Fox Park Featured Neighborhood

Fox Park is a fantastic neighborhood tucked between Tower Grove Park and Lafayette Square. Most home buyers that I meet aren’t really familiar with it. When I drive them through the area, they are impressed with the architecture and the tree-lined streets. They are shocked at its affordability and they immediately open their search criteria to include more than just Shaw and Tower Grove South.

Speaking of affordability, let’s compare value. The magic formula these days is a 3 bed and 2.5 bath home that includes a master suite. In Fox Park, 2650 Armand is available and is listed at $179,900. Recently renovated, this home includes updated systems and a new(er) roof. The kitchen features a HUGE center-island with granite top and a MASTER SUITE

In Tower Grove South you can find something with 3 beds and 2.5 baths starting at $250,000. However to find a home with a kitchen as desirable or a master bath as luxurious, you would need to pay $150,000-$200,000 more. (See screenshot of sold values in TGS below). To put this in perspective, by living a couple blocks further from Tower Grove Park, you can save at minimum $100,000 !$!$!$!$!

As Fox Park takes off there are more and more restaurants calling the neighborhood home. The Purple Martin just went in at the corner of Shenandoah and California. Kakao Chocolate is at the corner of Shenandoah and Jefferson. Van Goghz Marini Bar and Bistro is at the corner of Shenandoah and Compton.

Fox Park itself has one of the best playgrounds of any city neighborhood. The neighborhood has its own “Farm” on Russell Blvd. The home-owners in Fox Park are involved and friendly. Don’t believe me? Check out this FB thread
