A Mid-Century Modern home in West St. Louis County?!
On a drive through my old hood, Manchester, I noticed a "for sale" sign outside of this strikingly modern home. It wasn't just any home. No, it just happened to be the very same one I'd always admired growing up. As a child, my school bus rode by this home every day and I always gave it a longing glance as we went by. It was just so different than the suburban McMansions that sprouted up all around the neighborhood.
Too bad the coffers are dry. So somebody needs to save this mid-century gem before the bulldozers claim another victim...
... and then sell it to me real cheap when I've saved up to buy my mid-mod dream home ;)
You'd be hard-pressed to find such a modern home outside of Ladue or Clayton. They just didn't build them like this around St. Louis.
It looks as if a little elbow grease will be required, but it's a great neighborhood and such a rarity.
