SOLD: The Penthouse in The York House

I don’t do lease work regularly, but occasionally, I assist a client in acquiring a special property.  This one takes the cake! The photographs of this historic 3,300 square-foot penthouse suite, with a private rooftop deck overlooking the Central West End and Forest Park, speak for themselves...

Lovely, isn’t it? My clients are tickled pink and move in next month! A sincere thank you to my client for the opportunity to help implement this exciting move.  In addition, a warm moment of gratitude to my former client turned friend, C, for the generous corporate client referral.💛  See the full listing HERE.

About the building: The York House, adjacent to the historic Chase Park Plaza hotel in the heart of the Central West End, was completed in 1922. It was originally named the Chase Apartments after its creator, Chase Ullman. It’s architectural design combines elements of Neoclassical revival with a muted Beaux Art style, consistent with the history and character of the neighborhood. 

This beauty was built in an era of sophisticated urban living, and this block was the center of it all. “Meet Me in St. Louis” was filmed right along Lindell Boulevard.   The Chase Club next-door was the place to see celebrity performers including Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope. These events were broadcast locally and nationally, and this block became a mainstay for entertainment. Later in the century, KPLR Channel 11 was headquartered in the building, and filming took place in the adjacent studio. During the flood of 1993, Peter Jennings broadcasted the ABC national news from the fourth floor of the York house.

It is a gorgeous building and a very unique unit in one of the most ideal locations in St. Louis.  A special new home for a special client, indeed!

In St. Louis and considering a move in 2019? The time to start planning is now! Have a friend who is looking for an agent?  I proudly base my business on direct referrals and wear my past client reviews like a badge of honor.  Let’s connect...
