Second Empire Beauty, Old North

Copyright St. Louis Patina -8286

Down a side street, and partially hidden by trees, is one of the most intriguing examples of the two story “micromansion,” as Rob Powers christened them many years ago. But this one is special, as it has an marble or other stone ashlar front facade, like you’d see in Lafayette Square or along St. Louis Avenue. It was lovingly restored and is a real treasure.
