Housing

Some of the St. Louis area's finest single-family homes, apartments, and condominiums can be found gracing the lush wooded landscapes of Chesterfield. A myriad of home styles are offered, ranging from Colonial to Tudor to French to contemporary.

Chesterfield is attractive as a place to live and is viewed as the ideal West St. Louis County location. Our two top-rated public school districts of Parkway and Rockwood make this area highly attractive for those with school-aged children. The community has much to offer our residents--It's All Right Here!

For those seeking a more carefree style of living, Chesterfield offers an array of beautiful condominium and luxury apartment communities in a wide range of prices. Many of these communities include such amenities as swimming pools, tennis courts, private lakes, clubhouses, and walking trails.

Chesterfield also boasts a number of retirement communities offering independent living, assisted living, nursing home care, or any combination of the three.

In early 2015, Chesterfield Senior Planner John Boyer prepared an extensive analysis of Chesterfield's housing market and population utilizing Census data.  While information in this report is limited due to lack of available census periods and narrowed for housing information, City Staff will continue to use information as it becomes available to assess the City.  A brief summary of the above findings is as follows:

  • The City’s population has increased slightly since 2000 (2011-2016 estimated at 47,659 people).
  • The City’s population is becoming older (estimated median age of 45.8).
  • 70% of the City’s households are family households.
  • The City’s Housing stock has a median age of construction of 1981.
  • The number of residential homes built per year since 1994 has decreased.
  • 94% of housing units are occupied.
    • Of those occupied, a high majority is owner occupied and not rented.
    • A majority of the City’s housing stock is single family detached residences (58% in 2014).
    • Ward 2 (east-central Chesterfield) has seen the greatest percent change (12.7%) since 2000.
    • The median housing value is approximately $330,000, which is similar to adjacent communities.
    • Average Rent is $1,113, which is also similar to adjacent communities.
    • Rental units may be becoming less affordable based upon percentage of household income spent on rent.
