New Listings Jul 2016

Open House Sunday, July 17 from 1-3pm

Barely two blocks long, McKean Avenue is a quieter street in Tower Grove East, in what is often referred to as “The Wedge”, an area bound by Arsenal to the north, Grand to the west, and Gravois to the east. Our listing at 3517 McKean, nestled in The Wedge, offers outstanding value for this area.


Built in 1907, 3517 McKean is a handsome 2-family conversion offering the livability of new construction, with ample square footage and updated systems all packaged in an historic, desirable and walkable neighborhood! Completely gutted and very thoughtfully renovated, this is not the standard rehab-flip that you see so often in this price range. Decisions were carefully thought out including refurbished pocket doors, coffered ceilings and hardwood floors. The home offers over 2,500 square feet with the main floor featuring living room, dining room, kitchen open to a family room/hearth room and main floor half bath. Upstairs you will find a large master suite with private full bath and walk-in closet. Three additional large bedrooms, full bath, and side-by-side laundry complete this floor. The partially finished basement makes a great rec room and also includes a half bath. Outside there’s a private fenced, landscaped yard and two car garage. With no large buildings to the west of the home, there is an abundance of natural light that pours into the home.

“We’ve loved the open floor plan and the big kitchen facing into the family room has been a favorite feature. It’s been a wonderful home for entertaining, both inside and out. The day we moved in we started meeting our neighbors. They really made us feel welcome and part of the community.”

The owners are relocating out of state for a work promotion, ending their happy chapter on McKean.

This much square footage in this condition at $269,900 makes this home a tremendous value. See for yourself all that this home and neighborhood has to offer at the Open House this Sunday, July 17, from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Consider starting your next chapter on 3517 McKean.
