This is your opportunity to own an amazing home with interesting historical facts on 7.3 private acres. The home features approximately 6,000 sq. ft. of living space on 2 floors with 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 half baths, 2 circular drives and 3 car garage with another half bath and portico.

Step inside the grand entrance and notice the formal living room and dining room with a stately crystal chandelier and custom crown moldings. Walking forward you enter the 50' x 15' great room with a soaring beamed cathedral ceiling, walnut floors, fireplaces on each end of the room, exposed brick walls, paneled wood walls and opens to a wrap-around screen-in porch. Also located off the greatroom is a stamped concrete patio with amazing views. Imagine enjoying your morning cup of coffee or relaxing evenings on the patio and screen-in porch while viewing the breathtaking vistas.  

The great room and screen-in porch are part of the original structure of the home that was built back in the 1920's by Missouri Governor Gardner. Governor Gardner was an avid outdoorsman which was his motivation for purchasing this land and building the clubhouse. The property was called Gardnerville. The clubhouse was built on the hillside with sunset views to be enjoyed by visiting family, friends, employees and political associates. In the 40's the property was sold to 4 individuals who then named the property Skyline Farms. They too hosted parties on the property. Skyline Farms was the location that then Vice-President Barkley proposed to St. Louis socialite, Ms. Jane Hadley (see attached historical articles about the home). In the 60's the current owners purchased the land and clubhouse. They kept the original great room and screen-in porch and then added the remaining portions of the home for their growing family.

The updated 48' x 23' eat-kitchen is absolutely stunning with vaulted ceilings, granite countertops, center island with bar height countertop, stainless appliances (Thermador Professional gas range and hood, Sub Zero refrigerator, Sub Zero Freezer, Sub Zero ice maker, dishwasher and 2 deep kitchen sinks with garbage disposals and instant hot water dispenser), terrazzo floors and 3 walls of windows to enjoy the stunning outside views. The eat-in kitchen also comprises a seating area and home office.  

The main floor master has a 2 story trey ceiling with seating area and wet bar, entrance to private patio, private bath with double bowl vanity and shower, custom walk-in closet and spiral staircase to 2nd floor for a master library and 2nd seating area. The main floor also features 2 additional bedrooms with a jack-n-jill bath, large laundry room and hall bath with over-sized marble bath. 

Upstairs you will find 2 additional bedrooms, bathroom with separate tub and shower, walk-in cedar closet and storage room with built-in shelving.

The walk-out lower level offers 3,643 sq. ft. of finished entertaining space with terrazzo floors, billiards room, wet bar and half bath. Total finished space living of home is approximately 9,643 sq. ft.

Numerous windows were replace in 2010-2011 with maintenance free Anderson insulated windows. Sellers are offering a 1 year homeowner warranty for buyer peace of mind.
