Greetings from 10,000 feet above sea level! I’m currently on a quick getaway to Colorado but I still want to share a very cool property with you: my latest listing at 11385 Old Halls Ferry!
Built in 1907 by a prominent businessman looking to flaunt his success, this large Victorian home has changed somewhat over the years. But if you look at this early photo, you can see that the original owners also liked to use landscaping for privacy.
Now surrounded almost entirely by woods, this 1.41-acre “island” in the heart of NoCo only has only one nearby neighbor and is nearly impossible to see from the street, so it truly is a secluded retreat. It also boasts numerous updates, like roof, windows & AC, and an incredible FIVE garages…
Yes, some of the interior could probably use some cosmetic tweaking but the rooms are huge and the bones are fabulous!
I especially like the original woodwork and the beautiful stained glass in the stairwell. Also the pine floors under the carpet, the screened porch, and the walk-up attic with potential for more finished space.
Of course, the real prize here is the yard, which is lush and private at every turn. And gardeners will be thrilled to hear that there’s a rare functional cistern, which captures rain water and then pumps it out via a dedicated spigot!
To be honest, I have admired this property for most of my life. I’ve driven past it a zillion times and always wondered what it looked like inside. Now I know, and you can too! Just come to my OPEN HOUSE on Sunday from 1-3pm!
11385 Old Halls Ferry has 3 bedrooms & 1.5 baths in 2046sf. It hit the market for the first time in 25 years this week, and is listed by me for $189,900.
If you’d like more info on this historical St. Louis County homestead, which is chicken-friendly by the way, give me a call…
