The Cardinals beat the Red Sox last night to even up the World Series before it heads to St. Louis, so Missouri residents are feeling pretty good today. I don’t know what you’ll make of this news, fine people of Missouri — happiness, sadness, bitterness, feelings of closure? — but Stan the Man’s house has been sold.
Stan Musial, one of baseball’s all-time great players, passed away earlier this year at the age of 92. His home is Ladue, MO, just 15 minutes from Busch Stadium, went on the market in May and was bought in July for $1.6 million. Why we’re showing you the pictures today rather than back in July surely has nothing to do with the fact that the Cardinals are in the World Series.
The 10-room home has nearly 5,300 square feet of living space. A traditional midcentury design with European flair, the home features a grand foyer with checkerboard flooring, a living room lined with French doors, a library and den, and four bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
As you’ll see in these pictures, this house definitely belonged to an older gentleman. Those checkered marble floors, rose petal carpeting and blinding bathroom wallpaper are all straight out of “Grandparent Magazine.”
