“A house flip story that we love: Ginger restores a St. Louis time capsule to move-in ready condition — ala 1960”
“The home was built in 1960, and the land has been owned by the same family (until it was bought this year by the new owner) since the 30’s. The previous farmhouse was torn down in 1959 to make room for a new “state of the art” modern home. At one time they owned all the land around it and operated it as a farm up until the 1980s, when they sold off most of it for a new development behind the property. They still worked the land and sold their produce at the Soulard Market in downtown St. Louis. Rumor has it that they had German POW’s work the land from time to time during WWII in the 40s!” said Ginger Fawcett, a St. Louis-area realtor and on of the original board members for ModernSTL.
