TOWN & COUNTRY

Edited by CHRISTINE SOUCY AND CATHERINE ROLWES

CITY OF ST. LOUIS, MO Benton Park. Designated

as a sustainable neighborhood in 2004, Benton Park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005. Most homes date back to the late 19th century, many with the original moldings, stained glass and fixtures intact. Century-old trees shade streets, and residents tend to maintain meticulous porches, lawns and gardens. Central West End. The Central West End is

right across from Forest Park, caddy-corner to Washington University and five minutes from downtown. However, most residents find few reasons to leave the neighborhood. The business district’s cobblestone streets are dense with restaurants, stores and galleries. Not far from the Central West End’s business district, you will find gated streets lined with turn-of-the-century mansions and larger historic homes. The area also includes high-rise apartments, condominiums, and luxury apartments.

Dogtown. Just south of Forest Park and the

Saint Louis Zoo is a neighborhood affectionately known as “Dogtown.” This lively, tree-lined neighborhood consists of smaller, older homes, apartments and local restaurants and bars; it also boasts a front-row view of the St. Patrick’s Day parade route during the city’s popular Irish celebration. The Hill. Settled in the late 19th century by immigrants from northern Italy and Sicily, this well-established neighborhood embraces its heritage. The Hill boasts meticulously maintained homes, locally renowned Italian-American restaurants, bakeries, delis and specialty grocers. Holly Hills. Established in the 1920s, Holly

Hills is a charming neighborhood located in South St. Louis near the intersection of I-55 and Loughborough Avenue. Both single-family and multi-family homes, from brick mansions to bungalows, anchor the tree-lined streets. The neighborhood boasts excellent schools, churches and the third largest park in the city of St. Louis, Carondelet Park.

Lafayette Square. Named after a Revolutionary War hero, Lafayette Square is all about history, from streets lined with Victorian “painted ladies” to 30-acre Lafayette Park, not only the oldest park in the city, but also the first park west of the Missouri River. Located southwest of downtown, Lafayette Square has a fine collection of bars and restaurants, including SqWires Restaurant and Market, Bailey’s Chocolate Bar and Square One Brewery. In addition to Victorian mansions, you will find luxury apartments, lofts and condominiums.

Downtown St. Louis. Thanks to an urban

renewal project, downtown St. Louis is one of the hottest housing tickets in the city! Lofts and apartments range from small rental units to lavish penthouses. Downtown has access to dry cleaning services, hardware and grocery stores, as well as a large selection of fine and casual dining spots. Within walking distance of the lofts and condominiums are famous sports and entertainment venues, as well as historical landmarks. St. Louis Hills. Constructed between 1930 and 1960, most of the homes in St. Louis Hills are brick, but their architectural styles include gingerbread bungalows, larger ranch houses and an eight-sided Art Deco house. Like many St. Louis City neighborhoods, the community is centered around green space — in this case 13acre Francis Park, which hosts a weekly outdoor concert series during the summer months. Shaw Neighborhood. Bordering the west side of this historic neighborhood is the Missouri Botanical Garden, planned and installed by Henry Shaw. Shaw Neighborhood received its historic designation in 1985 and boasts beautiful,

grand homes from the turn of the century and spacious multi-family dwellings within walking distance of the Garden and Tower Grove Park. Today, the neighborhood is filled with bistros, coffee houses, florists and art galleries. Skinker-DeBaliviere. Beautiful, tree-lined streets and historic homes characterize the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood. Its development began during the 1904 World’s Fair. Within walking distance of Forest Park, Washington University and the Delmar “Loop," the area was designated a Local Historic District in 1978. The large single-family homes and expansive apartment buildings, ranging in style from Classic to Tudor Revival to bungalow-style, boast exquisite early 20th-century architectural details in their art glass, millwork and fireplace mantels. Soulard. One of the oldest communities in the city, Soulard is filled with renovated brick rowhouses and breathtaking Vic torian-st yle homes, bars, pubs, restaurants and businesses – many of which are centuries old. Named after Antoine Soulard, the first developer in the neighborhood, the two-block area of land known as Soulard Farmer’s Market was donated by Julia Soulard in 1838 with the stipulation that it remain a public market. Today, the market still remains open all year. Tower Grove. This area actually includes two neighborhoods – Tower Grove South and Tower Grove East. They both surround Tower Grove Park and the Missouri Botanical Garden. Homes in this area range from impressive mansions to quirky, turn-of-the-century flats with pocket doors and fireplaces. Both neighborhoods are demographically mixed, housing residents in historic homes to graduate students. Also of note is South Grand Boulevard, an up-and-coming stretch of ethnic restaurants, hip bars and shops. RELOCATING IN SAINT LOUIS 2013
