Updated Elegance In The Heart Of Clayton!

Blooming red-bud tree to the right, a whiff of lilac as you pass the driveway to park in the two-car garage, greeted by vibrant hydrangeas and perennials— coming home after a long day at work would resemble living in a park. Did I mention all the renovations, replaced systems, finished basement, and fabulous yard with 3-tiered deck—perfect for entertaining and only 2 blocks close to Glenridge elementary, one of the most coveted Clayton schools?

Transform your daily and social life with this updated 3+bedroom-2-full-2-half-bath home with a home office and a sun room, gracing one of the most beautiful streets in Clayton. The elegant Tudor façade welcomes you to a large center hall foyer where you would greet your guests with refreshments in the living room, warmed up by natural light and the cozy fireplace. When it's time for activities, nothing spells fun like the sun/family/music room, brimming with built-in cabinets and shelves, yet spacious enough to take in a baby-grand and entertain daily.

Of course, the magic presented in the charming dining room happens in the updated eat-in kitchen with granite and travertine backsplash, stainless appliances and a modern gas stove.  You will not know what to do first: cook, read a book by the fireplace, laugh with the kids when they ask you a 100 “why” questions while doing homework, play your piano and strings or impress your friends with an unforgettable dinner.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are updated with a thought for esthetics and an eye for practical detail. The primary bedrooms with vaulted and coffered ceiling was expanded to the 4th bedroom, enclosed as a private home office and a dressing room, while the en-suite bath was remodeled with a separate shower, jetted tub, travertine and pedestal sink. Recently updated second bath is great for the two extra bedrooms upstairs.
