This week, we're kicking off fall with two houses in the Clayton-Richmond Heights Patch area.
First we travel to 7412 York Dr., listed by Valerie and Steve Engel of Janet McAfee for $629,000 This beautiful older home is located in the Moorlands. The classic center hall layout features arched doorways, plenty of built-in shelving, wide plank hardwood floors and large windows in the roomy formal living and dining rooms. The kitchen has been renovated with ceramic tile floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast room with built-in wraparound bench seating.
A main-floor bonus room could serve as a sunroom or playroom. It has plenty of windows and exposed brick archways. Both the kitchen and bonus room open to the newly finished deck that overlooks a semi-private backyard. The second floor master suite offers a sitting room or home office, a bathroom and a walk-in closet.
Three more bedrooms and a hall bathroom complete the second floor. The finished lower level, featuring a stone fireplace, would make a great family recreation or TV room. There is a lot of storage space and a two-car garage. This home is within walking distance of schools, beautiful Wydown Boulevard and Forest Park. For more information or a private showing, call Valerie or Steve at 314-997-4800.
Next up is 119 N. Bemiston Ave. in Clayton, listed by Liza Thornhill of Janet McAfee for $985,000. This is a newer home in Old Town Clayton. As you walk inside, the two-story foyer and curved staircase with stepped windows set the tone for this uptown new classic. The living room has an impressive view through a floor-to-ceiling bay window and also features a fireplace. Next up is the den, which has a cozy feel and would provide a great space for entertaining with a wet bar, cherry wood finishes and matching crown molding. The dining room features a coffered ceiling, hardwood floors and large windows.
The master bedroom is on the main floor and features a bathroom with many mirrors and a skylight. Upstairs are two more spacious bedrooms and two full baths as well as a bonus room on the upper landing. Downstairs is a family room with a fireplace, a full bath and easy access to the three-car garage.
The kitchen has gorgeous new granite countertops and backsplash, a new cooktop and an undermount sink. The breakfast area opens to the private deck and manicured yard. The entire house has been freshly painted in warm, neutral tones. John Sullivan provided special interior design consulting. To see it, make an appointment with Liza by calling 314-997-4800.
