FORGET THE ORDINARY! Allow your senses to meander between new and traditional in this sprawling Ladue home, renovated top to bottom with a main-floor master suite and guest quarters, open floor plan and two kitchens.

Greet your guests at the elegant, East facing foyer with aperitifs waiting in the living/music room with a wall of windows, adorned with plaster moldings and enlivened by the wood-burning fireplace and piano. Your dining feels like alfresco overlooking a garland of windows unveiling fabulous views of the patios and private yard - an excellent site for a future infinity pool you can build into the natural slope of the almost an acre lot.

The best surprise is revealed in the gourmet kitchen – the ultimate entertainment space, opened to the family and breakfast rooms where a true chef would appreciate the Italian FULGOR Milano gas cooktop, with extra spice cabinets, built-in bookshelves, wine cooler, the rare two dishwashers and two prep areas, two pantries - one walk-in and one with pullouts, two Lazy-Suzan cabinets, deep drawers and a massive center island with full-depth cabinets on both sides, bar stools, double oven, mother-of-pearl backsplash and exotic granite countertop. All new windows, built-in cubbies for the family and tons of natural light, enhanced by the gas fireplace with marble surround and granite seating will make your daily life a joy.

The library sings a more serene tune where you can curl up with a book facing the second wood-burning fireplace embraced by the luxurious mahogany paneling – an excellent ambiance for a home office or a den with built-in book cases. Daydreaming would be easy when you gaze through the oversized window to expand your horizon to the lavish yard.

Your relaxation is secured by the completely remodeled main-floor primary suite with a SPA-like, heated-floor primary bath and a separate dressing room. Your guests will enjoy their own main-floor sleeping quarters with renovated bath, while the kids’ kingdom bursts with energy upstairs with 2 huge bedrooms (one en-suite), walk-in closets, 2 baths with skylights and a bonus/game room with a large window and a skylight. A second-floor laundry area will provide valuable laundry lessons for the kiddos.

The recently finished lower level walks-out with stunning views to the almost acre leveled lot through the second kitchen/bar area, while the rec space feels like an in-law suite. Your kitchen here can be equally entertaining for adults with its center island cabinet, electric cooktop, dishwasher, fridge, and California shelves with built-in LED lights, as well as for a joyful crowd in a kids’ birthday party with a fantastic new patio with built-in seating areas for outdoor gatherings. The basement also offers a full bath, a screened sleeping area, a living and dining areas with a fireplace, a wine room separated by French doors and ready for your favorite shelves. A large second laundry room is great for bulky items and main washing loads.

Granite, marble, travertine, hard wood floors, walls of windows (almost all of them replaced), 3 dishwashers, 2 laundry areas, 2 kitchens, 2 new patios, most systems replaced in the last 10 years, chef’s gourmet kitchen and stunning baths – nothing was spared for your joie de vivre, whether you run around with kids, teens or just want to entertain and relax with friends and family.

Extra perks: Ladue schools (Reed Elementary), Tilles Park (2-3 minutes by car), Shaw Park (5-miute drive), shopping 5-10 minutes, the airport – 15 minutes with traffic, Washington University and St. Louis University, BJC and Children’s Hospitals, Mercy, Missouri Baptist hospital and St. Luke’s are all 10-15 minute drives. Boeing, Monsanto and Purina/Nestle – about 20-30 minutes. Major brand outlets – less than half an hour. Groceries in every direction are within 5 minutes and the walkability was recently enhanced by newer sidewalks alongside the undulating community roads.

Live in the heart of Ladue where the comfort and beauty of modern amenities co-mingle with the subdued elegance of traditional architecture in a private community, far from the bustle of the city, yet close enough to shopping, businesses and work to make your life hassle-free. The award winning school district with Reed Elementary School, Ladue Middle School and Ladue Horton Watkins High School is the cherry on the top of the cake.
