120 S Elizabeth Avenue in Ferguson Mo offered at $199900
There’s a certain pleasure in selling a home when the current owners are wanting to “pay it forward”. 120 S Elizabeth Avenue has been home to the Goodbarys since 1996. This home was a wonderful setting for raising a family and has many good memories. Oh and good for parties too.
It is located on a tree lined street in Old Ferguson East. Click here for additional information about Ferguson MO. The lot size is 193×680, a little over 3 acres.The home sits regally at the top of a small incline. It has a tennis court that could also be a basketball court. There is a outdoor pavilion with a fireplace and there is also a firepit in the yard. The owners assure me that sledding in the back “forty” provides a fun time for everyone on a snow day. The two-car garage has an electric door opener.
Part of the yard includes a rain garden (watered by rain run-off). This area is just to the left of the front door. It is filled with perennials and berries including raspberry plants and strawberries and asparagus. There is a food forest area in the back yard with 2 year old fruit trees, an herb garden and plenty of room for yearly plantings of the vegetables of your choice. The soil is ready for growing.
The home itself is set up for gracious living. The original front door is full glass and lets you peak into the gracious entry foyer. The living room is 32×16 and has a wood burning fireplace with an outdoor ash removal door. One could tend to put on the pounds with this dining room. It is sooooo inviting with the amount of light and the generous size – 20×15.The kitchen has a newer ceramic tile floor. It has plenty of floor to ceiling cabinets and storage. There is also a built in breakfast bar. The appliances are newer: Kenmore Elite cooktop and double wall ovens less than a year old. The first floor also includes an office and a den, a full bathroom and an updated half bath.
Upstairs there are 4 large bedrooms, a large landing area and a very spacious bath with a separate shower and jacuzzi tub.
There are a lot of the features that you would expect in a house of this era like arches and french doors, hardwood floors and a laundry chute. There are also some surprising features like the closets. Every bedroom has a walk-in closet and 3 of them have built-in dressers. The wood windows are all in good shape and all have screens. Many of the windows still have the original glass.
120 S Elizabeth Avenue has a dual heating system consisting of a newer boiler for the hot water heat and zoned air handlers for heating and air conditioning. The dual system allows you to take advantage of the forced air heat in the spring and fall before turning on the hot water heat for the duration. Budget billing is $245/month for AmerenUE and $125/month for Laclede Gas. The home also has a newer roof. The full basement is walk-out and has a cellar door.
