Anyone looking at the suburbs of St. Louis should be sure to check out University City homes. The city is one of the oldest suburbs and so has lots of houses built in classic architectural styles. There are gorgeous Victorian, Tudor, and Colonial mansions. You’ll also find comfortable arts and crafts style homes, mid-century ranch homes, and new construction family houses. There are charming Cape Cod cottages and even classy condos. Not only does University City real estate come in a range of styles, there’s also a range of prices, from budget-friendly to luxury.
The architecture isn’t the only selling point for University City homes. There’s also lots to do. The Delmar Loop (or often just The Loop) has cool mix of restaurants and pubs, shops, and entertainment. Grab drinks at Three Kings Pub, have a night out with friends at Pin Up Bowling, and check out the music at Vintage Vinyl.
The Loop is also the location for many great events throughout the year. Get Loop’d is the monthly First Friday event, when shops stay open late and restaurants offer special discounted menus. Celebrate summer with Delmar Loop Week, which culminates with Loop Arts Fest. The community also gets together for a Halloween scavenger hunt and celebrates the winter holidays from the end of November through mid-January.
Another fun area of University City is the northwestern end of Olive Boulevard. It’s a sort of unofficial Chinatown. Get dim sum, Korean barbecue, Taiwanese fare, or shop at one of the Asian markets and make your favorite dishes at home.
If you love the outdoors, you’ll love the many open spaces and parks in the city. Heman Park is the largest, at over 85 acres. There’s a huge playground and jogging path, as well as fields for soccer, baseball, softball, and football. You’ll find court for basketball, tennis, and horseshoes. Take classes at the recreation center and the community classes. There are several spots for picnics as well. The city also maintains Ruth Park Golf Course, a fun and challenging course set in a beautiful wooded area.
