St. Ann began in the early forties during a time of tremendous growth for the area. According to stannmo.org, “Studies that were conducted revealed that a lot of the family heads during this time were World War II veterans and other returning servicemen that found St. Ann was a young thriving community with moderately priced homes and attractive areas to raise their families.” It was a place where family and church were a priority.
The layout of St. Ann real estate reflects this family-centered approach. Neighborhoods are neatly designed with many homes in easy walking distance to St. Charles Rock Road. Originally, many of the families may have chosen to live near their “parish.” The bungalow architecture of the homes is typically compact and efficient, which can be of either frame or brick construction. When first constructed, many of the homes would have had one full bath and two to three bedrooms. You may find that some homeowners have built additions either in the back of the structures or have added a second floor. If available, garages will be detached in St. Ann homes for sale. Zoysia grass is a common element in the often spacious yards.
When considering purchasing St. Louis real estate, one of the highlights of St. Ann is the access to public transportation. MetroBus travel is plentiful with expedient connections to the MetroLink, which provides convenient travel into St. Louis. Lambert International Airport is also easily accessible by bus from St. Ann.
