Property description

Welcome to beautiful LaFayette Square … If this is your first time here, you are in for a treat! The area has a rich history dating back to the mid-1800’s; this wonderful historic home was built in 1880 in the Victorian style. You will enjoy the old-world architecture with the classic two parlors separated by pocket doors, a beautiful formal dining room, and the two staircases, one in front along with the back spiral staircase by the kitchen. The home is within easy walking distance to many outstanding restaurants, specialty shops, and the oh-so-beautiful and historic Lafayette Park. There is so much to enjoy within walking distance, but don’t miss out on the other treasures of St Louis – The Gateway Arch, Busch Stadium, the Missouri Botanical Garden, Fox Theatre, Powell Symphony Hall, St. Louis Art Museum, Forest Park, the St Louis Zoo, and so much more, all within a 10-15 minute drive from this home. Enjoy cocktails on the top-floor deck overlooking the city before enjoying a sumptuous night on the town in Lafayette Square, then return home to the luxurious three bedrooms on the second floor. Longing for a night in? Enjoy our fully stocked kitchen to create a delicious feast, to be savored in the luxurious formal dining room. The pantry is stocked with staples and spices to make your stay extra welcome. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall… each season offers a unique charm that will make your stay captivating and memorable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: Our Father, Joe Fitzgerald, purchased the home in 1979, shortly after it was renovated as part of a focused effort to resurrect the beauty of the neighborhood that had fallen into disrepair. Dad was a twenty year military man, with multiple degrees in psychology, engineering and business, and who spoke three languages. He passed away in November, 2012, just a few weeks short of his 80th birthday. We decorated his home to honor its history while preserving Dad’s personality and his rich life experiences. Our Father deeply loved this home and often said, “I feel more like a steward than an owner of this home. It is my job to preserve it for generations to come.” We were blessed to inherit this home from our Father and we feel the same sense of responsibility. We are happy to share this treasure with others to enjoy as we have. Cynthia and Rachel (Joe's Daughters)

Why the Owner Chose Lafayette Square, Saint Louis, MO, USA:
This home is a true treasure that was built in the late 1800's. If you enjoy a taste of the historic in a walking neighborhood with excellent restaurants and a magnificent park, this home is for you.
