9847 Waterbury Drive, Ladue
from the homeowners | Nestled in the heart of Ladue in the sought-after Forestgreen Estates neighborhood, 9847 Waterbury Drive is a home built for a family—from the proximity to excellent schools to the backyard oasis that features a patio and pool. The current homeowners have lived in the house for 39 years. It’s where they raised their children and then played with their grandchildren. Now, they’re ready to pass it along to another family ready to make memories.
What attracted you to the property?
Before moving, we lived just around the corner. The location was perfect. It was in our parish, and there is easy access to schools, country clubs and shopping. The neighborhood was developed around 59 years ago, and it’s full of families. It’s been fabulous for us.
Did you make any major renovations?
Yes, the house is completely renovated. We gutted the kitchen and bathrooms when we moved in. Over the years, we also have opened the floor plan, continued to update and redid the patio.
Did you use the outdoor spaces often?
We spend part of the year in Florida, and when we’re in St. Louis, we’ve always enjoyed spending time by the pool and on the patio. It’s the perfect place to spend time with our grandchildren.
How is the home for entertaining?
It’s perfect for a modern family’s lifestyle. The spaces are open and flow into one another. One change we made was getting rid of the formal dining room and creating an eat-in kitchen. It opens to the family and great rooms, and there’s also access to the backyard. It’s my favorite element of the home.
What would you like the next homeowners to know?
It’s a home that was made to be enjoyed by a family. We loved spending time outside in the summer, and the lower level is a great space for indoor activities in the winter. The house worked for us for 39 years. Hopefully, a young family will be able to enjoy it as much as we have.
