ST. LOUIS — A multi-million dollar mansion built in the early 20th century and designed by one of St. Louis’ pre-eminent architectural firms at the time has hit the market.
Located on a private road in the DeBaliviere Place neighborhood, 27 Woodson Terrace is less than 1 mile from Forest Park.
The 8,268-square-foot mansion features nine bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a half bath spread over three spacious floors.
Barnett, Haynes & Barnett designed the house to be fireproof. It was built entirely of brick, concrete, steel and stone in 1906.
The company is also responsible for several historic buildings in the St. Louis area; including: the Cathedral of St. Louis, the Palace of Liberal Arts at the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, Church of the Immaculate Conception and rectory, Hotel Stratford in Alton, the Busch family mausoleum in Bellefontaine Cemetery, and the former headquarters of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in downtown St. Louis.
The front entrance features pillars imported from Europe. Once through the front door, the foyer opens to oversized living and dining spaces and leads to an imperial staircase. This staircase leads to an even larger seating area with original stained glass windows and bookshelves.
You’ll find a private fireplace and bathroom in the primary bedroom suite, plus three more bedrooms and two more bathrooms on the second floor.
The third floor has a large lounge and trunk room and the rest of the bedrooms and bathrooms.
The original mosaic tile still exists on the main level.
Woodson Terrace is part of the National Register of Historic Places.
