FRONTENAC, Mo. – Celebrated architect and interior designer Bobby McAlpine designs houses to be sanctuaries of serenity for his clients, creating a detailed environment that allows the head and the heart to be at ease.

McAlpine’s deft hands were put to use, fashioning the look of an English-inspired home seated on 1.45 beautiful acres in Frontenac.

Lines of enormous trees surround the home’s expansive yard on the front, side, and back, giving it a sense of seclusion and peace. The property features a guest cottage and pool house, as well as a saltwater pool, a spa, a built-in trampoline, and a hardtop court for pickleball or basketball, all of which border the Mercy Retreat and walking trail.

Built in 2006, the 8,300-square-foot home at 42 Countryside Lane has 6 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, and 2 half baths.

According to the homeowners, reclaimed barnwood was used for the flooring in the great room, giving it English cottage vibes. The kitchen has two islands, two pantries, and a cozy breakfast nook that is deceptively large.

The lower level of the home was remodeled for entertainment with a movie theater, a game room, a theatre stage, and a wet bar.
