If you want white picket fences, then look no further than Town and Country. Just 12 miles west of Saint Louis, it makes for a convenient drive to work and city life while still maintaining a quiet, country-like home life.
You’ll find street after street of large, luminous homes. Before Town and Country became what it is today, it was home to several farms and rural land. In keeping with that theme, you’ll find large lots and even some farms as you drive through nowadays. The old country feel and charm of the green fenced yards complete with grazing horses still exists.
Town and Country, Missouri is a very prestigious suburb of Saint Louis County. This means the neighborhoods are going to have much higher prices and values than the average.
• Detached houses: $846,191
• Townhouses or attached units: $551,571
• In 2-unit structures: $328,553
• In 3-to-4-unit structures: $493,115
• In 5-or-more-unit structures: $447,052
The homes in Town and Country have a higher value than in most of the country, as well as the city. The median list price is $639,900, but the median sale price is much higher at $932,500. But with only 14 homes sold in June, most people that move here tend to fall in love with it so much, that they stay for longer periods of time.
Because the focus is primarily on residential neighborhoods, there are few commercial developments inside city limits. But there are some fine dining and shopping experiences to be had at major intersections, like Clayton and 141. Here you’ll discover a new way of shopping at the Lamp and Lantern Village. There are tons of local boutiques and restaurants on a two-tier plaza. Plus there’s the new Whole Foods and other shops at Town and Country Crossing.
