Geographers, physicians and astronomers, watch out, for this is a city that is home to an impressive number of scientists, running the entire gamut from social scientists, life scientists and physical scientists among others. Equally amazing is the fact that someone who stands in the middle of Price Road where Delmar ends, would technically be in three cities all at once: Olivette, University City and Ladue. Olivette, as you can see, is no ordinary city!
Previously known simply as 'Central' owing to its 'central' location, Olivette was settled in the mid-19th century as a farming community nestled along an ancient Indian trail called Bonhomme Road. It was incorporated as a city in 1930 by combining four different communities namely Central, Olive, Stratmann and Tower Hill. But how did the name Olivette come about? While the dictionary definition of an "Olivette" refers to "a large theatrical floodlight having a single bulb," this particular Olivette was probably named so because the main road into St. Louis connected with Olive Street. Presently, although Olivette is an inner-ring suburb of St. Louis, Missouri, residents treat it like their very own city. With a population of 7,737 and spread over an area of approximately 2.95 square miles, it is located 700 feet above sea level, and is one of the highest communities in St. Louis County. See more
Finding apartments with a pool in Olivette means cooling off from the summer heat, get-togethers, and more exercise. However, there are a few things to consider before signing your next lease.
Ask the property management how long the pool is open each year. Is it seasonal? Does the pool have a heat pump to make it practical to swim beyond summertime? You should also inquire about pool rules, capacity, and if unattended children are permitted. The size of the pool also matters. An oversized apartment complex with a tiny pool could mean crowded summers and frustrations when trying to take a quick dip.
Finding apartments with a pool in Olivette could also drive up your rent, but may be worth the trade-off. Assess the overall amenities of the property. Apartments with a pool may look fantastic on the outside, but inside the kitchen could need an upgrade or the bedrooms could prove smaller than you want.
Once you find the apartment of your dreams, enjoy an afternoon swim and get to know your new neighbors.
