MCM Rooms with a View: 45 Carrico

April 21, 2014 , In: Field Notes, Residential Properties , With: No Comments


My Prudential colleague Maggie Meyerkord listed this 1959 multi-level on Friday, and I’ve been trying to dig up more info on its history ever since. Perched high atop a bluff overlooking Pelican Island and the Missouri River, this vintage Old Jamestown abode sits on 3 acres and offers loads of mid-century charm.

I visited on Saturday and I have to admit I was pretty taken. The layout is a bit choppy, the kitchen is dated and the pool needs some love, but overall this is one very cool mid-century home…


The living room has vaulted ceilings, exposed brick walls, clever uplighting, and a spectacular view.


That same aesthetic is repeated in the second floor master bedroom, which feels like a treehouse and has an even better view!


It’s accessible via this exquisite floating staircase, located in the dining room, which also glimpses – you guessed it! – that awesome view…


45 Carrico Road has 4 bedrooms & 3 baths in 2624 square feet. It’s listed by Maggie Meyerkord, Prudential Select, for $239,900 and also includes a 4-car garage, a large screened-in porch, and a secret tornado room hidden away in the basement! 


Old Jamestown bluff properties don’t come up very often, especially at this price and in this condition, so give me a shout if you’re interested! I can tell you about the million-dollar property you’d have as your neighbor!

OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY, May 4, 1-3pm. Kindly note that this property is NOT vacant, so please don’t peek in the windows!
