Fresh Picks: Modern, Rustic & Uniquely Blessed

Mmmm, now here’s a house I wish I could pick up and move! This 1958 MCM is located in Salem MO, about 30 minutes south of Rolla, and I’d say it has the Frank Lloyd Wright vibe down pat! What about you? 800 East 10th – 2+3, 2506sf, listed by Babette Wells, United Country Realty, for $184,500

Welcome to #7 Ladue Ridge!

Speaking of mid-century modern, this 1953 Ladue ranch is also pretty swell inside. Love the porthole window in the hall bath, and of course the dramatic living room! 7 Ladue Ridge – 3+2.5, 2329sf, listed by Dede Dooley Noldge, Avenue Real Estate, for $399,900


I really wish this quirky 1950 ranch was not a slab, but the wide open layout and modern shed/studio out back are helping me to forget! The sweet location just minutes to Clayton doesn’t hurt either. 830 Wild Cherry – 2+1.5, 1512sf, listed by David Stewart, Hermann London Group, for $169,000

Front and 2 car garage view of 1566 Old State Rd.

When I first saw this Wildwood home, I thought it was an old mill of some kind. But then I took a closer look and realized nope, it’s just another late 70s rustic contemporary capturing my heart! The interior here is a clean, blank slate just waiting to be enlivened, and the 3-acre wooded setting could not be more gorgeous! 1566 Old State Rd – 3+2, 1344sf, listed by Rick Bach, Real Living Gateway, for $249,900


Put this one in the “dare to dream” column. It’s a 1965 contemporary in the heart of Ladue, and I have to say every darn inch is just sublime! Bravo, Isadore Shank! 250 Dielman – 3+3.5, 2988sf, listed by Jill Malley, Laura McCarthy, for $825,000


Finally, here’s a special property for those who want something truly different, and HUGE! It’s a 1957 former convent in Tower Grove South, now transformed into a massive single-family home with fabulous vintage character and your very own chapel! Just imagine what you could do with all this space! There’s even a fenced yard! 4161 Humphrey – 8+4, 4332sf, listed by Tari Brown, RE/MAX Results, for $325,000

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