The properties in St. Albans are unsurpassed in their beauty and distinguished architecture. These homes are typically larger, often no less than 2,500 square feet, but more often are around 5,000-7,000 square feet. While all properties in St. Albans are high end and quality homes, they cover two separate ends of the spectrum. There are more modest townhomes, located in beautiful and picturesque neighborhoods, which are commonly private communities. These villas have stone and brick detail that is unique to this area, with impeccable chimneys and arches, large dramatic windows, and perfectly manicured landscapes. These private streets are lined with unique and tasteful single-family homes.
The more elaborate estates are often more spread out, with a country setting and private, rural lots. While these properties are typically more pricey, they include features such as spacious and lofty interior layouts, particularly designed swimming pools, wall-length windows, and stone and brick verandas. One look in these houses and you will see the unique beauty and style offered by properties in St. Albans.
Because St. Albans is a more private community and is located about 45 minutes west of St. Louis, the community is slightly isolated, which is an attraction for most residents. St. Albans prides themselves on remaining mostly unincorporated, which adds to the desirable, relaxing ambiance of this community.

Located in the town’s center is the historically renowned shop, Head’s Shop, which was founded over 100 years ago. Located in historic St. Albans, this unique general store also contains a delightful restaurant, which serves the famous Pappy’ Barbecue!
One of the best features of St. Albans is the beauty of the entire area. This community is well-kept and prestigious, while also intimate and tight-knit.
