A new single family home will soon be constructed in the St. Louis Hills Estates subdivision of the St. Louis Hills neighborhood. The address is 6474 Kinsey Place. The permit amount is $300,000. The builder is McKelvey Homes.
A small ranch-style home was torn down earlier this year to make way for this new, larger house. Demolitions are extremely rare in St. Louis Hills, making this teardown a significant change to this otherwise quiet, proto-suburban enclave of the City. St. Louis Hills Estates was one of the last large development sites left in the City of St. Louis corporate limits after World War II. It is one of the only places within city limits that one can find a large concentration of ranch-style homes.
Below is a rendering of the new home from a sign posted at the construction site.
