One of my favorite neighborhoods in Clayon is Wydown Forest. Located behind the corner of Hanley and Wydown, this neighborhood is tree-lined and, due to the small lots and shallow set-backs, exudes a “Vieille Ville” charm. Most of the homes were built between the mid-1920s through mid-1930s in period revival styles. The homes carry many architectural details that are often only seen in larger homes. A few of the homes were even designed by the famed St. Louis luxury architecture firm of Maritz & Young. One of the more affordable Clayton neighborhoods, sold prices range from the $300s to the mid $600s for larger, more up-to-date homes. There has been one previous tear-down and newly constructed home in the neighborhood and several homes have completed single and two-story additions. There is one recent sale that I expect will also be torn down to make way for new construction and perhaps one other that may ultimately head that direction.
If there were such a thing as a price-to-walkability ratio, Wydown Forest might have the best in town. Residents enjoy walking to Downtown Clayton, Glenridge Elementary School, Wydown Middle School and the metro-link for quick access to BJC and St. Louis City. If you are a runner or cyclist, the neighborhood is an ideal starting point for a trip down Wydown Blvd to Forest Park.
Take a look at a few of the homes sold in the neighborhood in the past year. My team handled the sale of 3 of these properties, involving 4 deal-sides, and one property that never made it onto the open market.
