Welcome to Our Home!
Our home, at 6647 Waterman Avenue, is in the subdivision of Ames Place, in University City, MO.
There are approximately 215 residences in Ames Place which includes the 6600, 6800, and 6900 blocks of Pershing, Waterman and University Drive, and the south side of the same blocks of Kingsbury Boulevard (There is no 6700 block in this part of University City.). The contiguous 300 and 400 blocks of Melville are also in Ames Place.
Our unique 6647 Waterman house was designed by the architect Charles Thurston and built by contractor and owner, R.E. Herweck. It was built during the years 1915 – 1917. There have been four owners/residents from 1915 to the present — Richard E. & Hazel Herweck (1917), Harvey & Rosalie Lieberstein (1934), Allen & Jacqueline Goodwin (1972), and Ron & Kathy Rogers (1979). The lot is 50 feet by 140 feet with a natural landscape. The house at 6647 Waterman has 2600 square feet of living space and is an all brick construction with a full stone basement. It contains three porches (one front and two back), five bedrooms (a sixth was converted into a spa), 2 1/2 baths, and a two-car detached garage.
Ames Place is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in St. Louis. It features two and three story brick/stucco homes; a blend of old St. Louis architecture & charm with today’s finest amenities. The subdivision is a gated community and is bordered by Washington University, Forest Park, and the Delmar Loop. Ames Place features sidewalks and street lights, on both sides of the streets, and all homes are within easy walking distance to Washington University, MetroLink, and the Delmar Loop (restaurants and shopping). Forest Park, one of the largest urban parks in the US, is six blocks away and contains the Zoo, Art Museum, Missouri History Museum, Outdoor Muny Opera, along with excellent walking and bicycling paths. Ames Place is a family friendly neighborhood, with a 40+ year history of a fabulous Fourth of July parade and party. Due to its location and quality houses, there are many University professors, doctors and other professionals who call Ames Place home.
