A rare opportunity to live on the premiere street in historic Benton Park. Illinois is a cul-de-sac of only nine houses facing into the verdant and lushly planted park. This home has been lovingly maintained over the years with improvements to the major mechanical systems as well as some new windows, a new roof and garage. Minutes from downtown, neighboring Soulard and Tower Grove, it is convenient to all major highways, putting most of the metropolitan area within an easy drive. Built in 1886, this handsome stone and brick house boasts light-filled, well-proportioned rooms. The first floor ceilings are 11 feet, providing a true sense of spaciousness. Many original architectural details are intact: four decorative fireplaces, operable pocket doors, millwork, and stained glass windows. The floor plan adapts comfortably for as many as six bedrooms, or less depending on family room and private office usage. Benton Park is a sought-after urban, yet quiet, vibrant neighborhood.
