UPDATE: c.1883 Move-In Ready Brick Shotgun House in St. Louis Missouri Reduced to $15K ~ Sold

4403 Cottage Ave, Saint Louis, MO 63113   

$18,200 Reduced to $15K ~ Sold 

OHU50K NOTES

We just showcased this one a week or so ago, and the move-in ready home is already reduced.

The brick shotgun house is located in The Ville Neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri. The owners of this home appear to be one of the last holdouts to remain in the high crime area. It is such a shame, because The Ville was once a lovely neighborhood of the city’s black middle class. While Cottage Avenue has well-maintained homes like this one, the street is also pockmarked by vacant lots. Crumbling homes and other conditions vary widely from block to block.

If only we could transplant the house. Its exterior boasts a brick facade with curb appeal. The interior’s original front door and lighting fixture, hardwood floors, pocket doors, fireplace, and clawfoot tub leave one with a sense of sadness that they will may likely eventually become dust as so many of the homes on this block have done.
