April 12, 2013 , In: Residential Properties , With: No Comments

#7 Little Ln

7 Little Lane, Ladue – How about some eye candy to brighten up this dreary day? This fantastic MCM may be too pricey for most buyers, but it sure is fun to look at! Designed in 1948 by architect Eugene Mackey Sr. (who also designed the Climatron at Missouri Botanical Garden), this stunning contemporary offers 3 bedrooms & 4.5 baths in 3138 square feet. It also sits on a prime acre in Mid-County and features a whole host of luxury amenities. Which is probably why it’s listed for $939,000 by Ted Wight, Dielmann Sotheby’s. Even if your budget can’t handle that, make sure you check out the interior pics! So cool!

#2 Sunswept Dr.

2 Sunswept Ln, Creve Coeur – I wrote about another house in this subdivision back in February. But I have to say, I like this one better! It may not have a basement but it’s still a classic mid-century design by Ralph Fournier, and it’s been updated in a way that totally captures the original charm but still seems very current and stylish. You also can’t beat the location – nicely tucked away near Lindbergh and Olive! 3+2, 1782sf, listed for $349,000 by Julie Drier, Dielmann Sotheby’s.

#3 Capitol Hill

3 Capitol Hills, unincorporated NoCo – As some readers know, I used to run another popular blog called NOCO, which was all about North County. I wrote about local real estate there as well, and one of my favorite stories was about this historic house on Capitol Hill. You’ll have to read the original feature to get the full scoop, but let’s just say I’m starting to wonder about all those ghost stories. I mean, perhaps the current owner is selling this as a flip, or maybe there’s another reason why he’s walking away after just 10 months?? 4+3, 3803sf, .82 acres, listed for $70,000 by Rochelle Dixon, Beyond Realty.

#33 Owl Creek Ln

33 Owl Creek Lane, Labadie – Here’s a new listing out of Franklin County, and it sure looks like an old farmhouse, doesn’t it? But actually, this amazing custom home was built just 19 years ago and it’s super contemporary inside. I adore the two-story great room! Also the unusual angles both inside and out. Trust me when I say you’ll be surprised by this faux vintage gem! It has 4 bedrooms & 5 baths and sits on 14.8 private acres. Listed by Elizabeth Wehner, Prudential Alliance, for $660,000.

#60 Fourfield Dr.

60 Fourfield Dr, Troy – Looking for a sprawling country retreat you can put a little sweat equity into? This unique stone house just outside of Troy may be the perfect find! Built in 1975, it definitely needs some TLC but it also has some very neat features, including a stone fireplace, wood beams, a barn, a lake and 3.8 acres of land. Quite a score for $165,000! 3+3, 2258sf,  listed by Suzanne Matyiko, Prudential Alliance. 

#101 Eldridge Ave

101 Eldridge, Webster Groves – I originally wrote about this adorable Lustron home last June, and I can’t believe it hasn’t sold yet! It may be on the small side, with just 2 bedrooms & 1 bath, but it was recently renovated and it’s absolutely gorgeous inside! Best of all, the price just dropped by $20,000! So if you’ve been holding out for a bargain-priced Lustron, here you go! Listed by Carolyn McAvoy, McAvoy Realty, for $100,000.

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you any of these delightful vintage homes, give me a call!
