathering with its floor to ceiling glass walls providing serene views bringing the outdoors in. Multiple seating areas are all brought together by the impressive limestone fireplace set centerstage. The divided flr plan includes 4 bedrms (3 with flr to ceiling windows); The master suite and 2 bedrms with a Jack & Jill bath at one end, and a 4th bedroom suite on the other, adjoining the kitchen perfect for nanny or in-law quarters. The efficient L-shaped kitchen boasts stainless counters, 2 stainless sinks, white Geneva cabinets and tile flr. The lower level sports a rec room with stone fireplace, wet bar and terazzo floors with built in shuffle board, powder room and walks out to an area perfect for pool. Another feature, 3-car garage plus carport for additional parking.

      I’m really afraid there aren’t better pictures because the buyers in this area only want to tear down. It’s being poorly represented. What a beauty.
