6770 Delor, St. Louis Hills – If you happened to see this house on the MLS, you probably skimmed right by. The exterior pics don’t do it justice, which is such a bummer because this 1947 city charmer has SO much to offer. It’s a corner house with a bit of Art Deco flavor and a super lush yard. Vintage fans will also adore the original kitchen cabinets, retro bar and one-of-a-kind bathroom! Seriously, check out these photos! 1406 square feet, 2+2, $219,900, listing courtesy of Sandie Hea, RE/MAX Results.
818 Marco, Kirkwood – With our age-old ties to France, it’s not surprising that Mansard roofs are a common sight in St. Louis. Typically you’ll find them on older city homes, but in the case of this brand new listing, here’s a nice example out of Kirkwood. Built in 1970, this multi-level house definitely has a regal French feel to it. In fact, I bet Marie Antoinette would feel right at home in the pink living room! 2200+ square feet, 4+2, $439,900, listing courtesy of Carolyn Schutte, Coldwell Banker Gundaker.
310 Jackson, Augusta – Here’s something you don’t see everyday: a huge metal shed converted into a Tuscan-style villa! Built in 1993, this one-of-a-kind structure sits right next to the Katy Trail, within easy walking/biking distance of Augusta Brewing and several wineries. Use it as a residence or a commercial storefront. Either way, you’re sure to appreciate the unique stonework, custom murals and beautiful view! 2560 square feet, 4+1, $165,000, listing courtesy of Tracey Biggs, Robeck Realty.
5 West Sherwood, Overland – Want to live near Clayton but can’t afford the steep Mid-County prices? Say hello to Lake Sherwood! This private enclave of mid-century homes is one of the best kept secrets in the area, and it’s actually pretty rare for houses to go up for sale there. This one, built in 1950, doesn’t have one of the prime lake view lots in the subdivision, but it is newly renovated and comes with an inground pool! 1923 square feet, 3+2, $199,900, listing courtesy of Gregory Harwood, RE/MAX Results.
700 Tuxedo, Webster Groves – I’m a big fan of the Tuxedo Park neighborhood in Webster Groves. It’s so close to everything and yet also out-of-the-way. But what’s really cool there is the housing stock. Lots of quirky Victorians and cute little bungalows, and now, even a converted church! This historical stone building, circa 1900, is in need of a total rehab, but just imagine the potential! This could make one heck of a live/work space, and it qualifies for state & federal tax credits! 4318 square feet, 5+4, $298,500, listing courtesy of Scott Sturdevant, Red Brick.
