The Grove is hot. How hot? We may be about to find out. On the market now is a fairly large, fairly minimalist, single-family home on Chouteau Avenue. We posted an image of the home not yet completed last week with the caption, “21st C St. Louis historic-ish vernacular architecture”.
The neighborhood is a great place to live, no doubt, and eat and drink, and work. New construction is selling for prices residents couldn’t have guessed just a few years ago. UIC recently sold three new contemporary homes on Gibson Avenue, with sale prices toping $400,000. Other new construction has sat on the market for months, though 4448 Chouteau now shows a sale price of $398,000 per city records.
