Historic c.1930 Maritz & Young Stone Manor Reduced to $5.995-Million

2701 S. Lindbergh Boulevard, Huntleigh, Missouri, United States, 63131

An historic property just outside St. Louis, Missouri has recently been reduced to a little under $6-million. The 6.5-acre estate has been on and off the market since May of 2014 and was listed as much as $7.499-million.  Today, the Orthwein Mansion is awaiting a new family to move in and enjoy for many years to come. It’s being called one of the finest estates in the St. Louis area and with roots dating back to the early 1930s this property has had a variety of prominent owners over the years including original owners Percy Orthwein & wife Clara. A private driveway leads you up to the Maritz & Young designed stone manor offering over 11,580 square feet of living space with a total of 22 rooms, 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, and incredible detail throughout. The first floor features terrazzo floors with a glamorous staircase, elegant chandeliers, decorative plaster mouldings, and palatial formal rooms, while the second houses the spacious master suite as well as 5 of the other bedrooms. Downstairs is perfect for entertaining with a wooden bar, home theatre, billiards room, and a 1,000-bottle wine cellar. Other features include an updated gourmet kitchen, large swimming pool, expensive decks, outdoor fireplace, and detached 4-car garage. Also included with the sale is a nearly century old kidnapping story you can tell at dinner parties. New Year’s Eve 1930 the original owner’s son, Adolphius, was being chauferred in the family Lincoln limousine down the home’s long winding driveway when a masked gunman jumped onto the car and demanded the chauffeur get out. The kidnapper drove off with the Lincoln & Adolphius. The whole ordeal lasted 20 hours before the boy was safely reunited with his family unharmed. Whether it’s the charming good looks, the mysterious past, or just the bang for your buck, this home is without a doubt one of St. Louis’ most intriguing opportunities.
