Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Alliance in St.Louis' Illinois suburbs 475.122155

St. Louis Street Edwardsville IllinoisWide, tree-lined and dotted with lovely homes, St. Louis Street marches through the heart of Edwardsville, Illinois and into the hearts of most residents of the Land of Goshen.

Buyers often ask us to keep an eye out for properties as they become available on or near this lovely neighborhood.

Here's a link to properties that are currently for sale on or near historic St. Louis Street.

Originally a farm road, the street was renamed Fairgrounds Road when a long-forgotten agricultural fair site was built on the outskirts of town. Later the thoroughfare became known as St. Louis Street.

Edwardsville began seeing the construction of stately homes along the route as early as the 1850s.

Today, the homes along the street reflect popular architectural styles from the Victorian period through more modern times. You'll see Federal, Queen Anne, Dutch Colonial, Greek Revival and Italianate sharing the neighborhood with a Prairie-style home built just after the turn of the 20th century and more contemporary offerings from Tudor Revival to classic suburban ranches.

Just off St. Louis street, buyers will find a wide range of affordable homes on both the north and south sides of the historic street. Those areas are reflected on the above link as well.

I love historic homes and properties especially when they are well maintained and restored to their original luster.
