North County

FlorissantFlowersJust to the north and west of downtown St. Louis and its glimmering Gateway Arch stands a vibrant, burgeoning community where families, businesses, city organizations, churches, and schools have come together to create an area they can be proud of.

Rising from its rolling landscapes are homes in a diversity of price ranges and styles, a thriving business community anchored by such corporate giants as Boeing, GKN Aerospace, Christian Hospital, SSM DePaul Health Center, St. Louis Mills, Cabela’s, and Mallinckrodt Inc., an astounding array of local retail and service-related businesses, and a myriad of cultural and community attractions.

North County’s outstanding location (only 20 minutes from downtown along Interstate 70) has residents minutes away from the major attractions of both down-town St. Louis and St. Louis County. North County offers a peaceful, civil environment that benefits from convenient proximity to the business, cultural and entertainment centers of St. Louis.

The diverse population of the North County has long demonstrated an exceptional regard for tradition and history. Treasured old buildings are restored and proudly preserved, and annual fairs and festivals honor heritage and origins.
To live in North County means to have it all: great hospitals and health care facilities, superb municipal services, outstanding public and private schools, abundant shopping malls and retail strip centers, parks, churches and civic and cultural attractions-all within easy reach.

From quaint and affordable to upscale and modern, a variety of home styles in all price ranges are available to residents of the North County. A broad offering of attractive apartment homes, condominiums and town homes are also in abundance and can be found in all price ranges. Affordability is one of the most attractive features common to all homes in the North County. Homes in virtually all styles and sizes tend to be more reasonably priced than comparable homes in other areas of St. Louis-a city which already boasts some of the best housing prices in the nation. In addition, many spacious executive-style homes are built overlooking the Missouri River.
