Circa 1865 – This Soulard treasure is perfect union of historical craftsmanship with modern conveniences and sits on beautiful oversized lot. A gracious foyer showcases 11ft ceilings, unique patterned wood floor, and includes main staircase. French doors lead to the living room with stunning decorative marble fireplace, crown molding, and wood encased windows. Pocket doors open to an impressive library with floor to ceiling shelving and a bay window. Working from this space would be a dream. The ample dining room also has floor to ceiling bay window, gorgeous chandelier and is perfect for entertaining or nightly meals. The dining room opens to the back entrance hall with pretty hex tile which leads to a splendid kitchen that was updated in 2014 with custom cabinetry, an island, granite counters, and built-in appliances. The half bath on main level has custom stained glass ceiling to match tile flooring and was designed by previous owner who was craftsman and owner of Preston Art Glass on Chouteau. Again, there is a front and back staircase to the second floor. The owner’s bedroom is nice-sized and includes a balcony overlooking the amazing yard (more on that later). The bathroom was updated three years ago and has marble flooring, dual sink vanity, new mirrors and lighting, modern luxurious separate shower, and clawfoot tub. Two more nicely sized bedrooms are served by a new (2021) full bath. One bedroom is currently used as a sitting room. An exposed brick stairwell leads to a HUGE and BRIGHT flex space on the third floor. Ideal space for bedroom, media room, game room, band practice, hobbies – you name it! Lower level has workout/hobby room; wine cellar with barrel brick ceiling; laundry room with access to backyard; and full bath. Wrought iron fenced yard is show-stopper with flowering trees, gardens, brick walkways and patios, fountain, and gazebo. Landscaped with low-maintenance perennials and designed to bloom from April to end of September. Lots of places to dine al fresco, entertain, and just relax. This home is truly one-of-a-kind and located in a neighborhood with so many great restaurants, coffee shops, and nightlife.
