Description

This property is no longer available to rent or to buy. This description is from September 16, 2021
LUXURY living 2 blocks from Third Degree Glass Factory, Craft Alliance, and Made St Louis. Quality rehab of this architecturally unique home that is in the up-and-coming West End. Easy bike ride to Forest Park, Wash-U, and all that the CWE has to offer.

The moment you walk through the wrought iron custom door you will want to kick off your shoes and say "Honey I'm home!" Open floor plan with an electric fireplace adds romance to any evening. Custom kitchen fit for a queen/king with top-of-the-line appliances, including wine cooler, that are included in the sale. Beautiful new wood floors throughout the main floor. Huge master suite that features a spa-like bathroom, dressing room, and lots of natural light with new wood floors. On the 3rd floor is another large bedroom and bonus room. Large deck for entertaining that leads to a flat backyard. Partially, finished basement is perfect for a media room, office, man-cave, or she-cave.

This is a gut rehab with all new systems.
