Right across the street from 15 Birlin, the other Ferguson house I featured today, one of my very favorite properties just went up for rent. I got to tour this unique home during an estate sale last year, and I haven’t stopped thinking about it ever since. Built in 1890 by a carpenter named William Chandler, 111 Lewis offers an amazing mix of new and old, and its location at the end of a one-way street makes it a total hidden gem.
From the front, it looks like a classic Victorian farmhouse – cute & cozy, on a quiet corner lot. But from the side, WOW, it’s anything but. The current owners spent years building on and updating, and what remains now is a house absolutely packed with dramatic surprises. You’ll find soaring ceilings, a loft-style master bedroom, and many, many interesting & artistic details. There’s also a wonderful private garden with a pond and gazebo, all within walking distance of the Ferguson Farmers Market.
The owners moved to San Diego a while back, so their son is managing the property and looking to rent it for $1,200 a month. If you’re interested, give him a call at (314) 322-0763. And be sure to tell him I sent you! This would make a great rental for someone working at UMSL or Express Scripts…
If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show this incredible bargain of a home, I’d be happy to help!
