New Listing for Sale in Tower Grove East

New Listings Feb 2008


There are so many things I like about this new listing. First is the price. For $154,900, you get gorgeous finishes with quality system updates. Between October of 2005 and March of 2006, this home was taken down to the studs and rebuilt with new wiring, new plumbing and new HVAC system. New wood floors were installed on the first floor and the original wood was sanded and refinished upstairs. The kitchen has 42″maple-stained cabinets and stainless appliances and the bathroom was completely gutted and finished with ceramic tile and new fixtures.

There are tons of renovations in the city. Many are so similar that they just blend together. This one, while being neutral, still has many significant details that set it apart from others.

The first and most obvious is the street. This boulevard street, with the berms in the middle and the full grown trees, offers a park-like setting.


The deep porch runs the width of the front offering plenty of room to sit outside, chat with neighbors and enjoy the fresh air.


Once inside the floor plan is open and inviting. With warm tile and chocolate accent wall the fireplace is designer’s focal point.


The dining room features beamed ceilings with accent lights built into the corners. Chandelier and lights are both on dimmers allowing diners to set a romantic ambiance.


The kitchen features built-in white shelves. The shelves were conversion from an old interior/exterior ice-box that once allowed the milkman access for delivery of dairy products.


Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The master is large and has two walk-in closets, one on each side of the room.


Additional features to note when touring this home: top down bottom up shades on all (but one) windows. Historic windows on the front of the home and new thermal windows on the back. Oversized closet in 2nd bedroom. Cut-out above shower to provide extra light in bathroom and large linen closet, 2-story deck at rear exist and concrete patio.
