from the homeowners | Overlooking Oak Knoll Park, One Tuscany Park offers a convenient location, a beautiful lot and luxury amenities. The current homeowners custom-designed the Clayton property to be the perfect place for their family to grow together. They’re now ready for a new family to make the unique home their own.

What attracted you to the neighborhood?
For our kids, we were looking to live close to a park. Not only is there a private park in the subdivision, the home is across from Oak Knoll Park. We loved that about the neighborhood. It’s also so close to schools, shopping and Washington University.

Were there any features you wanted to include when designing the home?
We wanted a large enough lot to have everything we needed on the first floor, including laundry and the master suite. We worked with architect Lauren Strutman and DeBrecht Homes to build the home. We used the finest materials, including bricks imported from Pennsylvania, and the home is well insulated so even though Big Bend Boulevard is close to the house, it’s quiet. I’m an IT consultant, so it also was important to me that the home had all of the latest technology—from appliances and lighting to the sound system and thermostat. It’s pretty much a smart home, and it’s designed in a way that can be updated in the future, so you don’t have to worry about it becoming outdated.

Do you have a favorite room?
The living room and kitchen combination is our favorite space. We spend a lot of time there. For the kids, it’s probably the theater on the lower level. It has a top-of-the-line projector and a surround sound system. They watch a lot of movies in that room.

How is the home for entertaining?
We’ve hosted quite a few parties both indoors and outdoors. The sound system goes to the back yard, and the patio space is very nice for guests. The lower level also is an entertainment center. We designed it to include a lot of built-in spaces. Along with a gym and the theater, there is a living room and bar. If we aren’t in the kitchen, it’s where most activities and parties happen.

What do you most want the next homeowners to know?
It’s a quality custom build that is a unique find in Clayton. We didn’t want to cut any corners. I remember the owner of DeBrecht Homes was on-site every day, and he chose all of the lumber that was used in the house. It’s a top-of-the-line property that is ready for a new family.
