1718 Liggett Drive - Updates and Neighborhood Info

This pristine 1952 Mid-Century Modern home was originally built by Burton W. Duenke in collaboration with Ralph Fournier (one of St. Louis’ most renowned MCM architects).  It is most assuredly one of the last remaining, and best example of how Fournier envisioned his homes would live/look over the years.  Nearly every square inch has been restored to its former glory including careful selection of paint colors, period lighting, and interior design.

The updates and features are numerous and include:

  • Newer furnace and AC (2005)
  • Newer flexible, insulated ductwork and additional attic space insulation
  • Roof new in 2009 (includes full coverage ice shield, important for low pitches)
  • Newly seeded front lawn (fall 2012)
  • Freshly painted, period correct exterior using historically accurate colors from Sherwin Williams Suburban Modern Preservation Palette
  • Original built-ins, including hall bookcase and master bedroom dressing table vanity.
  • Restored, original woodwork, including closet doors, pocket doors, and exposed beams
  • Updated kitchen and bath
  • Attached Garage with 2 door openers (rare for a Ridgewood home)
  • Covered brick patio with privacy screen and fire pit area
  • Storage shed
  • Wood burning fireplace with floor to ceiling stone
  • Family room addition seamlessly blends with original architecture
