Back from the Dead: 215 Carson Rd

September 27, 2013 , In: Residential Properties , With: No Comments


When I first arrived in Old Ferguson West 14 years ago, this 1930 brick bungalow was occupied by a sweet old woman who always kept the place very tidy. Then at some point, I guess it became too much upkeep for her and she moved to a nursing home, and for some reason, the house was just allowed to sit.

Years went by and it really started to look bad, and I know I wasn’t the only one who hoped the city would eventually seize it. But lo and behold, a team of rehabbers purchased the property a few months ago, and now I’m thrilled to say that this gorgeous home has been beautifully revived!


Nearly every system is brand new, from the roof and electric to plumbing and HVAC, but thankfully lots of original vintage details remain! I adore this charming built-in (above), and the gleaming hardwoods are lovely too!

Best of all, there’s so much usable space here – more than 1800 square feet. And that doesn’t even include the covered porches or this fabulous rooftop deck…


And did I mention the Ferguson Farmers Market is only a block away? Or that the neighborhood is on the National Register of Historic Places?!

No question, this is a heck of a house for the money! And if you’re looking for vintage character with modern amenities – all for just $129,900 – this baby is hard to top! Come check it out at the OPEN HOUSE Saturday from 4-6pm, coinciding with Ferguson’s annual StreetFest (and the Manly Man High Heel Keg Relay) right down the hill!!

215 Carson has 3 bedrooms & 2 baths, plus a main floor den & mudroom. I just listed it Wednesday, so snag it while you can!

If you’d like to schedule a private showing, give me a call!
