Grab Bag: A Modernist Gem & 5 Other Finds

June 9, 2015 , In: Residential Properties , With: No Comments


Major MCM Alert!!! Here’s your chance to own a true St. Louis County landmark! Built in 1942 for Dr. Evarts Graham, this stunning modernist home was designed by renowned architect Harris Armstrong. It sits on a gorgeous bluff overlooking the Missouri River and includes 5000+ square feet and nearly 5 acres of land, also direct river access. If you’re a fan of mid-century architecture, don’t miss this rare find! It just hit the market today! 18 Jamestown Acres is listed by David Pope, Pope Realty, for $449,500. 


More modest in scale but still a mid-century beauty, this 1957 ranch is a Florissant classic! It’s located in a nice, quiet neighborhood and features a perfect mix of old and and new: updated kitchen & systems but still lots of vintage character. Also a secret staircase! 1505 St. Denis has 3 bedrooms & 3 baths in 1316sf. It’s listed by me for $129,900.


Even if you have zero interest in owning a duplex in Affton, make sure you check out these pics. The exterior on this 1939 bungalow is a work of art! I just wish I knew more about it! Who did it & when?? 4840 Oldenburg has 4 bedrooms & 2 baths in 1867sf. It’s listed by Donna Flam, Real Living Gateway, for $129,999. 


Here’s one you’ll either love or hate. Built in 1930, this Dogtown home got a dramatic paint treatment on the main floor, making it look like oxidized iron. From the photos it seems kinda cool, but I’m guessing you really need to see it in person. What do you say? Thumbs up? 6448 Lloyd has 3 bedrooms & 1.5 baths in 1276sf. It’s listed by Ann Friend, A. Friend Company, for $185,000.


As you might expect, the bargain hunters have descended on Ferguson recently, looking to scoop up neat old houses for cheap. Here’s one that certainly fits the bill: a big ol’ 1888 Victorian. It needs some TLC & fresh paint, but the neighborhood is very nice and the price is hard to pass up. Where else can you get 2100sf and a half-acre lot for $50,000?! 9 Thoroughman is listed by Deborah Kiper, RE/MAX, via HUD.

705 Plantmore

Speaking of Ferguson bargains, here’s another one. It’s a 1956 ranch on a sweet little street (next to Paul’s Market) where every house has a huge lot. This one sits on nearly an acre and offers loads of space and style for the money. 705 Plantmore has 4 bedrooms & 2 baths in 2100sf. It’s listed by Pearce Neikirk for $86,500.

If you’d like more info on any of these unique homes, let me know!
