I went through this home recently and think that it has potential. I would call it Asian, Arts and Craft, California Contemporary.....if you can call a house that!
"Mid Century Modern is the way to explain this fabulous custom built home, designed by famous California architect, Warren Callister. Windows abound throughout, light pours in from everywhere. Hardwood flooring and many built ins are highlights of this one of a kind home. The 3 yr old roof with custom skylights are an added feature. Located on 1.4 acres at the end of the cul de sac, there is an abundance of privacy, lush plantings add to the privacy. Don't miss this one, you will be pleasantly surprised at the uniqueness of this home." $550,000

The large kitchen has gas AND electric cooktops and ovens, granite counters and top-of-the line appliances of every description. The breakfast room adjoins a spacious family room with a fireplace and lots of windows. The first floor master suite has a fireplace, a huge dreamy walk-in closet/dressing room, and a big master bathroom with sauna and bidet in addition to the usual Jacuzzi tub. The house has electric and gas heating (6 zones), while the lot offers privacy, beauty and could easily accommodate a pool. This property has to be seen! $850,000

Today my listing on Takara in Town and Country closed. This home sold on the first day on the market with 6 contracts and 2 back-ups. One of the back-ups ended up being the buyer. So in these competitive situations...make sure you put in a back-up with your Realtor. This is the 2nd deal that I had that a back-up ended up being the Buyer!
There is so much to share on this post.....check out the brochure for this development below...1965. I think the development went bust and only 4 of the Japanese-inspired homes were built. It did not scan correctly though the back of the brochure read: Ira E. Berry- Realtor; Berry-Contrael and Marlock/Newmark- Developer/Builder; Ralph G. Contrael, Concept and Design; Pulaski Bank- Finance.

The lovely Bernoudy home on 18 acres in Town and County that I had listed closed today. The Buyers intend to keep the house and 18 acres. This home was the 2012 Ladue News Decorator's Show House. You can see interior pictures HERE. This is the most expensive home sold in the area so far in 2013.
Arlene Lilie was assigned to decorate one the more dramatic spaces in this Bernoudy home. Her room looked out to an enclosed courtyard featuring a stunning Ernest T. Trova sculpture. The Trova Project, part of Ivey Selkirk, generously loaned close to 100 pieces from their gallery to help the decorators transform their spaces. It was fun to see the different phases of Ernie Trova's work throughout the house.
David Deatherage of Century Design took on the "men's study" which was once one of the boy's bedrooms. The family that built the house had 7 kids....2 boys and 5 girls. David used Custom Furniture Works to transform the standard paneling into a visual delight. He also had them turn the closets into bookshelves. David is helping me with a few items at my new Bernoudy home.
The 2012 Ladue News Decorator's Show House was a great success. St. Louis' Top Designers transformed this Bernoudy home into even more of a masterpiece. I am going to have a Before and After series after I get the photographs in my hot little hands. In the meantime, check out Ladue New's Elegant Living Magazine at the news stands.....and this LINK. This lovely home is for sale through me for $3.5 million...18 acres and the stunning home.
Don't forget to see this stunning Bernoudy-designed house on 18 acres in Town and Country. This is a must see and you only have 1 week left to see it! St. Louis' Top Designers have transformed every room. Buy your tickets HERE for $20 or at the door for $25. All proceeds go to charity!
Last year I helped inspire the Ladue News to pick up the St. Louis tradition of decorator's show houses. The Symphony and Cardinal Glennon's used to have them, though they faded away. Last year my listing at 15 Washington Terrace was the show house. This year I am pleased to announce that my listing located at 13428 Conway Rd in Town and Country will be the 2012 Decorators Show House. The home was built in 1961 by famed architect William Bernoudy and sits on over 18 acres. The decorators will have strict rules detailing what they can do to the structure so that the integrity of the interior is not altered. This will be exciting....check back for more details....it will take place during two weeks in October.
This is a rare opportunity to not only buy a pristine William Bernoudy home that has been unaltered set on 18 gorgeous acres in Town and Country. Architectural experts have viewed this home and stated that it is one of the best Bernoudy homes built. The home has been lovingly maintained by the original family and is ready to be passed onto the next discerning owner. The perfect home for entertaining. It will also be your country retreat where you can relax and view your expansive vistas and abundant nature. You will have a feeling of remoteness, though it is only 20 minutes to downtown St. Louis. This home has expansive windows from every room that let you enjoy your views. Gorgeous terrazzo floors throughout most of the main level. Main level Master Bedroom Suite with a fireplace. Over 6,400 sq. feet of living space, not including a partially finished walk-out lower level.
Yesterday my clients closed on a purchase of a lovely home in Town and County located on 3 acres. The property actually has a horse barn on it and a riding ring....though they have not been used in a while and Town and Country now requires 5 acres to have a horse. What a lovely setting!
