In 2020 we sold a home in the Carondelet private gated community conveniently located right off South Broadway. Because it once existed as an independent village, the neighborhood contains some of the oldest homes in St. Louis. You may not be familiar with this pocket of St. Louis. While the idyllic location allows for maximum relaxation, there are plenty of amenities nearby or just a straight shot down S. Broadway.
