South Kingshighway Houses, Princeton Heights


There is a strange but interesting mix of houses lining Kingshigway, which doesn’t seem like was intended to be a major artery when these homes were built.


Interestingly, there are many brick Arts and Crafts Style houses in this city, including the one below–they’re usually sheathed in stucco and half timber.


Then there’s this ranches house, which defies categorization.

    The bldg in the last photo is actually a duplex. I lived in the apartment bldg next to it about 20 years ago. The architectural detail inside that building was amazing!

      Classic St. Louis! I’ve often written about how St. Louis builders designed multi-family buildings to look like single family houses. I see it now, thank you!
