Benton Park West is bounded on the east by South Jefferson Avenue, on the south by Cherokee Street and by Gravois Boulevard on the Northwest. There is a three-block area from Compton to Potomac then to Gravois that is also a part of Benton Park West. Many of the homes on the north side of Potomac face Gravois Park.
Residents can walk to the Historic Cherokee Shopping District in Benton Park West. Vibrant new stores and restaurants make this one of St. Louis City's "Hot Spots".
Homes in this turn-of-the-century neighborhood feature many handcrafted architectural details unique to the early 1900s and even many 1950's bungalows. Elaborate brickwork, stained glass, and oak mantles inspire are common in these homes.
