Why Susan Holeman chose Lafayette Square

I love older homes and this house has so much character, is nestled in St. Louis' premier historic neighborhood, sits on a quiet street, and is close to downtown.

What makes this house unique

Relaxing backyard deck....convenient location...quiet... comfortable...nicely furnished.

Birthday weekend in St. Louis!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved the property for my husband's surprise 30th birthday weekend with a few friends and family. Susan was great! She met us at the house when we arrived, gave us a walkthrough, and gave us some history on the house. The house is very cool and was well-suited for our needs! There is also a nice view of the arch from the third floor. It's just a short drive to Anheuser-Busch, we walked to the Cardinals game, and we walked to the local restaurants. All-in-all, we had a great time! Thank you!

Great house in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

House had plenty of room for 5 people. We enjoyed the upstairs entertainment room. We were able to get to the downtown area on foot because of how close we where. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful house in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

This house had everything we needed. Was a vacation to the SEC basketball tournament with five guys. Everyone had space. The entertainment room was a highlight also. Was close to every place we wanted to go. Would definitely book again.

Had a great weekend, will stay again

  • 5 of 5

The house is incredible and we had a fantastic time. Susan was beyond accommodating and the house more than lived up to the pictures. The location was great; a ton of street parking, $5 Ubers pretty much anywhere downtown and Soulard.

What a lovely historic home! Lafayette Square it’ a beautiful area five minute drive from Downtown

  • 4 of 5

Susan greeted us and gave us a tour of this beautiful historic home. My family of four had plenty of space to spread around. The kitchen was fully appointed and we cooked a couple of meals during our stay. The wood burning fireplace was enjoyable. And when traveling with teens a washer dryer is a must. Thank you Susan
