Grab Bag: One I’ve Seen + Four I Want to See

August 4, 2015 , In: Field Notes, Residential Properties , With: No Comments


If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind contemporary and you’ve got a sizable budget, don’t miss this brand new listing from my friend David Nguyen of Garcia Properties. Built in 1989, it sits on a wooded half-acre in unincorporated West County, and if you look at the pics I think you’ll agree it has LOADS of personality! Very fun! 620 Wood Fern has 4 bedrooms & 4.5 baths in 3600sf. It’s listed for $660,000.

1318 Shenandoah

I had the privilege of showing this amazing 1890 home in Soulard last week. Built in 1890 by the family that owned Katz Drug Stores, it sits on 3 city lots and features elaborate masonry, beautiful plaster work and an elegant center-hall design that feels like finding a wonderful surprise behind every door you open! This house is nice & old, with a wealth of character, but it’s also updated with a gorgeous kitchen and upstairs bath. Very stylish, and I have to say kinda magical! 1318 Shenandoah has 4 bedrooms & 1.5 baths in 3100sf. It’s listed by Kathy Miller, RE/MAX Gold, for $337,500.


In terms of convenience, this sweet little mid-century subdivision is a sleeper, in my opinion. It may be a bit north for some, but it sits right on Lindbergh and can get you anywhere in the central/west corridor within minutes. Plus, nearly every house is a 50s ranch and nearly every lot is around a half-acre or more. This 1956 beauty happens to be mostly original, including basement rathskeller, but it does back to apartments. Maybe you could find a way to make it work? 5 Grand Circle has 4 bedrooms & 2.5 baths in 1724sf on .459 acre. It’s listed by Sarah Tadlock, Keller Williams, for $159,000.


Here’s another interesting property nearby, with even more land! Just imagine your suburban mini-farm here, where the long, flat yard features a huge garden plot, grape vines and several fruit trees. The house itself could use some cosmetic help, but at least the living space is open & spacious. And the price is right! 10665 Farview has 3 bedrooms & 1 bath in 1350sf on .909 acre. It’s listed by Connie Martin, RE/MAX Platinum, for $125,000. 


OK, who’s ready to drool? This 1958 ranch in Warson Woods went through an MCM-inspired renovation, and the results are…..well, awesome! What a perfect balance of old & new! LOVE it, especially the zen-modern kitchen! 811 Bricken Place has 3 bedrooms & 2.5 baths in 2100sf. It’s listed by Nancy Bloemke-Rohlfing, RE/MAX Results, for $449,900.
