Are you looking to ESCAPE the hustle and bustle of “Life”? Are you searching for that perfect country home, hunting lodge or mini-farm? Are you concerned about “Better Together” and want to be just west of St. Louis County, away from uncertain future real estate taxes? Look no further! This dramatic, exposed post & beam home is an extremely rare find just minutes out of St. Louis County near beautiful St. Albans.
Are you a St. Louis Cardinals fan? What an impressive display of team support one can share with a stunning stained glass cardinal window at the east side of this beautiful home. The home also features true post and beam attributes with even more gorgeous stained glass and etched windows, antique doors and antique hardware throughout. From the majestic vaulted ceiling with tongue and groove wood planking to the dramatic windows placed throughout the home allowing the beauty of the surrounding scenery to pour through in every direction, this home features nature’s showcase at every turn. From the features of the main floor galley kitchen area, to the main floor observation family room, to the surrounding, all wood pinned beam construction, this home begs to the State of Missouri’s model of “SHOW ME”! The home was designed and constructed by New Hampshire’s architect, David Howard.
This home also features an over-sized, two-car garage, with a studio/storage area on the upper level. All appliances stay! A portion of the surrounding wooded area was once pasture for horses. This country property has the unique history of being lived in by several very creative people. They were drawn to this home by the natural beauty and their passion for country living. Included in this group are the Director of Art for Mary Engelbreit, a nationally known St. Louis artist, a local, award-winning artist who earned his living on the property with commercial art, and the current owner, an amateur, traditional wooden boat builder who completed his sailboat and now sails it on the coast of Maine.
Do you need a shop and/or an extra garage? Check out this 30’ X 50’ building with a concrete floor, heat, AC & telephone! The premises also sport a screened gazebo at the pond with a deck. Love to fish? Once again, we have you covered with over an acre’s worth of fishing pond well stocked with bass, catfish and bluegill alike.
