Carondelet area has long been a community within South St. Louis area highly rated for people who enjoy city living, with the inviting atmosphere that suburban communities garner. So much so, this area has their own website. Go to http://www.carondeletliving.com/, for more information. As any area, especially in the city limits of St. Louis, there will be incidences of crime. There's another website that I use called crimereports.com, there you can click on advanced search and see a specific 30 day span for the last 6 months of any area. This is a beautiful home, let me know if I could be of any more assistance to you. Thanks. Janel Williams-Broker's Corner Realty-314-827-5478.
