The Castle in the Bluffs of St. Albans

4Located behind the private gates of The Bluffs of St. Albans, 1126 Wings Road is an incredible, one-of-a-kind luxury home that’s new, improved, and back on the market.  The St. Albans community is both beautiful and exclusive.  With a small town area, country club, a beautiful lake for fishing and relaxation, and two golf courses, both of which are ranked in the top 10 in Missouri, this quaint and historical part of Missouri gives residents a chance to experience a simpler, laid-back lifestyle.  The home offers almost 9,000 total square feet including five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a gorgeous hearth room, and luxury features that make this property a homeowner’s dream.
Custom designed by St. Albans Construction, the master bedroom suite is stunning.  It has an unbelievable fireplace, an enormous walk-in closet, and a master bath complete with a two-story shower, located within one of the home’s stunning turret towers, with a waterfall and ample seating.  Other custom luxury additions include a temperature controlled wine cellar in the finished lower level walkout.  The lower level also includes a huge kitchen and bar area, family room, exercise room, office, and a bedroom with a full bath and an additional half bath.












The location of this home offers views that simply cannot be described.  Every window in the home gives you an incredible view overlooking the gorgeous trees of the bluffs. From the deck, you can relax and enjoy the beautiful smell of nature right outside your door. It’s a bird’s-eye-view you just have to see to believe.  There’s nothing quite like sitting in the study located at the top of the two-story turret.  Up there, you’re surrounded by beautiful windows that allow you to stretch your vision across the sky and over the trees, leading you right to the most breathtaking view of the Missouri River.
Currently listed at $2,250,000, the current owners of Wings Road have made significant improvements all over the home and the grounds.  Starting outside, they’ve replaced the front yard landscaping and added landscaping to the back, installed LED landscape and hardscape lighting, built a retaining wall, added a fence and a new deck, patio pavers, fire bowls and a fire pit, an underground pet fence, the entire exterior has been repainted, and the roof completely replaced.  The best of all?   This property now includes a Gunite pool and hot tub with an unbelievable view of the surrounding trees.

Around the home, they’ve installed a new alarm system with replacement keypads and wireless.  In the attic, new insulation has been installed with pest repellent, along with termite biting plugs around the perimeter.  The hardwood floors have been sanded, re-stained, and re-finished throughout the entire home, and the carpet has been replaced in all of the upstairs as well as the master bedroom.  An audio system has been installed, and all lighting has been exchanged for Leviton dimmer rocker switches.

In the kitchen, the microwave, dishwasher, icemaker, and wine fridge have all been replaced.  There’s also a new pantry.  The homeowners have gone above and beyond to update Wings Road to the fullest.  From water system and plumbing repairs, sealing floors, servicing the heating and cooling units to painting the entire upstairs and installing new window seats, there has been a lot of time, hard work, and love poured into this incredible home.  For showings or more information about 1126 Wings Road, contact Tracy Ellis.
