A Trip Around Lafayette Square

SOLD! Congrats to Our Clients at 2022 Hickory

The house at 2022 Hickory was a special one to our team. On a quiet street, its double lot had a sweet patio and gardens. The house was brimming with natural light and just felt peaceful. The sellers had put a lot of love and care into it over the years, and it was obvious the house was loved. But they decided they wanted to spend their retirement years travelling. (Yes, we’re envious!) Besides totally endearing clients and everything the actual home had going for it, the location in Lafayette Square meant proximity to restaurants, coffee houses, and of course, the park.

Lafayette Square Park is home to a fantastic summer concert series and movies in the park series. Gorgeous any time of the year, it is especially lovely in summer. The Saint Louis Perfectos call Lafayette Square Park there home field. They are a baseball club that plays by the rules and customs of the 1860’s. Watching Vintage baseball in Lafayette Square is a special experience.



Having a listing so close to Clementine’s Naughty & Nice Creamery, was a treat too. (I’m a personal fan of the Olive Oil & Lemon Verbena.)  Gooey Butter Cake, made with lots of Park Avenue Coffee’s cake, is the most popular flavor at this handcrafted, all-natural, small batch ice cream shop. Planter’s House is just a three minute walk from 2022 Hickory. They serve impressive hand-crafted cocktails from the cozy interior or the incredible patio. Other notable eateries include Bailey’s Chocolate Bar, Eleven Eleven Mississippi, and SqWires. You can read about these and more at Lafayette Square: The Food Lover’s Guide to One of St. Louis’ Tastiest ‘Hoods.


The Lafayette Square Website is an incredible resource that covers not just the rich history of the community, but has an event calendar and links to various groups and committees dedicated to preservation, conservation, commerce, and the arts in Lafayette Square.

We can help you sell  your Lafayette Square home or we can  help you find a home in this hot area. We just helped a young couple purchase an historic home with a personal-sized swimming pool AND it was across the street from Clementine’s. It doesn’t get much better than that! Contact us if you are looking to buy or sell in Lafayette Square. We know the neighborhood and love working in it.
