Welcome to 41 Washington Terrace, one of the first private residential streets in St. Louis and famous for the French Norman Clock Tower. Built in 1903, #41 was one of two commissions on the street by Isaac Taylor’s firm and designed by Oscar Enders who also worked in Chicago. The unique design of the three story facade was influenced by sezession and Chicago Prairie School styles. The first owner was Chauncey Ladd of the Hamilton Brown Shoe Company, a riverboat enthusiast. A bird’s eye view of the home reveals the shape of a riverboat and points in the direction of the Mississippi River. The gutter system becomes a series of fountains in the rain. The gorgeous french doors, stained glass, chandeliers, woodwork and architectural details throughout this home will take your breath away. Large rooms throughout allow for a grand lifestyle and conveniences like a main floor laundry await. Historic home lovers will revel in the preservation of this home and the opportunity that awaits.
