Yes, friends, there truly is a Santa Claus!!!!
And, this sale proves it!
I am excited and honored to share this fantastic estate sale with you. It has been a pleasure to be in this home with its fine 18th-19th-20th and 21st century furnishings and to work with these wonderful clients. Before we get into the details though, I want to share a brief history of the home and property.
The English Cotswold-style home was built in 1926 by the well-known Lammert family (i.e., Lammert Furniture). It was part of a large horse farm that the Lammerts owned. They lived in this 10,000 square foot home and carriage house for a number of years before giving the home and some of the land to the St. Louis Archdiocese. The Archdiocese used the home as a residence for its clergy and converted the east wing screened sun porch in to a chapel. They hired Emil Frei (noted stain glass artisans since 1898) to create the stained glass that remains in the chapel today. Several Cardinals (including Cardinal Ritter and Cardinal Carberry) and Bishops lived in the home for many decades where they held daily masses in the chapel. Eventually, the Archdiocese sold the property, and the priests moved to a new residence near the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis on Lindell Boulevard. The neighborhood to the south and west is still referred to today as the "Carberry Subdivision."
The current residents are the third private party to own the estate after the Catholic Church sold it. They have hosted numerous social and charity events but have decided it's now time to down-size. A new family is scheduled to move in soon to start their own traditions in this very unique and celebrated home.
Now, the details:
****There is no access to the property until 8:00 a.m. on Saturday*****
Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 3255.
****There is no access to the property until 9:00 am. on Sunday*****
-There is no parking on Ladue Road. However, permission has been obtained from the nearby neighborhood trustees to park across the street on COUNTRY FAIR LANE. Please obey the parking attendant in that location and do not block resident mail boxes and driveways. Over-flow parking can be accommodated at White Bridge Lane which is to the west of the estate home.
An attendant will be at the estate driveway entrance to assist you in walking across Ladue Road. If you purchase items that cannot be carried to your car, a LOADING PASS will be given to you so you can pull into the driveway to load and then exit. Just give the loading pass to the attendant as you leave . A different color loading pass will be used each day.
*I hope you can join us for some holiday cheer and
coffee/refreshments (while supplies last) on Saturday while you wait for the doors to open at 9:00 a.m.*
