Location: St. Louis, Missouri
An incredibly restored midcentury modern home has come on the market in St. Louis, Missouri. Built in 1952 by architect Harry Hammerman as a personal residence, the house, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008, was recently renovated and expanded by Ray Simon, who preserved its integrity and many of its original details.
Now comprising 2,633 square feet, the three-bed-three-bath features the clean lines and dramatic rooflines of the era. The facade of brick, glass, and wood creates a balance of natural materials, which extends to the bright and flowing interiors.
The great room, in fact, boasts an expanse of floor-to-ceiling windows and clerestory windows, vaulted and beamed ceilings, a brick hearth, wood-paneled accents, and built-in shelving. To the rear of the space is another wall of glass that opens onto a large screened porch.
The spacious new kitchen and dining addition is found off the living room and includes stainless steel appliances, granite counters, gorgeous cabinetry, and windowed backsplash. As for the bedrooms there are three, including a master suite with open bathroom, a spacious guest bedroom with access to the backyard, and a wood-paneled office-bedroom flex space. One of the bathrooms appears to be original, while the other two could use a further update.
Outside, the three-quarter-acre lot offers plenty of outdoor living opportunities, while an oversized three-car garage provides ample storage space. Located at 219 Graybridge Road, it’s offered at $979,000. Read more about the property here.
