Imagine living in a neighborhood that you absolutely love, where you know your neighbors and feel totally safe and can walk down beautiful tree-lined streets to local restaurants and the library and an awesome farmers market. Then imagine what it’s like for pretty much everyone else to say that your entire neighborhood is crap, that it’s value is so low in the local real estate market that even a nice house there is worth less than many new cars.
If you can imagine that, welcome to Old Ferguson West! That’s the National Register historic district where I’ve lived very happily for 13 years (despite the naysayers) and where you’ll find this incredible bargain of a house…
Built in 1927, this cute bungalow is way bigger than it looks from the street, with nearly 1300 square feet of living space on the main floor. It has some nice modern updates but also tons of vintage charm, and the location could not be better!
Harrison Avenue is the first street in the neighborhood, which means it’s within easy walking distance of Cork Wine Bar, Ferguson Brewing Company, Cose Dolci bakery, the Ted Jones Bike Trail, the Ferguson Library, two grocery stores, and the award-winning Ferguson Farmers Market. It’s also just 2.5 miles from UMSL.
There’s a huge family room addition on the back, a walk-out basement with a half bath, a big fenced yard, and a good-sized attic space that could be finished off someday.
I have been in this house. I have numerous friends on this street. I’ll just tell you: $39,900 is a ridiculous steal!
233 Harrison is listed by owner/agent James Manning, STL Real Estate. It has 2 bedrooms & 1.5 baths, and just hit the market today at this price. It used to be $59,900, so grab it while you can!
If you’d like a buyer’s agent to show you this lovely vintage property, which is within walking distance of my home and office, give me a call!
