When somebody tells me they’re looking for a mid-century ranch, and they also want to live in the city, the first neighborhood I think of is this tidy enclave of 1950s homes in St. Louis Hills. It’s like a little slice of suburbia, with wide driveways and big trees. And every so often, it yields a sweet vintage gem like this.
Built in 1952, this all-brick cutie has had the same owner since 1967, and that’s probably why it’s still gloriously original inside and out.
I’m nuts about the stone fireplace, glossy hardwoods and aluminum egret storm door! Also the open layout and cove ceilings.
The living room opens to the dining room, which opens to a charming knotty pine den/sunroom. Perfect for an office…
It’s roughly the same size as the kitchen, which is also rockin’ a pretty retro look…
And here’s the best part: the kitchen overlooks a HUGE backyard, at least by city standards. It’s a full 1/3 acre!
So if you’re one of those buyers who appreciates city living, lots o’ lawn and original retro flavor, you better jump on this while you can! 5931 Hilgard Place just hit the market today. It has 3 bedrooms & 1.5 baths in 1457 square feet, and is listed for $226,000 by Susan McKinley, Real Living Gateway.
If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this classic vintage property, which has a finished basement and is walking distance to two great parks, give me a call!
