At 12045 Gailcrest Lane, everything you need is right at your fingertips. Whether you’re looking to enjoy the private putting green, splash around in the pool or hit the private gym, there’s plenty of ways to keep active without leaving home—or you can just take in the gorgeous views of the two acre property. Listing agent Lizzy Dooley is giving T&S a peek inside this Town and Country estate.

What are the benefits of the location?
It’s located in the Barrington Place neighborhood. You’re in the Parkway School District and very close to the edge of Laude, so you’re right in the central corridor sweet spot. There’s amazing access to highway 40, but you don’t have to deal with any highway noise. The neighborhood has a private back gate, which is a very cool feature.

How are the outdoor spaces unique?
There are two unique executive outdoor spaces. One is the stone terrace, which walks out from the living room and provides a prime view of the property’s two acres. From the basement, you can access the pool and a covered area with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace. The yard also has a putting green.

Tell me about the interior?
When you walk into the home, you enter a two-story marble foyer, with a beautiful wood paneled office to the right and a dining room to the left. The current homeowners moved in during the pandemic, and they had plenty of room to spread out and stay active during lockdown. Along with the pool and putting green outside, there’s a full gym and rec room in the lower level.


How is the home for entertaining?
The property is perfect for both formal and casual gatherings. On the main level, you have a formal dining room, and the living room has a big bar to accommodate guests. Plus, there’s direct access to the terrace for outdoor entertaining. In the basement, there’s a lot of space for kids. You really can have the adults gathering upstairs while the kids hangout downstairs, and you won’t even be able to tell there are multiple parties going on. Right now, people are really looking for opportunities to spend casual time together, instead of a specific event. This home has a lot of great spaces for entertaining and everyday living.

What do you most want potential buyers to know about the property?
There aren’t very many places in St. Louis where you can find a lot like this. It’s level with two acres of extremely usable land. Typically in Ladue or Town and Country, you get a lot of hilly or wooded property, so this is really spectacular. You not only get this beautiful home, but also some fabulous outdoor living spaces.
