Take a tour of the family-centric Gerber home just outside Jefferson City.


Ed and Jennifer Gerber’s California Ranch Style home in the Parkview Meadows Subdivision features more than 5,000 square feet and includes a fully-finished basement and playroom.

When designing their dream home with contractor Kent Bentledge, the couple, married for 19 years, wanted the house to grow with their four children. Ed, a medical professional, and Jennifer, a stay-at-home mom, chose a split bedroom floor plan where the master bedroom is off the kitchen on one end of the house and their children’s bedrooms are on the other side. The home features pocket doors and built-in bookshelves to save on space.
