Grab Bag: 5 ways to spell Fabulous

3434 Gravois Ave NE, South City – Ooh, I have loved this building for YEARS! It sits on an old section of Route 66, right across from the South Grand Schnucks, and I am absolutely in love with its streamline Deco facade. All that sleek, gorgeous metal and stacked stone – WOW! I’m gonna assume it was built for the Cleaning Equipment Company (the longtime owner) but I’m not sure. All I can tell you is that it’s nearly 4000 square feet in a highly visible location, selling for just $89,500! Retail anyone? Listed 4 days ago by Andrew Spavale, Spavale Realty.

More photos coming!  This beautiful cottage is warm and inviting

136 West Old Watson, Webster Groves – Holy moly, talk about curb appeal! This classic Webster cottage just hit the market today and the yard is so gorgeous, I can’t wait to see what the interior pics look like! Sweet location too! 2+1, 1633sf, .236 acre, listed by Sue & Mike Williams, Coldwell Banker Gundaker, for $220,000. 


2621 Highway 100, Gray Summit – I swear this is a coincidence but here’s another house that just happens to sit on old Route 66. Built in 1861, it’s a large brick building that was once a stage coach stop and later a post office. Today it’s a residence with commercial potential and handicap access, not far from the popular Purina Farms! Lots of possibilities here! Selling as a short sale.  4+2, 2348sf, .30 acre, listed yesterday by Dawn Kilburg, Prudential Select, for $120,000.

2627 South 11th, Soulard – As I’ve written about before, I’m a big fan of rehabber Orlando Askins, a California-based realtor who transforms derelict city properties into fresh, modern showplaces. He always does such a beautiful job, leaving just enough of the old to give his wide open floor plans lots of vintage character, and his latest project is no different. It’s a gorgeous rehab in Soulard with a 5-year tax abatement. And get this, the seller will consider all offers!  3+2.5, 2316sf, listed today for $350,000. 


13321 Pine Creek, Town & Country – If you’re looking for a mid-century home with super easy access to Highway 40, it’s hard to top this 1951 mini estate in Town & Country. The price is steep but just look at what you get: a 5000-square-foot main house, a 5-room guest house, a pool & pool house, an ice cream gazebo (!!), and 2.130 private acres in the heart of West County!  I pulled the aerial view so you can appreciate the entire property, but the other pics are definitely worth a look. Listed today by Kathleen Woodworth, Coldwell Banker Gundaker, for $675,000. 

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you any of these unique properties, give me a call…
