4509 & 4515 Chouteau Ave., St. Louis, MO 63110

It’s not often you find two side-by-side 4-families for sale, but it’s even more uncommon for them to be located in such a stellar location. Sitting right off of the northwest corner of Chouteau and Taylor, these 8 units are located in the Grove just across the bridge from the amazing Cortex Innovation Community and only a few buildings away from Home2 Suites by Hilton. Just down the block is the Aventura at Forest Park apartments, which has 1-bed’s starting from $1295 and 2-bed’s from $1650.

These buildings are currently fully-occupied with rents ranging from $550 to $636. Each unit has the same4-room layout with a private bedroom in the rear and one bath.  The current layout makes for a very spacious 1-bed, but with a renovation, these units could easily be converted to 2-beds with private beds in the front and rear of each unit.

The returns, as things stand, are modest but with a rehab, fetching rents of $1,200 a month or higher should be easy. This would make a great long-term addition to any rental portfolio if you are willing and able to get the buildings renovated and running up to peak efficiency.

Seller willing to split the buildings under the right circumstances, but prefers to sell as a package.

Don’t let the 2 bedroom listing fool you… there’s a lot more living space here than meets the eye!

The current owners have lovingly maintained this property and their pride of ownership shows (newer roof, well manicured lawn, new furnace (2017) and the list goes on!).

Don’t miss your chance to call this beauty your new home!

3656 Marceline Terrace, St. Louis, MO 63116

Is this a duplex or a work of art? With stained glass windows, intricate tile work, tons of decorative brick and even the plaster having decorative flair, original wood floors and trim, it’s hard to tell. The original builder of this 2-family took supreme care into its design and it shows still today. Both units have central air, 2 spacious bedrooms, an eat-in kitchen with dishwasher, an enclosed sunroom off the rear bedroom. The first floor has 8 small stained glass panes throughout the unit. On the second floor there are 9 small stained glass panes and two oversized ones. In the basement, there are plenty of storage and laundry, but the standout feature is the custom-built bar and wood-lined gathering room in the basement. Outside, the new roof (2015), meticulous landscaping in the back yard and two car garage are great additions as well. The building borders St. Mary’s High School in the rear and the views and alley access to the garage are ideal. This building would be an excellent owner-occupant option as both the 2nd floor and garage are vacant so you can move right in and break in that bar for the New Year!

A huge, 3,304 sq ft duplex just half a block from Tower Grove Park is an opportunity you can’t ignore. Both units have beautiful original trimwork, pocket doors and 3 ornate nonfunctional fireplaces all still intact. The lower level unit is a very specious two bedroom unit, with bonus room. There is also a large area finished in the basement that has an additional living room, bedroom and bathroom, which was used by the tenant of this unit.

On the upper unit, there are two bedrooms and two bonus rooms on the second floor, and two additional bedrooms on the third floor. This unit is truly huge. The building does need work, but would be an amazing choice for an owner occupant duplex or single family conversion, sitting in the shadow of the park.

Be part of the exciting new commercial district forming at the intersection of Gravois & Jefferson. Located in the Fox Park Neighborhood of St. Louis, this space is truly a unique opportunity. The front area was originally a feed supply store in the 1800’s and was designed to drive horse-drawn carriages through the building for loading up supplies. The original area up front is approximately 1,810 SqFt with 13-foot tall ceilings. In the back, a large warehouse (with a loading dock) was built on directly the original structure and is approximately 2,350 SqFt with 12″ tall ceilings. In total, there is 4,160 SqFt of space with an open layout able to accommodate just about any kind of business.

The unit is currently in the process of being fully cleaned out, but will soon be available in white-box condition. The space is best suited for a restaurant, microbrewery, or craftsman’s shop, but could be used for almost anything. Asking $1,500 a month for white-box condition (exact amount depending on terms and build-outs) and a minimum of a 2-year lease. This is your chance to be part of the rebirth of this commercial corridor in historic Fox Park.
