Wouldn’t be cool to say I own the former home of a rock and roll star especially one who played in the Hannibal-Quincy area years ago? Well, you can if you purchase the former home of rock and roll Hall of Famer Chuck Berry. It would be even cooler if I bought it since I was fortunate enough years ago to, by chance, have lunch with Berry at his old restaurant the “Southern Air” in Wentzville, Missouri.

The man who basically invented rock and roll at one time lived near the Central West End of St. Louis.  Berry’s previous home, located in the Greater Ville at 3137 Whittier Street, has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places and it’s currently zoned for residential use.

And even without that Berry pedigree, this home would still be a steal. It’s located on a beautiful tree-lined street just north of Delmar Boulevard. It includes stained glass windows, pocket doors, a game room, a two-car garage and even a carriage house. The house has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, including one with a big marble tub.

The property is listed for just $399,000. For more information on the home, contact Leigh Leonard at Coldwell Banker Gundaker - St. Louis at 314-351-6005.
