Grab Bag: 2 new MCMs and 4 Fun Finds

July 22, 2015 , In: Residential Properties , With: No Comments


Whether it’s bold colors, relaxing spaces or quirky decor, I love a house that says “FUN!” That’s probably why I’m digging this new listing in Overland. Built in 1920, it may look classic & reserved from the outside. But inside (and around back), wow! Inground pool, party porches, sunroom, retro bathrooms – this one is guaranteed to make you smile! 2512 Sims has 4 bedrooms & 2.5 bathrooms in 1987sf. It sits on a half-acre and is listed by Kelly Hager, Kelly Hager Group, for $200,000. Open Sunday.


Also in the Mid-County area, here’s a rare find. It just came back on the market after a previous deal fell through, and I can count the ways it’s special: 2456 square feet, .43 acre, 2-car garage, and ONE totally separate house in the back! Use it as a studio /office / in-law pad, just know that these don’t come along every day! Especially at this price! 2305 Ashby has 3 bedrooms & 2 baths in the main house, 720sf in the back house. It’s listed by Steph Dacey, STL Real Estate, for $165,000.

Beautiful Federal style home!

When most people think of old houses in St. Charles, they probably think of the Main Street area. But look what we have here! An 1831 Federal-style home on the other side of Highway 70! It’s surrounded by newer houses but has its own 1-acre “island” and is quite private. Can’t wait to find out more about the history! 1323 Moonridge has 4 bedrooms & 1.5 baths in 2304sf. It’s listed by Lisa Murphy, Meyer Real Estate for $224,900.


I’m totally biased because this is my new home turf, but I think the area around Upper Bottom Road and 364 is one of the sweetest in town. Not only is it super convenient to St. Louis County and away from most of the St. Charles traffic, but it also has a lot of older, wooded properties and easy access to the Katy Trail. This 1997 home may not look like much from the outside but it has a huge open living area, a .73-acre lot, a finished basement, a large detached garage and a pool. What a perfect place for entertaining! 322 Blanche has 3 bedrooms & 2.5 baths. It’s listed by Russell Schmidt, Susan Brewer RE, for $239,900. Open Sunday.

9843meadowfernFinally, here’s a DOUBLE Mid-Century Modern alert! This 1962 beauty in Crestwood looks like a ranch but it’s actually multi-level. Could use some cosmetic tweaking but SO much potential here, and it just hit the market today! 9843 Meadowfern has 4 bedrooms & 3 baths in 2339sf. It’s listed by Thomas King, Keller Williams, for $299,900. Open Sunday.


A little bit smaller but also delightful (and also located in Lindbergh Schools), this 1958 MCM hit the market 5 days ago. Fabulous Sunset Hills location and it even has a basement! Grab it while you can! 10261 Julius Northway has 3 bedrooms & 2 baths in 1450sf. It’s listed by Laura Ludwig, Lauralei Properties, for $269,900. Open Sunday.
