Designed by Bill Bowersox. Featured as one of St. Louis Magazine’s 10 Most Beautiful Homes in 2018. “The owners of this house, one of whom grew up with river vistas, searched a long time for a plot of land with a bluff view. When they found it, on the bluffs of the Mississippi River, the couple built a contemporary-style home with views of the outdoors from every room. From the owner, ‘During the change in seasons, you feel like you’re a part of nature, free and unbound by anything.’ The setting dictated the choice of building materials: a combination of glass, limestone, and redwood siding. Every spring, the owners say, rains flood the bottomlands. When the waters recede, trapped fish are an easy target for birds of prey. ‘We see eagles, chicken hawks, and, in the fall, wild turkeys and dozens of deer looking for corn after the harvest.'”
