114-Year-Old Boarded Up Barth’s Estate in Maryland Heights, Missouri | $1.5M
211 Midland Avenue, Maryland Heights, Missouri, United States, 63043
A mostly boarded up and empty limestone mansion in Maryland Heights, Missouri is looking for a buyer with ambitious plans. The nearly 7,000 square foot residence has remained empty for a period of time and the entire first floor sits boarded up. Despite its somewhat abandoned state, the 114-year-old mansion retains many original period details and presents a fantastic opportunity to be restored back into a grand old mansion or to explore new commercial ventures. It was designed by Barnett, Haynes & Barnett and built c.1905 for John L. Miers. It’s made of hand-cut Missouri limestone and topped with a striking tile roof. The current owner has updated the broad wraparound porch as well as all of the windows and installed 400 amp service. The interiors include a dramatic staircase, five fireplaces, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a third level and basement level for additional usage. We found a document dated September 3, 2015 requesting to rezone the R-5 Single Family Residential District to MXD Mixed Use District with plans to establish a banquet facility as well as other uses in the existing structure. The property has previously been used for various ventures including the Normandy Athletic Club. It’s on the market for $1,500,000 with Re/Max Platinum.
