Imagine an enchanting walkable neighbourhood, where tree-lined streets lead to restaurants and shopping – and the oldest park in Saint Louis is just steps from your front door. That’s exactly what’s being offered with 1525 Missouri Avenue! The historic red brick Richardsonian Romanesque mansion with striking corner turret and original carriage house was built c.1893 on a 7,754 square foot corner lot facing the historic 30 acre Lafayette Park. The neighbourhood is one of the oldest in Saint Louis and when developed was one of the most fashionable places to live. Many of the homes have been restored to their former glory, including this fabulous four-storey mansion. Plenty of space to entertain, the floor plan includes large living room with bay window, library, formal dining room, private screened porch, a sun-filled kitchen and an immense amount of original features. Marvel at original woodwork, moulding and light fixtures and have peace of mind with updated plumbing, electrical and three zones of air conditioning. There are also ten fireplaces and lovely stained glass throughout. There are a total of seven bedrooms, five full and one half bathrooms, as well as the carriage house with two bedroom apartment and two-car tandem parking. Nearly a year and a half ago, the 6,675 square foot mansion was on the market for an ambitious $995,000. It’s since been reduced and can now be yours for $799,000.
