12633 Bradford, Sunset Hills – Colorado? California? I can’t quite pinpoint the vibe of this 1983 Sunset Hills contemporary, but I like what I see! This striking home sits on nearly 3/4 acre and has some spectacular spaces for entertaining and just chillin’ out. 5+5, 3139sf, listed 8 days ago by Joan Lenz, Coldwell Banker Gundaker, for $455,000
1162 Mozart, Kirkwood – In terms of curb appeal, this 1959 split-level has definitely seen better days. But if you can look past the exterior, you will find a lovely mid-century diamond just waiting to be unearthed. Love the location and the open layout! So much potential here! 3+2, 1528sf, listed 6 days ago by John Jackson, RE/MAX, for $179,900
430 West Front, Washington – If your dream is to open a restaurant and/or live next to one of the greatest rivers in North America, this 1853 property in downtown Washington MO fits the bill. Officially known as the Bernard Wiese building, this former storefront of a tobacconist and wine merchant directly overlooks the Missouri River and can be used for either commercial or residential purposes. Plus, it’s just a short walk to the local Amtrak station, and the original rock walls are amazing! 3+3, 4200sf, listed 12 days ago by Pamela VanBuren, Coldwell Banker Gundaker, for $374,900.
1070 Boone, Florissant – St. Louis may be a basement kind of town, but there are still buyers who don’t mind a slab. Especially when it comes with nearly an acre of land, like this 1980s anomaly in Old Town Florissant! If you’re looking for lots of outdoor space and you don’t mind doing some cosmetic updating, this could be a real find. 3+2, 1593sf, listed 18 days ago by Scott Scheffing, Avenue Real Estate, for $143,500
9900 Crestwood Dr, Crestwood – Now here’s one that I would expect to be a slab, but it actually has a full basement. This 1957 MCM ranch is being sold as a short sale, but it backs to woods and has loads of style, so maybe it’s worth the trouble? It certainly is a nice size and the location is pretty sweet. 4+3, 1975sf, listed 19 days ago by Daniel Acheson, Coldwell Banker Gundaker, for $219,900
20 Westmoreland Place, Central West End – Like many St. Louisans, I grew up ogling the gorgeous mansions near Forest Park, wondering what it’s like to live in historical private enclaves like Portland Place and Westmoreland. As a magazine scout, I actually got to visit quite a few jaw-dropping homes in the CWE, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one with more colorful carpet than this 1943 Georgian beauty in Westmoreland Place. Holy moly! And did I mention there’s a tennis court and an elevator?! 8+7, 6562sf, listed 20 days ago by Gary Boyson, Janet McAfee, for $1,249,500
