Union Real Estate
Union Real Estate
Located in the heart of Missouri Wine country, Washington, with a population of over 19,000 people, is the largest community between St. Louis County to the east and Missouri state capital Jefferson City to the west. Situated in the Franklin County real estate market, but only 50 miles from downtown St. Louis, Washington is experiencing recent urbanization due to its attractiveness to St. Louis residents willing to commute for work.
With its ideal location on the banks of the Missouri River and its dedication to preserving its historic identity, Washington is a charming town to call home. The people are friendly and support their community through volunteer work. There are plenty of shopping choices, and lots of great schools, churches, hospitals and parks. Many delightful single family homes are available throughout Washington in the Franklin County real estate market, as well as farms and acreages just outside of town.
Due to its historic charm, its riverfront location, and its proximity to several wineries and vineyards, Washington has a thriving tourism industry. In the past two decades, Washington has experienced impressive residential, commercial and industrial development, its population booming by over 40%, and diversification of its main industries.
Just south of Washington on Highway 47 is Union, Missouri. With a population of over 13,000, Union is the seat of the Franklin County real estate market. Union is also a river town, located on the Bourbeuse River, which helps explain why this part of Missouri is nicknamed the "Four Rivers" area.
Union is becoming a peaceful and charming alternative to hectic city life for more and more workers. As a growing bedroom community, Union has a delightful selection of single family homes and farms and acreages. Union retains its small town flavor while being a very convenient 30 minute drive from St. Louis just up the I44 Interstate. And living here, nestled among rolling hills and picturesque groves of trees, you won´t sacrifice any of the amenities of modern life. Union offers some choice industrial and commercial real estate and a well-established business community, offering everything a family could need.
