There's a lovely little lane in coveted Ladue where a sweet, secluded cottage sits just out of view! This '40s ranch features classic detailing on the exterior and a contemporary open floor plan on the interior. The 2-sided fireplace serves the living room and front den space, which could be used as a study, office, or TV room. Family or guests can move seamlessly from the living room to the dining room as if the entire space were a dance floor. The adjacent sunroom provides a separate and relaxing living space surrounded by views of trees and the property's lush landscapes. With a full bath and fireplace, the lower level has been finished in the past and is prime for being refinished again. The large pool and surrounding yard make summer a joy! One patio is just off the dining room and another patio is next to the pool - both are perfect for cocktails, morning coffee, and outdoor entertaining. Sellers have never lived on the property and prefer as-is offers. Opportunity abounds here!
