A 1951 ranch on 2 acres in Kirkwood – WHO’S IN?! This secluded gem near Powder Valley Nature Center offers amazing views of the surrounding woods and wildlife, plus a huge screened-in porch, a warm, cozy living space & a finished walk-out basement. SO much to like here! 34 Lemp has 3 bedrooms & 3 baths in 1705sf. It’s listed by Barbara Wittich, CBG, for $385,000. 


Love to live downtown but concerned about parking and safety? This sun-filled loft on Washington Avenue not only has enormous windows and 2000+ square feet of living space, it’s also graced with its very own private garage! Bonus points for being FHA-approved and all around super cool! 2020 Washington Ave #101 has 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms. It’s listed by Patti Thomas, RE/MAX Results, for $235,000.


So the tax record says this house was built in 1910 but a previous listing puts the date at 1848. I haven’t been able to verify either way yet but I’m leaning toward the older date. Who knows? Either way, this gorgeous country estate is surrounded by English-style gardens and was once featured in Southern Living magazine. 11 acres! Character aplenty! Wow! 2401 Stonehouse has 4 bedrooms & 3.5 baths in 3000sf. It’s listed by Eunice Burgio, Prime Properties, for $498,500.


Closer in but still offering acreage & privacy, this 1972 rustic/modern ranch in Wildwood offers a treehouse feel and pretty views out every window. Thumbs up to the vaulted ceilings and finished lower level. So much potential here! 1221 Shepard has 3 bedrooms & 2.5 baths in 1900sf. It sits on 4.2 acres and is listed by Robert Hargrove, CBG, for $265,000.


Well, there’s only one way to describe this Ballwin home. Either the sellers loved to paint or they loved to hire painters, because this baby is a trompe l’oeil extravaganza!! Pretty much everywhere you turn, there’s a faux-painted mural or surface of some kind, and the vibe feels vaguely “Renaissance Fair.” Or at least that’s what I see. What about you? 909 Shandra has 3 bedrooms & 3 baths in 1550sf. It’s listed by Kaye Roberts, RE/MAX Gold, for $245,000.

If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you any of these unique properties, give me a call. I’m also available to assist sellers! Inventory & interest rates are down so it’s a wonderful time to list!!
