“Help, Shannon! I’m stuck living in St. Charles (for work) but I still want a super cool vintage/modern house!” That’s what a reader emailed me recently. And to her, I say: Katie, I think your ship has come in!
Just listed today, this 1965 ranch in the city of St. Charles not only has great modern style, it’s also a quick shot to 370 and located in a nice established neighborhood called Briarcliff.
But here’s the coolest part….it’s built out of concrete blocks!
LOVE the high ceilings and beautiful natural light!
I might tweak the kitchen a bit, maybe add some contrast with a black granite countertop…
But check out this cool finished basement. How fabulous are those stairs?! They make me think of the Brady Bunch.
The patio is pretty slick too. And the yard is 1/4-acre and fully fenced.
This is a fantastic house for entertaining, and a pretty good value for the area – $149,900 for 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths & a two-car garage. It just hit the market today and I bet it sells quickly.

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this unique vintage home, which offers nearly 2,000 square feet of total living space, give me a call!
