The Beauty of Dutchtown, 99: Tennessee Avenue Between Itaska and Taft Streets, West Side

The next block is just as unique as the others further south on Tennessee Avenue, with compact two-families starting out just north of the Itaska.

But then we get a whole row of single story bungalows.

More than anything, I associate these houses with the southern end of Dutchtown, down the hill from Meramec Street.

Sadly, this corner store is sitting abandoned.

    I am not always the biggest fan of St. Louis’s one-story “bungalow” designs; they vary in original design quality and in how much they have been remuddled over the years. But, I really like the one you picked for the featured photo. It’s a simple design, but I feel the arched entrance, brick dentil cornice, and terra cotta cornice capping really work. It’s a small house, but one that stands out to me for its design and build quality.
