About Steve & Terry Cacciatore
Steve and I grew up in St Louis and love our city. We have a carpentry business and have gutted and rehabbed this apartment, which is attached to our own home where we converted a duplex to a single family. My husband Steve grew up on 'The HIll' our cities historic Italian neighborhood and attended St Louis U High, and SIUE where he went to college on a full soccer scholarship, and at 63 still plays the game! I have a yoga teaching certification and help in the carpentry business as well as run the vacation rentals. We have 6 grown children between us and a total of 6 grandchildren! We love to spend our Friday nights cooking and sharing wine with friends and family. My husband is an amazing cook and an avid fisherman. We love to play Pickle ball, ride our bikes around the city, and play in a bocce league 8 months of the year, at our favorite neighborhood pub. When we retire we plan to travel the US!
Why Steve & Terry Cacciatore chose Southwest Garden
Our carpentry company bought this property in 2008 to tear down and build new town homes overlooking Sublette park, but the economy had other ideas. In 2010 we adjusted our vision and began a long, (still in progress) rehabilitation of the buildings, which at the time were 2 sets of attached duplexes. We gutted both buildings and spent weekends rebuilding the interiors, converting the large units into our single family home. Buy 2012 we were moved in and then started the same process on the 2 smaller apartment units. The transformation has been an amazing process and we wouldn't live anywhere else!
What makes this Apartment unique
St Louis was settled by the French, and Missouri had an amazingly prolific clay mines. As a result the city is littered with gorgeous, rich red/brown brick architecture. I loved that our buildings had the original city style architecture with flat roofs and tall ceilings. Our home has 8' pocket doors, a parlor and 2 staircases. Originally they had fireplaces in every room and gas lighting. This house had many of those features so I feel very fortunate to have one of these historic looking buildings. The apartments we now rent on VRBO were smaller and perfect for rental property, so we updated them as well with all new HVAC, electric and plumbing. We live across from a lovely city park and can walk to our favorite restaurants and to play bocce in our bocce league, spring, summer and fall at our favorite Bar, Milo's Bocce Garden. I love the people in this neighborhood, many are people we grew up with. We are close to Forest Park, downtown, the Central West End, Soulard and Busch Stadiu,m where we love to watch our famous Cardinals play baseball. I wouldn't trade my neighborhood for any other in the city. We feel very fortunate to be here. Now, if only I can convince my husband to get a golf cart for getting around our neighborhood and style!!
