"I didn't realize there was a neighborhood back there!"
That's the most common comment that I get when showing homes to prospective buyers in the Ginger Creek neighborhood of Glen Carbon, Illinois. The entrance to the popular subdivision is filled with professional office buildings that house medical offices and associations. Behind those offices, the residential part of Ginger Creek is tucked away in its own, quiet world.
You'll know you've reached Ginger Creek when you see the charming red mill and water wheel pictured to the right.
Located off of IL-157, Ginger Creek is close to everything. Less than a mile from the Edwardsville High School, it's also a close drive to I-270, I-255 and the highways and byways of Madison County. If you commute to work in the county or to the west side of the Mississippi in St. Louis City or County, Ginger Creek is a convenient place to call home. Downtown St. Louis is a 25 minute drive with no traffic hassles.
The Ginger Creek subdivision has set aside many acres of common land for the use of the neighborhood's residents. Neighbors routinely see deer, foxes, hawks, egrets, turkeys and other assorted wildlife taking advantage of the undeveloped acreage and mature woods too. Ginger Creek's lake is filled with fish that bite for the neighborhood's younger residents.
A swimming pool, clubhouse and tennis courts -- available to residents and their accompanied guests --provide plenty of recreational opportunities.
Currently there are three Ginger Creek residences on the market. A 2,800-square-foot new construction villa with four bedrooms listed for $318,000; a 1,900-square-foot, three-bedroom uniplex for $165,000; and a four-bedroom, single-family home for $199,900.

The neighborhood's homes include executive residences that sell for more than a half million dollars to adorable townhouses that list in the low $100,000 range. Some are updated and move-in ready resale homes. Others are quality new construction. Some homes are waiting for a smart buyer with a handy streak who can add newer touches to increase its appeal.
