Description

A truly stunning example of Ralph Fournier's classic mid-century modern Ridgewood neighborhood. This Burton Duenke built post-and-beam home was designed to maximize the sense of space with vaulted ceilings, natural lighting, and a fabulous open floor plan. Ridgewood homes were featured in BH&G and other popular home magazines during the 1950's and the lines ran round the block during open houses as people scrambled to get their chance to experience this open and airy new architectural style.

Fast-forward 60 years and MCM is once again the new "black" and this home is a pristine example of why the style was, and is once again, so popular. Just think of the sleek, high-end sophistication of the Rat Pack in front of the sweeping Sands Hotel sign in Las Vegas and you'll start to understand.

Upon entering the home you're struck by the natural light flowing through open spaces and the attention to detail from the beautifully restored original pocket doors and fabulous built-ins to the jaw dropping interior decor. The home is perfectly manicured inside and out with every update a buyer loves so there is nothing left to do here other than enjoy a martini on your private patio.

This home represents the best of the best for Ridgewood including Webster schools, a garage with opener, a wonderful family room, three bedrooms, an updated kitchen, newer roof and systems, and it's perfectly painted inside and out in modern period colors. In the bedrooms you'll love the high strip windows which allow free arrangement of furniture without cutting out light and air and ensuring privacy from the neighbors. And outside you'll enjoy an expansive back yard which was designed for entertaining and play.

Highlights

  • Impeccably maintained and updated to perfection. Nearly everything has been done here from a newer roof, systems, kitchen, paint (inside and out), appliances...the list goes on and on.
  • Three beautiful bedrooms with original built-ins and beautifully restored pocket doors and woodwork throughout. Soft subdued paint colors flow throughout the home in neutral colors to match any decor
  • Talk about a playground! The interior flows to a beautiful exterior with a covered patio and a huge backyard. This is also one of the few homes in Ridgewood with a garage instead of a carport.
  • You can tell the owners of this home truly love and live the MCM lifestyle. So it's no surprise that his home has been featured in numerous articles on Ridgewood and the mid-century modern style.
  • Located on the border of Webster Groves and Crestwood this home gets the best of both worlds. It is one of the few homes in the neighborhood to attend Webster Schools!
  • The entire exterior of the home was recently fully restored (lovingly scraped and painted to it's core) with period colors from the Sherwin Williams Modern Suburban Preservation Palette.
  • Ridgewood has a rich history as one of the earliest mid-century neighborhoods. The style and concept was duplicated across the country but now's your chance to own the real McCoy!
