This amazing home on The Hill is featured in the LIFT Showcase of homes. This home has a partially finished lower level with a full bath and kitchenette. It is perfect for in-law quarters or the grown child you just cannot get to leave the nest.
Bigger than it appears, this home is full of vintage charm, including the original 1948 Maytag oven, and coveted farmhouse drainboard sink! If you are a fan of the popular Retro Renovation website, you will love this home, with its unique tile work in the kitchen and the bathrooms. The first floor has 9 foot ceilings, custom archways, bay windows, and a wood burning fireplace. The lower level has a large FAMILY ROOM with vintage knotty pine and private office. A large, insulated attic offers opportunity to expand. Out back is a quaint yard and HUGE garage.
The Hill is consistently recognized as one of the best places to live in St. Louis, and for good reason. Renowned for its Italian-American history, the highly walkable area is packed with nationally recognized restaurants, markets, and shops. Mario Batali considers The Hill to be one of the country’s top “Little Italy” neighborhoods. Not only will you find a 90+ year old bakery, three Italian markets, two bocce gardens, and a gelateria, but shops like Skif Fashions and Herbaria Soaps lend a contemporary vibe that help the neighborhood continue to thrive.
The brick bungalow faces Sublette Park, host of the popular annual Fireworks display. Urzi’s Italian Market is less than 5 minute walk, and right next door you can pick up a famous thin crust pizza at Lou Boccardi’s. If you aren’t familiar with all the restaurant choices on The Hill, consider taking a Taste of The Hill Food Tour.
