For the past 15 years, I’ve lived in a wonderful neighborhood called Old Ferguson West. It’s the kind of place where streets are lined with huge trees and charming old houses, and first-time visitors say things like, “Wow, this looks just like Webster Groves! I had no idea this was here!”
In fact, it does look a lot like Webster, probably because of Ferguson’s similar history as an early railroad town. But there’s one major difference: price! Here up north, you can own a Webster-quality house for WAY less!
Take this 1932 treasure right up the block from me. On the market for the first time in 27 years, this Tudor beauty offers 2110 square feet, a 3-car garage and a wealth of updates. And guess what? It can be yours for just $164,500! Check out the full listing details on 342 Tiffin or just attend the OPEN HOUSE Sunday from 1-3pm. Either way, you are sure to be impressed!
If you fancy yourself more urban than suburban, you may want to take a look at this unique property in the heart of the booming Locust Business District. This amazing live/work space is not just cool because it’s a fully renovated 1913 building with exposed brick walls, a loft and a private garage. It’s also cool because you can use it for commercial, industrial, residential or retail purposes, AND it comes with built-in cash flow!!
That’s right! While you’re making the two-block trek to Pappy’s Smokehouse or Urban Chestnut Brewing, you can feel good knowing that $900 is pouring into your pocket every month, courtesy of a long-term tenant! They get 980 square feet, you get 2425. You also get a solid investment in the prime Midtown Alley redevelopment zone.
3150 Locust has a gallery space, flexible living area, modern kitchen and full bathroom. It’s listed by me for $350,000.
Back in Ferguson, here’s a sweet little house for someone who’d like to be near UMSL. Built in 1938, this nicely rehabbed bungalow offers a budget-friendly alternative to the dorms. Nearly everything is new here, including the plumbing, electric, HVAC and windows. There’s even a freshly finished basement with a half bath, office and large family room! 706 Tesmore has 2 bedrooms & 1 bath in 936sf. It’s listed by me for $69,900.
