Located in St. Louis, Missouri, this five-bedroom, five bath turreted home was designed in 1894 by pioneering local William Levy. A prolific architect who was responsible for a vast array of significant buildings that housed Jewish agencies and programs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Levy first worked as a draftsman before opening his own firm in 1892.
As one of Levy’s residential commissions, the Victorian-style stunner sits on the prestigious Westminster Place in Fullerton, a historic district recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. Recent updates have been coupled with a nod to historic authenticity, and the home oozes curb appeal thanks to a prominent turret and covered front porch. A wood-filled foyer features carved details, a grand staircase, and stained glass windows with fluer-de-lis.
Other original details include 11-foot beamed ceilings, hand-carved moldings and millwork, and inlay wood flooring. The lower-level rooms feature Venetian plaster walls—many with stained glass windows—and in total the home boasts seven fireplaces. The dining room also offers a paneled ceiling, a built-in buffet, and custom cabinetry.
The kitchen has been updated with white and black marble countertops, while the third-floor features an apartment with an all new kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. Other perks include a motorized gate, three-car carriage house, and expansive patio. Love what you see? 4361 Westminster Place is on the market now for $795,000.
