Eagles Ridge is a huge community set in the rolling hills of St. Charles, Missouri. With over 500 homes in the subdivision and additional subdivisions branching off from the neighborhood, it is hard to tell where this subdivision ends and other subdivisions begin. In fact, when driving half way down the main road in this subdivision, you will see an additional neighborhood sign that appears to be positioned in someone’s front yard. The sign says “Harvest Valley” and appears to be the foundation for Eagles Ridge, which was built around the original subdivision, creating a larger community.
The main road in the subdivision, Eagles Hill Ridge runs east to west with multiple streets stemming off the north and south and leading into neighboring subdivisions like Arlington Heights. The main Entrance to the Subdivision is on Caulks Hill Road. If you take the main road, Eagles Hill Ridge, through the subdivision to Willow Bend, it will lead you out of the east side of the subdivision at Jungs Station Road. Because the subdivision goes through the main road can get substantial pass through traffic which makes living on the main road less desirable. The community has attempted to offset this with several safety features including stop signs every few blocks and sidewalks consistently placed on both sides of the main road. There is also adequate lighting throughout the main drag.
Despite the size of the community, there are no additional amenities like a community pool, park, or anything else that would set this community apart from other subdivisions in St. Charles County. The price of the homes in January of 2010 started in the ball park of $180,000 and up. Most of the homes are close to 2,000 square feet with two- to three-car garages, if you include finished basement floor space. The vaulted ceilings in many of them give them a luxurious and modern feel at a moderate cost.
The location provides easy access to the St. Charles and St. Peters community with the closest main intersection at Caulks Hill and Harvester just a block or so from Highway 94. It is also very close to 394 Page Extension for easy access to 270 and the greater St. Louis area. Caulks Hill Road is very busy and has many commercial establishments providing nearby services such as dog grooming, nails and hair salon, insurance companies, Super WalMart, Shop N Save, Good Will and many restaurants and fast food locations.
Highway 94 has undergone a complete makeover at Harvester which has some flustered at rush hour, but the flow of traffic in general is not real bad. The construction, which started in 2009, is expected to last about 5 years before completion. This could be a deterrent for some people who are relocating to the area.
The school district, however, will be a plus. Residents who live in Eagles Ridge will be in the Francis Howell school district, which has a good reputation for education and child safety. The school boundaries set in 2010 show that students in Eagles Ridge would attend Becky-David Elementary, Barnwell Middle, or Francis Howell North High School depending on your child’s age.
