Since launching this blog 9 months ago, I’ve been shocked at the number of out-of-state buyers who’ve contacted me looking for unique properties. I’ve been even more surprised by how many want exactly the same thing: a front row seat on one of Missouri’s grand rivers.
Many of us in St. Louis take it for granted, but we do in fact live at the confluence of North America’s two greatest rivers: the Missouri and the Mississippi. And though river properties do come up for sale every now and then, most are either super expensive, flood-prone or stuck with some kind of industrial or otherwise ugly/impeded view of the river.
That’s not the case here…
This 1910 house in Herculaneum, about 35 minutes from downtown St. Louis, sits in one of those lovely, all-natural sections along the Mississippi where all you can see is miles of rolling water and Illinois farmland. Even better, the bluff-top location offers great safety from flooding.
Inside, the decor is a bit dated. Or should I say retro-fabulous?
But if you can see past that and focus on the bones of this house – including the modern addition – there’s amazing potential here.
There’s also an inground pool overlooking the river, and a spa room with a hot tub, sauna and full bath!
But the real treasure, of course, is that fantastic water view. And it can be yours, along with .39 acres and a 2650-square-foot house, for just $239,500!

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this unique waterfront property, which could really shine with some cosmetic fixing, give me a call!
