If you ask some people, the dividing line between “bad St. Louis” and “good St. Louis” is Delmar Boulevard. Anything south of Delmar is desirable, anything north is probably pretty dodgy, or so the legend goes. Even BBC thought this local quirk was worth documenting.
But as somebody who lives north of Delmar and happens to adore my neighborhood, I think it’s a total shame that whole areas are getting lopped into the junk bin. I know of plenty of great places north of Delmar, thank you, including this sweet little pocket of University City.
That’s where you’ll find this adorable 1938 bungalow, which has lots of nice updates and a bit of a California vibe. I LOVE the streamline kitchen and the back porch. I’m also happy with the peace & quiet that comes from bordering a cemetery, which this house does. It’s Chesed Shel Emeth, which opened in 1893, in case you’re wondering. You’re not spooked out, are you??

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this charming bungalow located in a convenient Mid-County location, I’d be happy to help!
