3670 Flora Place

This 4,406 square foot historic Georgian home sits in the heart of Historic Shaw, a neighborhood named for Henry Shaw, the founder of the Missouri Botanical Garden. Shaw’s Flora Boulevard subdivision, popularly known as Flora Place, was platted in 1901 and within a few years was lined with fine houses. 3670 Flora Place, built in 1907, is one such example. The home has been lovingly restored and in addition to the 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, it boasts 2 family room areas and a professionally landscaped backyard with an outdoor fireplace and two car garage. The home is just a 10 minute walk to Tower Grove Park.
