Chesterfield is a city located in the St. Louis metropolitan area, which is part of Missouri, United States.
Chesterfield is quiet overall, as the streets are usually quite peaceful - although that is not the case close to the railway line, the airport (Spirit of St Louis Airport), Interstate 64 or US Highway 61. Accessing public green spaces from numerous locations within the city, like Faust Park and Howell Island Conservation Area, is rather challenging since they are spread out sporadically. Still, there are a few parks close by for residents to unwind in.
Single detached homes are the predominant housing type, representing the majority of the dwellings in Chesterfield, and the remaining properties are mainly large apartment buildings and townhouses. The median year of construction for buildings in this part of the St. Louis metropolitan area is 1988. This city is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. Roughly 80% of the population of this city own their home whereas the rest are renters.
There are only a few high schools and primary schools in Chesterfield and for this reason they can be a long walk away. Besides public schools, there are private elementary and secondary schools. As far as eating is concerned, some house buyers in Chesterfield may be able to access one of approximately 40 grocery stores on foot, while others will need a vehicle. Residents are served by over 200 restaurants and coffee shops as well.
Driving is usually the best transportation option in this city. Many houses for sale are a reasonably short car ride from the nearest highway, such as Interstate 64, and it is especially convenient to find a place to park. In contrast, public transit riders may have very limited options in Chesterfield as a result of the service's low frequency. Nonetheless, the city is connected by a few bus lines. Chesterfield is not very well-suited for walking because running common errands is challenging.
