Grab Bag: Mucho Masonry & a Modern Ranch

April 18, 2014 , In: Residential Properties , With: No Comments


At first glance, you might assume that the neatest thing about this house is the castle-like turret out front. It holds an enchanting spiral staircase, and I admit it’s pretty awesome. But I’ve been inside this 1934 Pasadena Hills gem and I can tell you, hands down, it has one of the most spectacular vintage bathrooms I have ever seen! Oh, the mosaic! Breathtaking!! The listing photos really don’t do it justice, but you can get an extra peek here4200 Roland has 3 bedrooms & 2.5 baths in 2759 square feet. It was just listed yesterday by Laura Ludwig, Lauralei Properties, for $338,500. 


If you like the idea of your very own castle but you prefer a more rustic setting, check out this modern version of Tudor style in Glencoe. Built in 2002, it was designed to look like an old English cottage, and it sure is cute! It also comes with three acres of forest and a full apartment above the garage! 19141 Deep Woods has 4 bedrooms & 3.5 baths in 1786 square feet. It’s listed as a short sale by Claire Gardner, On Point Realty, for $250,000.


I must have been a stone mason in another life, because in this one I am an absolute sucker for any place with elaborate rock work. If I could live at the Black Madonna Shrine in Pacific, I totally would. But this 1954 ranch in Crestwood is pretty sweet too! Sitting on a half-acre private lot, the house is kinda meh at the moment, but the backyard is 150% WOW!!! It features an inground pool surrounded by numerous stone structures, even a “rockin” bar! It’s like having the Venice Cafe right outside your back door! 36 Flamingo has 2 bedrooms & 1.5 baths in 1540 square feet. It’s listed by Cheryl Tucker, Real Living Gateway, for $274,000.


Long, lean and completely gorgeous inside, this 1960 MCM is so sprawling and wide open, it should come with a pair of roller skates! When I first saw it, I thought “Great, another slab.” But no! This baby has a full basement. It’s also a house that I’ve driven past a zillion times, but I didn’t recognize it with the new windows across the front. Yes, this is the mid-century modern ranch directly across from Lindbergh High School. What do you think of the new look? 4835 South Lindbergh has 4 bedrooms & 4.5 baths in 4034 square feet. It’s listed by Brendan McCarty, Keller Williams, for $449,900 and is open Saturday, 1-3pm.


Finally, here’s a historic treasure that’s just too amazing to pass up. Built around 1860, this elegant mansion overlooks the Missouri River in New Haven and includes everything you’d need for your fabulous country estate – 16.5 acres, a dairy barn, an old smoke house, a pool, and some of the most glorious bookshelves you’ll ever set eyes upon. Talk about a perfect place for a B&B! And it’s only an hour from St. Louis County! 409 Bates has 4 bedrooms & 2.5 baths in 3971 square feet. It’s listed by Lynn Andel, Laura McCarthy, for $575,000.
