We are looking to move to some acreage that is fairly rural. We'd like at least 10 or so acres, hopefully with some pretty landscape and water -river or year around stream. We'd absolutely love to have some hilly-type topography, and would like to have access to a pretty little town. However, we need to be within 1 1/2, at the very most, of St. Louis. I've read that St. Genevieve is very beautiful, but would really like some help here, as we're from out of state and am really trying to figure this out remotely.

And: Is there any area such as the above the may be headed toward "gentrification"? I mean that is trending toward trendy, I guess you could say.

I would look into the areas surrounding the wineries- Washington, Hermann, Augusta, Defiance, etc. Because of their proximity to St. Louis, there's a more gentrified feel.

You wouldn't be able to get 10 acres for a decent price in any of those town limits, but if you use them as reference points you should be able to find something.

The area surrounding Innsbrook maybe worth looking into as well.

What will your price range be?

Good luck in your search!

I agree with the above post. Franklin County and Warren Counties are good places to start.

I agree with glamatomic. The rolling hillsides around Marthasville & Augusta are gorgeous. On the other side of the MO river, Hermann, Washington & Labadie are also scenic and offer some nice options not too far from St Louis. I wouldn't call any of these areas "trendy" but values in most have been rising steadily.

The St. Genevieve area also has rolling hillsides. The town of St. Gen is cute and draws in tourists because of its history & architecture, like Hermann & Augusta do too. And all have wineries & vineyards nearby.

Missouri really does have some lovely rural property if you look in the right places. Sometimes you can even get your own cave!

Hello Everyone,

I'm sorry for the belated thank you on your replies to my message. They are all really helpful. We're just getting our feet wet and will do some driving in the above areas in the next week. One thing is for sure: Missouri is a beautiful state! I love looking at all the property at LandandFarm.

Thanks again!

I wouldn't count out Montgomery County.

As a laborer in St. Louis, it's just too far to commute 3 hours every day and work my ass off for 8, it's killer.

Try Montgomery City, the county seat. It's a quaint small town with about 2,800 people. Columbia is about 40 miles from Montgomery City.
