I’m huge fan of the TV show Rehab Addict, which features a lady named Nicole Curtis who buys condemned houses and then revives their historical grandeur. I love this gal because she preserves original architectural details whenever possible, and recognizes that old houses and old materials are usually unmatched in terms of quality.

I thought of her when I saw this 1929 Cotswold-style cottage hit the market, right after I picked my jaw up off the floor! Because clearly, the people who renovated this amazing U.City home are kindred spirits!

Their respect for the original architecture is obvious, and their attention to detail just makes me want to give somebody a hug! Somehow they’ve preserved the storybook magic envisioned all those years ago but also updated the house in a way that’s chic and complementary.

Just trust me when I say you definitely want to see the rest of the photos! You may also want to attend the open house Saturday from noon to 3pm.

662 Vassar Avenue has 4 bedrooms & 2 baths in 2100 square feet. It was listed Friday by Jordan Schoen, Invest St. Louis, for $489,000.

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this unique property, which is the latest project from Period Restoration, give me a call…
