St. Louis is filled with many unique communities that offer lifestyle advantages to residents.
Brentwood, MO is one of those places. It is the ideal place to live for St. Louis residents who prefer historic homes, convenient shopping, easy access to just about everywhere in the region and excellent schools. Most of the homes in the community of Brentwood are smaller than what you would find in the newer suburbs, but that doesn’t stop home buyers from snatching them up.
Just on the edge of Brentwood is one of my favorite small parks. Tilles park is big enough to offer lots to do while small enough to walk the trail that loops through the entire park in just a few minutes.
