BYO Helicopter (and $12.5 million) ~ The Most Expensive Listing on the Mid America Regional Information System (the “MLS”)!





Haven’t you always wondered what the most expensive home FOR SALE in the Mid Missouri area might be?  Well, there you have it.  It’s a former Anheuser-Busch meeting venue with a helipad and accommodations for up to 75 people.  Talk about your Lake Party House!  Whew!


But what is the most expensive home that has SOLD over the past year, you are wondering? It is in the $4 million range, and it is in Ladue. 

I don’t want to be like the BlockShopper people and name names and addresses, but here’s an anonymous-enough picture from the MLS:



The St. Louis Area MLS has plenty of Million Dollar Homes.  

Over the past year, 143 have sold in the price range of $1,000,000-$1,999,999.  Here’s a map showing the concentrations of such sales:

But when you climb over the $2,000,000 range, we only had 16 MLS-recorded sales.  Here’s the mapped locales of these few area sales:


Two Million Dollar Plus Map


Ladue, Town & Country, Huntleigh, Frontenac . . . this is where we expect to see these kinds of upper-end sales.


I think it’s fun to take a look at the data that is available on the MLS, as you’ll see in my previous post regarding Antebellum Homes on the MLS.  Of course our homes are our castles, no matter the price, size or age!


Happy Real Estating, everyone!

Noteworthy Antebellum Homes FOR SALE!

A friend and past client so enjoyed the listing updates I sent to her while she was in the midst of buying and selling that we created and still follow a few fun ones. 

One of the automatic searches we do is for Antebellum homes. 

(Want an automatic search for homes of your very own?  CALL ME / WRITE TO ME and I will put one together!)

This recent listing certainly caught my eye:






Click the following URL to see the Listing:

According to the listing agent’s description, the home was owned by the Stark Family, of the Stark Bros. tree nursery fame in Louisiana, Missouri.   That is a little local fame, for sure. 

The agent points out that Louisiana was/is part of Missouri’s “Little Dixie” area.   Do you know what the Little Dixie Area of Missouri is all about?  Have you seen the sign along Highway 70 indicating that Little Dixie Lake is North off Highway 40/61, and think, “Little Dixie????”  If you haven’t heard of it, you may be surprised.  The middle of Missouri (think the Highway 70 corridor, and then a little north) was once a society that mirrored its Southern namesake in a way that almost no other part of the state did, with respect to slavery and agriculture.  Many of the plantation homes still stand, with former slave quarters still in existence as well.  If you can get ahold of a copy of the February 2012 Missouri Life magazine, there is a great article about this subject.  I tried to find a link for us, to no avail.

The list price on this, by the way, is $1.2 million.  Please call me if you want to see/buy it!


Here’s another Antebellum / Little Dixie Home that used to be a General Store:
