If you’re familiar with the local nonprofit group Trailnet, you know that they’re committed to “walking, bicycling & public transit as a way of life.” If you happen to share that philosophy, please keep reading! I may have found your dream home!
This charming 1940s bungalow is so conveniently located, you could probably live here and not even use a car, or at least not very often. Nearly every basic amenity is a quick walk or bike ride away: grocery store, library, bank, pharmacy, farmers market, microbrewery and more than 20 restaurants. There’s also a bus stop nearby, a paved bike trail that connects to Metrolink & the St. Vincent Greenway, and a fishing lake stocked with rainbow trout!
The lake is only about 400 feet away, which is great because you’ll definitely want to cook your fresh catch in this gorgeous kitchen….
Granite counters, stainless steel, mosaic tile, custom cabinets and a commercial-grade refrigerator…they’re all here!
Also here is a laundry list of other updates: windows, siding, custom awnings, bathroom, deck, landscaping and a sweet little gazebo in a sweet little backyard…
This urban/suburban paradise comes with a newer privacy fence, tidy garden beds, a rain barrel system and a one-of-a-kind corrugated metal dog pen where your pups can chill out in style!
Inside the house is just as thoughtfully done…..the perfect balance of original vintage & fresh modern, with quirky details intact. And some of the rooms are huge!
The living room measures 13 x 21 and the upstairs bedroom/family room/studio is a whopping 18 x 32!
Overall, you get about 1584sf of finished living space. And the price is just… drumroll please…. $79,900!!!
That’s right – $79,900. Which is one heck of a bargain! In fact, I dare you to find a house with this many quality updates & neighborhood amenities and this much square footage, for this low of a price!
So what do you say….chefs, gardeners, trout fishers, dog lovers and/or Trailnet-minded folks? Welcome home to Ferguson??? 🙂
705 N Florissant Rd has 3 bedrooms & 1 bath in 1584sf. It’s listed by the Howard Team and just hit the market a few days ago.
If you’d like to arrange a showing at this house or you need help buying or selling another vintage home (1980s or earlier), let me know!
