Charles Eames-Designed St. Louis House Is an Art Deco Dream

Prev
Next

Mid-century modern heavyweight Charles Eames was the architect for the impressive Huntleigh home called the Meyer House. Primarily known for his legendary furniture design collaborations (with wife Ray), Eames also ventured into architecture. His distinctive designs were commissioned by clients who wanted that Eames eye throughout their entire space, not just in one chair.

The Meyer House is now on the market for the first time in 55 years. The Art Deco-style home sits on five acres and has had only two owners since it was built in 1937. Designed for entertaining, this space is sprinkled with gorgeous details and charming surprises around every corner. These photographs capture the unexpected details -- like the door medallions, the intricate window designs and the notes to Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G pressed into a brick wall on the back terrace.

The Meyer House is listed at $2.1 million. For more information, visit the listing page or contact Ted Wight at Dielmann Sotheby's International Realty at 314-725-0009.
