188 Green Briar Court was built in 1962 and in the convenient and charming Willow Brook subdivision just north of Olive and west of Lindbergh. It is in unincorporated St. Louis and in the Pattonville School District, but is closest to Creve Coeur and Olivette in terms of amenities. The home sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and is surrounded by many mid-century homes. It has lovely curb appeal and the fenced, terraced, and manicured pie-shaped lot with low maintenance plantings is a gardener’s dream.
Inside the home has an open living/dining room with vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows common to mid-century design. From this welcoming and airy space, you circle to the rear of the home to find a U-shaped kitchen with 42″ cherry cabinets that have roll-out shelving. There is plenty of counter space and cabinet storage. The kitchen opens to an informal dining area. This east facing space is enchanting in the morning light.
The main level hosts three bedrooms each with hardwoods under carpet and two closets each. The newly painted hall bath is a show stopper, plus the large master bedroom features its own private bath. Two additional closets are in the hallway. There is no shortage of storage in this home!
The partially finished lower level is where all the fun happens. The family room has a wood burning fireplace with raised hearth and French doors that open to a delightful patio. Two additional (legal) bedrooms with full light (east facing) and another full bath make this space great for teenagers, in-laws, or snoring spouses. Current owners used the downstairs bedrooms as a home gym and a craft room – so there is a lot of flexibility. Laundry and tons of storage complete the lower level and an attached two-car garage completes the package. It is listed at
