Alan Berkowitz, a St. Louis architect, gives us his insights into the positives of renovating a mid-century ranch home.
The Ladue, Missouri, area continues today to honor its heritage as the choice location for a country estate experience, complete with country clubs and horse riding trails. Much of the land has been subdivided over the years into smaller lanes that offer a variety of styles and price points. Although traditional architecture is more prominent, the Ladue area is also home to a variety of customized contemporary homes, particularly from the middle of the last century and including such name-brand architects as Bernoudy, Armstrong, Fournier, Shank, and Obata. The area offers a wide price range of homes from $400,000 to $15M.
One of the main draws for home buyers is the award-winning school district, which covers 8 municipalities including: the City of Ladue, MO as well as portions of Creve Coeur, Frontenac, Richmond Heights, Olivette, Kirkwood & Crystal Lake.
