5337 Mardel Ave, 3 bedrooms, 2 car garage
Offered at $225000
5337 Mardel Avenue is in the North Hampton Neighborhood in the city of St Louis. It was built in 1931 during the decade of skilled stone/brick masons. This home is one of those with a stone turret and great detail on the full brick home. Oh and notice the copper gutters on the turret.
The entrance foyer is in the shape of the turret and has two leaded windows and a guest closet. The entire first floor has gleaming hardwood floors. The living room and dining room have coved ceilings. The living room faces south and has a large picture window with leaded glass.
The fireplace is flanked by stained glass windows. There are original sconces above the fireplace that work. There are working sconces on each side of the arched entry between the living room and dining room. The full masonry fireplace is currently non functional. The windows are the original wood windows with storm windows. The woodwork has never been painted.
The kitchen is amazing. How can it be that a ninety year old home can be this well preserved and cared for. The kitchen still has the original sink and cabinets. The original glass knobs are even still there (look in kitchen drawer). The vitrolite is in excellent condition. The floors are gleaming hardwood. There is a screened porch off the kitchen.
But the upstairs – now that is the great surprise. There is a large bedroom or hangout place that is carpeted and then an incredible unfinished area to turn into a sky-loft. There is a nice spot for another bathroom too.
To top off the amenities of this home: 2 car garage, fenced back yard, patio. It’s a winner.
5337 Mardel Avenue is located in the North Hampton neighborhood of St Louis city. It has a population of 12,077. Niche ranks it as one of the best places to live in Missouri. It is located in Southwest City, bounded by Scanlan and Connecticut to the North, South Kingshighway to the East, Chippewa to the South, and Hampton to the West.
The walkscore is only 67 but I think it has a lot of the places a neighborhood likes to walk to.
Tilles Park is the neighborhood park. It is all about nicely landscaped areas, clean spaces and outdoor physical activities including playgrounds, a roller hockey rink, 3 soccer fields, a soccer kick board, 3 softball/baseball fields, a basketball/volleyball court, 2 racquetball courts, 3 tennis courts, picnic pavilion, an exercise station and walking path. Nice!!!
Each neighborhood in the city is serviced by one or more traditional public schools covering Kindergarten to 12th grade, operated by the St. Louis Public Schools (SLPS) district, supported by local, state and national tax dollars. Your child is assigned a school based on your address. Like all public schools, these are tuition-free and follow curriculum and evaluation guidelines established by the state of Missouri.
5337 Mardel Avenue is in the City of St Louis Public School District. The elementary school is Buder Elementary which is 6 blocks from the home. It has 363 students from PK – 5th grade. Long Middle Community Ed. Center has 232 students from 6 – 8th grade. Roosevelt High School has 444 students from 9th – 12th grade. This link will give you more information about the magnet schools that are available in the city.
Parents and students in SLPS have options. There are 27 magnet schools within the district . They are also tuition free with a couple key differences:
- Magnet schools don’t have boundaries, and can attract students from any neighborhood in the city (hence the name). This generally results in a more diverse mix of social, economic, ethnic, and racial backgrounds.
- Each magnet offers something different than a traditional public school, be it emphasis on certain subjects, a particular educational approach, or theme.
- Some magnets require students to meet certain academic, skill, behavior and/or attendance requirements.
- Advanced application is required and because of their popularity, spots are allocated by lottery.
There are 36 charter schools in St Louis which are also tuition-free schools but not a part of the SLPS. To learn more about charter schools go to: Charter School 101: The Basics.
