Little in Ladue

From St. Louis At Home Magazine
July/August 2006

Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Tricia Sinn is well aware of the square-footage cap in Ladue, but she's not interested in testing it. Responsible for the modest Cottages of Ladue at Dwyer Place, which were inspired by the book Not So Big House, she preaches residential temperance. "I tell my clients, 'There's a thin line between opulent and ostentatious.'" The seven homes in her development aren't exactly small, ranging in size from 3,900 to 4,600 square feet, but the level of detail made their design difficult. "It's not just another 5,000-square-foot box," she says. The price tag for greater amenity density? The 3,800-square-foot model will go for $1.1 million.
