In yet another example of “don’t judge a book by its cover,” this enchanting little cottage in Frontenac has plenty of surprises to offer. For one, it’s 125 years old – one of the original farmhouses in the area. It’s also delightfully contemporary and open inside, the result of a 1980s remodel.

LOVE this bird mural and the great natural light…

And the kitchen’s not too bad either…

But the real treat here is what you’ll find in the backyard. Gorgeous landscaping, of course, but there’s also a sweet screened-in porch…

And just beyond that is a lovely pool…

And who can have a pool in Frontenac without also having a pool house?

This one just happens to have a fireplace and full basement, and was designed by renowned mid-century architect William Bernoudy!

As you MCM fans probably know, Bernoudy studied under Frank Lloyd-Wright and was responsible for some of the most cutting edge modern architecture in St. Louis. Thirteen of his creations have sold through the MLS over the past 5 years (and a few others privately), with prices ranging from $589,000 to $3 million.

So the price tag on this particular structure seems like a real bargain, especially when you add in the farmhouse! If you can look past the lone bedroom and find a way to use the space creatively, you c0uld have one heck of a score here!

1100 South Spoede offers 1700 square feet, not counting the pool house, on an acre of land. It was just listed yesterday by Carol Klein, Janet McAfee, for $450,000.

Check out the additional photos and give me a call if you want to view this unique property! A bit of cosmetic updating is probably needed, but the mid-county location and beautiful setting are hard to beat!
