4141 Chouteau: New Home In The Grove

4141-Chouteau-11-e1462482041653

NEW CONSTRUCTION in STL’s HOTTEST community–The Grove! Walking distance from Urban Chestnut Brewing, Handlebar, Atomic Cowboy, Rise Coffee & more. This house couldn’t get any hipper unless it grew a beard + started drinking out of Mason jars. Built in 2016, you’ll love the perks of living in a new house. Fantastically open main level floor plan combines the large living room, dining area + knock-out kitchen with island + breakfast bar. Walk out the back deck to the fenced yard + new 2-car garage. Upstairs you’ll find a spa-tastic master suite with large light-filled bedroom, huge walk-in closet & gorgeous bath with jacuzzi tub + custom shower. Two more bedrooms, second bath, laundry + a sitting area, too. Downstairs, check out the professionally finished lower level with HUGE family room, 4th bedroom (with proper egress window) & third full bath–perfect for out-of-town guests who like to stay awhile. Whole-house surround sound, zoned HVAC–come & get it–this one’s the total package!

It was listed for $395,00 but was recently reduced to $385,000. Listed by Jenifer E Garcia, Garcia Properties 314-565-3583.

I love the interior and that the exterior is brick. The window placement is a bit odd…though it is good to be different…that is what The Grove is all about.

It is exciting to see new construction in The Grove….I feel it is going to become a walkable haven.  The Grove used to be just bars…now there is a coffee shop, barber shop & more!

Early adopters need to be a little brave and realize that it will take time for the neighborhood to become more consistent….though it will happen!

This is the empty lot where the home now stands (Images from ~April 2015). As you can see the building to the left isn’t in great shape, and the one to the right isn’t so pretty either.

The building to the left (4145 Chouteau) appears to have been purchased by Preservation Group LLC in early 2014 via a sheriffs deed. Preservation Group LLC (or Preservation Group II (& III)) is owned by Grove developer Austin Barzantny, who has been working in this area for some time. I would expect that because of who owns it, the building will get redeveloped or a new home will take its place.
