Ellisville, Missouri Real Estate

Combining a country flavor with the best of suburban living, Ellisville, Missouri offers reasonably priced housing in one of the more favored areas of West St. Louis County. According to the St. Louis MARIS multiple listing service, the median sale price for a home in Ellisville, Missouri is $160,000, just up from last year.

Nestled between Wildwood and Ballwin, the City of Ellisville website shares some intriguing history about this portion of St. Louis real estate.  The history of the community actually dates back to pre-1900.  The area was originally “settled by Captain James Harvey Ferris of Kentucky before 1837.”  Later, he sold the property to William A. Hereford in sometime between 1842 and 1843. Hereford would name the city after “his former post office in Ellisville, Virginia.” It wasn’t until 1932 that it was incorporated in order to “create a public school district for Ellisville children.”  Since that time, Ellisville has grown to 9,000 plus residents, according to the Ellisville website.

The community maintains its original charm by not allowing itself to be solely confined to the typical suburban concrete and asphalt design. Although the city has a healthy retail and business infrastructure, Ellisville real estate includes access to healthy park system that takes advantage of the beauty of the natural landscape. For instance, Bluebird Park, which also serves as the community center hub, is nestled amongst rolling hills.  During various times of the year, you may find artistic programming and even a farmer’s market here.

Perhaps one of the most favored aspects of the community is the dedication to quality education. Ellisville is included in the Rockwood School District, which is highly prized as providing a top-notch curriculum.

However, the attractiveness of Ellisville may be the affordability. A quick tour of the Prudential Select Properties (PSP) website at www.discoverstl.com reveals that a select portion of Ellisville homes for sale may even be available under $150,000 presently.  Contact your local PSP agent for a list of Ellisville homes for sale and open houses.
