Yesterday I represented the Buyers of this lovely home on popular Heather Hill Lane. A couple of years ago I represented the Buyers and Sellers of the home next door- 33-A Heather Hill Lane.
This was just reported by the Modern STL Group:
"Anyone driving past the concrete saucer at 212 South Grand Avenue over the past few months has been witness to its rapid transformation from a run-down Del Taco into a sleek and stylish space-aged dream.
Just one year ago the former Phillips 66 gas station, built in 1967 as part of Council Plaza and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was slated for demolition to make way for a standard strip mall. Saved through the efforts of dedicated citizens region-wide and by preservation non-profits such as ModernSTL, Landmarks Association of St. Louis, Missouri Preservation and even the National Trust, it has now been restored to its original elegance and will soon house Midtown’s first Starbucks and Chipotle.
Today ModernSTL is thrilled to report, on good authority, that the Starbucks branch is slated to open this Friday, September 28th! So keep your eyes peeled – while such openings are prone to postponement, the Saint Louis community shouldn’t have long to wait before it can quench its thirst beneath the welcoming concrete disc which has made this building a local landmark for the past forty-five years."
Hurry and get your tickets to the 2nd Ladue News Decorator's Showcase. Decorators have transformed this Bernoudy masterpiece into a stunning home! I was out there yesterday and loved what is being done. This is a must see! The Trova Project has lent several pieces to the designers that will be punctuating the home. It is an education to see his works beyond the Falling Man series.

Just finished and to be displayed in our farm house at Rockford Farms, Pike County Missouri. Artist and friend, Charlie Houska, was commissioned to create this masterpiece.
Yesterday I went through this stunning house in Ladue designed by Harris Armstrong. I just loved it. A true masterpiece. It sits on 3 acres in Ladue, so I am fearful that someone may want the lot.
"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 terrazzo floors with built in shuffle board, powder room and walks out to an area perfect for pool.

Famed Photographer, Wesley Law, came over to my house last week to take a night picture of my new house. Dramatic and cool! Check out his fashion spread in the September 14th Ladue News. The pictures were taken at my Bernoudy listing in Town and Country that is going to be the Ladue News Decorator's Showcase in early October.
I have been so busy with selling houses, sending kids off to college, vacationing and moving into my new house that I have neglected the farm. It has been about 2 months since I have been out here. Yesterday we had a family work detail and a dinner with some friends out at the farm. 18 people with beef brisket, pork tenderloin and grilled venison. So good!
Morning glories are one of my favorite things about this time of the year.
This week I finally had an opportunity to go through the special home located at 11527 Conway Rd. This home was designed by Ben Shapiro. There is so much to be excited about with this home. It is open, tons of windows, fine craftmanship and in great shape. Wait until you see the views out the back windows.....Westwood CC's golf course! 3 Bedrooms, 2830 sq ft, 3.5 baths, $695,000

A highlight of the Clayton Art Fair was seeing the work of Robert Longyear. Robert shares a studio with Alicia LaChance in Maplewood. You can see how they influence each other. I need to get all of my artwork hung in my new home and then see if I have a space for one of Robert's pieces.
Last night the owner of the Magic Chef Mansion in Compton Heights hosted a Birthday Celebration for one of my friends. Homemade chicken ravioli....so good! The birthday cake came from Tim Brennan's Cravings. The most wonderful thing I have ever tasted!
Check out the bowling lane in the basement that was recently restored. It looked like something right out of "And There Will Be Blood".
I was at a fun gathering in Ladue celebrating my Aunt Bunny's new book. Check out the blog from a few days ago for more about her book. I love this piece of artwork in the gracious hostesses' screened porch. The lightbulbs changed patterns.
Also look at her Bernoudy-designed patio and "martini" pool. The house is not a Bernoudy, though she hired him to do some of the outdoor space.

After over 100 years and thousands of meals, my grandmother's dining room table has been refinished. The table once graced her Lindell Blvd home and has 4 leaves. It must have come from the old Warfield shop. Custom Furniture Works did the job. 314-644-0460.
Notice the cork floors that I just rejuvenated. They look great!
