Alright, ladies and gentlemen…here we go, as promised: MEHM St. Louis County Volume I!!! I hope you’re as excited as I am to delve into Saint Louisan luxury; I expect you will find these manors vastly different from the homes we visited on our first two tours of St. Charles County.
There are so many rich, vibrant neighborhoods woven throughout the tapestry that is our local chunk of Missouri. It takes only a short drive to get from quaint, historic Old Town Saint Charles to the bustling hub that is Forest Park or the on-trend neighborhoods in Tower Grove… And these homes are sprinkled throughout our towns, just within our grasp, waiting for us to notice them and take a peek inside. Let’s! Shall we?
3 MOST EXPENSIVE HOMES ON THE MARKET – ST. LOUIS COUNTY – VOLUME I
1. 9847 Litzsinger Road, Ladue MO 63124 – $6,650,000
Yeowza!!!! Can we just take this in for a moment..??? Look at the stonework on this home….the steep gables of the roof, the drive-through archway, the balconies and hedges…I mean this home is perfection. This is the exact way I want my future multi-million dollar home to look on the outside. As a matter of fact…I think every home I’ve ever made on The Sims looked this way (‘rosebud’ money cheat code anyone?? No?? Oh..well, playing the right way is fun too, I guess..)..
I really love this home’s classic feel, from the chandeliers to the intricate woodwork and clean lines.. The darker paint on the ceilings really creates interest and makes the chandeliers pop! The curved staircase is beautiful, but I think the real stunner here is the main floor billiard and bar room. Talk about an entertainment space!!! No need to be sent down to the dungeon if you’d like to hustle someone in a quick game of pool..!
No MEHM tour would be complete without a view of the chef’s space!! This kitchen does NOT disappoint…it’s just dripping with country charm. I would love to know what the view is like through those windows over that GORGEOUS apron sink..!!
I’m not a very good card player, nor am I a wine connoisseur…but this room certainly gives me the itch to try becoming both!! It just needs a flat screen mounted on the wall with a Cardinals game on, and you bet I’m right there, hibernating through the end of October.
In my professional opinion, a multi-million dollar home is only worthy of luxury status if it has an awesome feature like this one. A lovely movie theater room with stadium seating and custom acoustic-enhancing panels… I mean what could be cooler than this??? Hmm…
Oh, right. THIS is cooler. Okay, so maybe I knew that this house ALSO happens to have an outdoor kitchen and large, covered patio right next to a magnificent inground pool… Seriously. This is a wow factor. What a way to entertain your guests- serving frozen margaritas to whoever is at the bar, while chatting with people lounging in the shade and watching kids splashing in the pool. I can’t imagine a better way to spend your summer, can you?
Just look at the back view of this home! My goodness. It’s Mod-Goth in all the best ways and so visually appealing. I would say our first stop on the MEHM – St. Louis Volume I tour was a success, wouldn’t you? As always, I encourage you to go check out the other pictures of these homes…they are so incredibly worth it!!
**If you’re looking for your first home, your next home, or your dream home, you can search by many parameters on our website: Turn2Move.com! We would be happy to help you find your very own outdoor kitchen and inground pool!
2. 2701 South Lindbergh, Huntleigh MO 63131 – $5,499,000
I don’t want to build this one up too terribly much…but I have never wanted to show off pictures of one of these houses as much as I want to show off the pictures of this one. This is hands down my favorite of all the homes we have toured in the MEHM series so far… To give you an idea, usually I save about 10-12 pictures of a home, and I’ll use maybe 6, 8 of them. This home, I was being PICKY and saved/used 19.
So yeah. I would DEFINITELY go look at all of the pictures on this one when you’re done here. Wowza. Think Mystery Mansion…Clue…And Then There Were None… Gorgeous, majestic, creepy-chic.. Mostly gorgeous, though. UGH! I. can’t. wait. Seriously! I think you’ll love this one too. Are you ready??
First stop, entry foyer. Not bad, right? Maybe you’re overwhelmed by the not-quite-50’s-diner flooring…but take a look down that corridor, will you?? Hallway for days… So this first room may be leaving you feeling a little indifferent so far, but please, just wait…
I’m sure I’ve said it before, but a good, hearty, solid wood paneled office is the key to my heart. Love everything, down to the furniture. Is that desk made out of marble? Who knows, but it sure is marbleous……………….
Get it? Marbleous…like marvelous? HA! Okay, moving right along…let us please take a look at that doorway…not just a doorway…a SECRET DOORWAY. Yep. Close that bad boy up and it matches the bookcase to the right. What kid doesn’t have dreams of owning secret rooms and hiding places that only you know about, right?? Well there you go.
Are you kind of starting to get the Clue/Mystery Mansion vibe here? I mean, these rooms are absolutely stunning. But I feel like there’s a pretty good chance that Colonel Mustard did it with the wrench in that conservatory room up to the left. You with me?
Alright, so now I KNOW I’ve got you on the same page as me with this one. HOW MAJESTIC IS THIS BATHROOM. Look at that beautiful, dark, romantic wallpaper and the sultry dimmed lighting.. Wow. Now, you certainly can’t call this room updated, but it’s like a historical painting- I marvel at the sight of it.
Now THAT, my friends, is a kitchen. Custom fridge, gourmet stove, splendid counters and floors, and not to mention those amazing cabinets… Just lovely. You may be thinking, It’s pretty, but it’s just a little too small for a multi-million dollar home... Well.
How about this sun soaked little kitchen hallway to add on to your spacial desires?? How crazy cool is that?
Before I move to the basement level, I just need to take a breath. This is the most well done, lovely basement that I have ever seen. You won’t find boring-old drywall, pod lights, and builder’s grade carpet in this basement. It is a masterpiece, the coup de grâce. Think, foggy London evening in a damp old cellar bar with a warm lager in your hand, gothic glam oozing out at you from every direction. Okay. I’m ready.
Alright…what did you think???? Be honest, did I talk it up too much? Or were you right there with me?? Wow. I love a traditionally finished basement as much as the next gal, but this space astounded me. Like, I’m literally at a loss for words for how much I am in love with this basement. There were so many more pictures that I had to leave out, including their movie theater area, and more…go look at the rest of the pictures when you get a moment. Just lovely.
Oh, you thought I was done after the basement? Nope. But look at this pool and outdoor fireplace! I want to hang out here, right now. Seriously…do you think the owner wants house guests?? *sigh* I guess we’ll move on to the last one…
3. 2660 South Warson Rd, St Louis MO 63124 – $5,190,000
This view of the grounds is breathtaking…it makes me wonder why the other homes on our tour did not take advantage of the drone photography for a shot like this…wow! These grounds are spectacular. Note the perfect lines in the lawn, the lush trees and hedges, the soccer field… Yep! Soccer field! Upper right. Awesome, isn’t it??
I must admit, I find the inside of this one a tad boring after that last home. But the grounds on this one put the others to shame. The inground pool is shrouded by trees, the house itself is stately and established, and the paths, walkways and courtyards are simply beautiful.
One word: appliances. MY GOOD GRAVY, that fridge and stove are fantastic. The light in the room is divine, and I can just imagine a boatload of kids pulled up to that island waiting to be served a 12 course breakfast. Or is it called brunch at a home like this, regardless of the time…? Hmm..
This house is much more compartmentalized than most of the homes on our tours have been. It’s beautiful, cozy and intimate, there’s nothing wrong with compartmentalized. However, for me…if I have one of these manors, I want it open and airy, where I can have a million guests and have a view of every one of them having a good time wherever I stand. Totally fair, right?
Here is a view for you…outdoor living room (behind the lens is a fireplace and mounted flatscreen…because why not…) overlooking the gorgeous hideaway pool and treehouse. I’m in love. I could read a mean book on that couch while listening to the kids go nuts with joy in the background..
Last but certainly not least, a regulation international singles-sized Squash Court, with a balcony for your viewing pleasure. There you have them, ladies and germs. The first three homes in our series of MEHM – St. Louis County. I truly hope you enjoyed them as much as I did.
