8300 Kingsbury Blvd., Clayton
from the agent | Agent Julie Lane says one of the most striking features of this lovely home is its many sets of French doors that allow indoor and outdoor spaces to be enjoyed simultaneously. “The dining room, library/den and family room all have beautifully crafted sets of doors,” she notes. “You often see homes with French doors that are meant to be decorative, but in this house, they really are functional. You can leave them open and get a wonderful breeze throughout the house because they are a few steps up from the ground, many with Juliet balconies. And when you are entertaining, they create a wonderful sense of openness and flow.”
What else about the home is geared for entertaining?
There is a large dining room at the front of the house, and the beautiful foyer, sitting room, den and library with fireplace are great spaces for welcoming friends and family as well. The kitchen and family room area is large and light-filled, with an open floor plan that allows plenty of room for guests. All of the ceiling heights are at least 10 feet, creating a very expansive feel.
What are some of the home’s most convenient features?
It offers a good deal of storage, including spacious custom closets and a huge garage with extra room for equipment and supplies. Unfinished areas of the basement can be used for storage, and there is an elevator with access to all floors.
Is the neighborhood walkable and family-friendly?
Yes, it’s perfect for residents who like to be active. You’ll see people out walking all the time, including families with young children and babies in strollers. There is a great mix of neighbors, and it’s easy to walk to Clayton shops and restaurants without having to cross busy streets.
What is the home’s history like?
It was built in 2017, and the original owners bought it while it was under construction, so they were able to choose all of the custom finishes they wanted. They spent about nine months working with the builder, making sure every detail of the home was just right. It’s perfect for that family who would like a new house without having to go through the process of building one.
Describe the landscaping.
It’s really lush and beautiful. The original owners lived all over the world, and they had very cosmopolitan tastes, but they also chose native Missouri plants to make the home’s exterior interesting and attractive.
What else makes the property appealing?
This house checks all of the boxes for buyers who want a home that is adaptable. Its large, open spaces, beautiful floors, attractive moldings and other features provide the perfect canvas for modern or traditional decorating tastes
