800 S. Hanley Road, No. 6C, Clayton
from the agent | According to real estate agent Lizzy Dooley, the owner of this condominium traveled the world, and that influence is evident in the property’s elegance and style. “She recently completed a renovation and chose simple, clean lines for the interior, from the beautiful herringbone wood floors to the professional kitchen appliances,” she says. “The building is newer construction, just 23 years old, so it’s fresh and modern. I consider this home one of the premier Clayton units in this price range.”
Does the home offer privacy and security?
There are only eight floors in the building and 40 units, so there is plenty of privacy and room to breathe. The building has been under the same management since the beginning, and the staff takes very good care of its homeowners, including following appropriate COVID-19 precautions. There is also a 24-hour doorman to assist residents.
What are some of its best spaces for relaxing?
The property has large, covered balconies off of the dining room and kitchen, which is a real plus. There’s nothing like unwinding outside after a long day while you enjoy the dramatic views.
Is it conducive to working from home?
This is a wonderful property for remote work. There is a large, private office and plenty of overflow workspace in the unit.
What about entertaining?
The living room is very welcoming, and the large, eat-in kitchen has a very practical center island, perfect for mingling with guests and cooking for family. It’s hard to find a kitchen this spacious elsewhere around Clayton.
What other conveniences does the property offer?
It comes with four parking spaces, which is unusual in this area. You don’t often see that at this price point. It’s great to have the extra parking available when you are entertaining visitors or out-of-town guests. Also, there is a laundry area in the unit and plenty of storage.
What about the home is most pleasing to the senses?
The living room is designed as an open concept with a large, east-facing wall of windows. The unit is on an upper floor, so the views are striking. The interior color scheme is very neutral and bright, and even on the grayest days, you can enjoy natural light because of the property’s southern and eastern exposures.
What is the neighborhood like?
The owner said that the vibrant, friendly community was one of the main things that drew her to the property. It’s a short distance to Forest Park, and there are great restaurants and shops in the area. You can walk to downtown Clayton in about five minutes.
