"Lovely Suburb Convenient to St. Louis"

Swansea, Illinois is a beautiful family oriented city located about 15 minutes from downtown St. Louis and 15 minutes to Scott Air Force Base. If you are looking for that suburb feeling without the busy city life you have found the right place! Swansea lies between Fairview Heights and Belleville with the majority of its homes in the Belleville School District. With a booming real estate market you will find some great new construction or a lovely historic home, whatever your tastes might be! With several amenities including its own Metrolink stop, commuting is easy to other stops in Illinois or downtown St. Louis. With close highway access you can easily reach St. Clair Square mall or its many restaurant and parks all within 10 minutes of your front door!
