Guess the Neighborhood

How well do you know St. Louis?

Can you tell by a group of houses what neighborhood you're in with literally no other information?

Then where's the site below, captured by Google Streetview?

There are a few clues after all, I guess. For one, there are driveways present. That should narrow it down a bit. Secondly, the house in the center is fairly rare for St. Louis, with its pronouncedly concave roof eaves.

Which neighborhood is it? If you dare, which street/block?

I'm going to guess South City, near Carondelet Park...Holly Hills area, let's say. I seem to recall at least a few street driveways along HH Blvd.

St. Louis Hills

I'm not sure why but I think this is Shaw. One of the blocks further to the east, rather than deep into the neighborhood. Maybe Castelman.

Carondelet. Or maybe Dutchtown.

Southhampton. Three or so blocks west of Kingshighway on Landsdown.

63109 baby!

Southampton is correct!

Now who can get the block/street?

Lansdowne is incorrect.
