Henry Tudor hardly had a home that compares to this exquisite Tudor Revival. Conceived by one of the most prolific STL architects of his day, Louis LaBeaume, this fine home was built in 1909 for John W. Kauffman, a prominent grain merchant, and at one-time, owner of the largest private art collections in the US. This exquisite property has also been home to some of the most well-known St. Louis Families including members of the Wright, Lemp, and Lamberts. With its hand-carved millwork, grand parlor, large dining room, paneled library, Chinese-themed solarium, and prohibition-ready rathskeller, the original features of this home make it remarkable. However, its recent updates are what make it a true standout – featuring a beautifully remodeled kitchen, luxurious primary bedroom suite, updated mechanical systems, newer roof, and impeccable exterior tuckpointing and stucco-work. This home is ready for a new owner to move right in and bring back the sounds of joy, laughter, and love.
