Distinguished Tudor Mansion for Sale in South STL Co.


ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – History buffs and architecture admirers will indeed be drawn to one particular home in southern St. Louis County; one that is inspired by 16th-century England but was built in Depression-era America.

40 Grantwood Lane is an impressive 5,700 square foot Tudor-style gem located in the village of Grantwood. The municipality, which has less than a thousand inhabitants, is notable for its important attractions: the residence of President Ulysses S. Grant White Haven Estate and Grant’s Farm.

The mansion was built in 1931 in the midst of the Great Depression. That same year, the man-made lake of the Ozarks would be completed and the St. Louis Cardinals would dominate Philadelphia athletics in the World Series.

The Tudor style—identifiable by a two-tone facade of stone and stucco, steep forward-facing gables, and a multicolored tiled roof—underwent a revival in the United States beginning in the mid-19th century and well into the 1900s. 1930.

Tudor home building declined after World War II, coinciding with the rise of Cape Cod, Colonial, and ranch-style homes.

This particular Tudor features six bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half baths, and adjoining parking for three vehicles.

Many of the original features of the home are still intact, such as the stunning stained glass and stained glass windows, as well as the natural woodwork, moldings and exposed beam ceilings.
