    Oh
    I am sorry! We have not closed the deal yet. I meant, we made offer, and buyer accepted. We do have a few days to read over the condominium rules and approve them.

    we own no little houses any more. We sold the last ones 8 months ago.Let me say I am absolutely thrilled with the new owner’s work on them. He’s already finished with the first one and will have it up for sale very soon. It’s even staged With adorable red bistro furniture on the brick patio that he re-laid. He invited us over to see it, so cute! It’s exactly what that end of the neighborhood needs.

    You know there’s a real estate bubble when the IrisLily household buys real estate. We believe in buying high and selling low. Haha. Sad but true.

    * no pool
    * no central air conditioning

    It is a 93 year old building. Which I love!
    The only thing that would bother me would be the lack of central ac, but thatís easily remedied with a window unit. What would really be a deal breaker for me is no in unit washer and dryer.

    It looks like there's a portable unit in the main room. But I would want one in St. Louis, too.

    Frankly, at 93 years old I'd be pleased if the refrigerator were in the same room as the other kitchen appliances and there was three-wire electrical service throughout the apartment. I saw a lot of apartments before I moved into mine (before this house) where the lack of those "features" were showstoppers. This place looks nicely updated without killing the charm that helped it last this long.

    Wow, nice neighborhood! Also, it looks like there's a park across the street?

    It's lovely! Such a bright space; it looks very spacious for the actual square footage. You'll just need to be careful to avoid too many extra truck keys - haha!
