Realtors with listings in St. Elmo have something new to brag about: The editors of “This Old House” have tracked down neighborhoods in the U.S. and Canada that have promising futures, strong communities, and homes that deserve a long-term commitment. The 2013 list of “Best Old-House Neighborhoods” includes Chattanooga’s historic St. Elmo district. Criteria for making the list includes architectural diversity, the craftsmanship of the homes, the preservation momentum in the area, and neighborhood amenities such as walkability, safety, and community. “This Old House” compiled its list with the help of neighborhood groups, real estate agents, and preservation societies. Winning neighborhoods are divided into categories such as Best Bargains, Best for First-time Homeowners, Best for Retirees, Easy Commute, and Best City Living. St Elmo’s is listed in the Best Bargains and Best City Living categories.
