4141 Chouteau 1

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.

    Does anyone else find it weird that the door from the garage to the house/yard is a garage door?

    Also agree that the exterior is just plain awful. Hopefully whoever buys it finds a creative way to make it less plain and more interesting.

  • Paul Hohmann

    Who is the builder/developer? Obviously they didn’t bother to hire an architect. Then again 4448 is pretty goofy looking as well. Nice to see these sale prices though!

      Right? The facade is hideous…

  • gmichaud

    Have to agree the facade and front porch need some design work. For 400 grand I would think the rear of the home would be brick also. Vinyl doesn’t seem to age well. The straightforward open space of the interior is nice. So what is it, about 2000 sq ft with a finished basement?

  • CWE1959

    Certainly good to see infill. I’m not a fan of this structure as it looks cheap and ill designed. The small window on the second level to the left looks horrible. In many instances UIC has built contemporary structures with appropriate finishes (trim, cabinetry, exterior siding, etc.). This example of new construction has oddly proportioned windows and a cheap looking front porch. The composite and spindles used look more appropriate for a rear deck. Additionally, painting the concrete facing of the front porch does little to disguise that the porch was an afterthought without an esthetically pleasing façade. I’m interested to see what the resale value of the modern infill homes will be. . . Will these homes appreciate or depreciate as many new construction homes (i.e. Gaslight Square, Botanical Heights, West End Enright/Clemens) of suburban/modern design have depreciated since being built?

    • Douglis Beck

      Just to clarify – none of the homes pictured are by UIC.

      • CWE1959

        Certainly. Not impressed by this failed attempt at aesthetically pleasing modern infill. However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It only takes one qualified buyer to bite.

  • guest

    The front elevation is so wrong…the proportions of the building and windows seems really off. Do not like.

    • Terry

      Agreed, it’s really ugly. Interior is nice though.

  • Don

    very exciting and really nice space. I love that open floor plan. Let’s see at what price a sale closes.

  • Jason Stokes

    I’d certainly be tempted. I’d rather spend a bit more and get rid of that horrendous vinyl, but I like it.

  • Kitty

    Wow! $400k?? It almost seems like a systematic and intentional push to drive up property values, forcing low-income renters from the area, especially south of Manchester, so their buildings can be bought and rehabbed/demo’d for infill…but that’s just me being an armchair conspiracy theorist/naysayer. It’s really exciting to finally see historic infill and redevelopment done right in this city (I’m not impressed by this particular example but at least it respects the infill development pattern), but at what cost? If people are forced from their homes by rent hikes, where can they go?

    • rgbose

      Is there a way to fill empty lots without driving up rents at nearby properties?

      • Don

        Find a generous millionaire willing to build these homes and sacrifice maximum profits in the process. The problem is that you can’t defeat the market. If the developer were willing to sell this house for $250k with a market value of $400k, we all know what the first buyer is going to do.

    • grove

      as a landlord for 15 years south of manchester no one is being forced most of my tenants have been with me for years they only leave if they buy i think higher rents on vacant rehab is healthy for the neighborhood and provides a more diverse environment by the way i live here myself and as like most people that live here we welcome improvement and more density

      • John R

        Your situation aside, there is no doubt that what is going on in FPSE is not entirely benign. Whether any of it is “intentional” or not, I do not know, but the rapid outflow of african-americans from the neighborhood is startling.
