T&S Home: 12310 Boothbay Court
We expect a home to be many things: a sanctuary to escape the pressures of the world, a place to raise our families and even a work space. A balance of practicality and comfort can be difficult to find, but 12310 Boothbay Court has managed to strike it beautifully. We asked listing agent Kim Carney to tell us more about what makes the Creve Coeur home a perfect fit.
What is the neighborhood like?
Ladue Downs is a beautiful neighborhood, and I love that this home sits on a cul-de-sac. It’s quiet, friendly and filled with lovely, mature trees. Plus, it’s close to schools, hospitals and highways. It’s the perfect location! Tell me about the outdoor space. Sitting on more than half an acre, the yard is wonderful. It backs to acres of protected forest, so there is plenty of room for the kids to play and pets to roam. It’s also very private. The covered porch and patio are great, too. They’re like two extra rooms that look out to the resort-like yard. It’s really an oasis! The sellers have had many parties on the patio, and they love to sit and watch the deer play. The brick is quite charming, and the lighting makes it very soothing to sit and relax.
What makes the home a good fit for families?
The large mud room is such a nice amenity. It has a planning desk with drawers and cabinets where you can organize all of your bills, schedules and papers. The cubbies are great for coats and shoes, and it has indestructible ceramic tile. There also is plenty of room for extra storage, an extra fridge, laundry or any other needs. The walkout lower level has great space. There’s an extra bedroom, gym and huge family room with theater. There’s also a full kitchen, so it’s a great place for guests or live-in nannies. It’s also a great area for kids because it has a game room and plenty of space to hang out. Plus, the yard is like a soccer field in the back. It’s a kid’s (and adult’s!) dream yard!
What are some unique features?
The gourmet kitchen has been updated with new custom cabinets, granite countertops, high-end appliances, a center island and built-in banquet. It has beautiful windows that offer wonderful, natural light. The kitchen is off the family room, which has a cozy fireplace and box-beam ceiling. It also opens to the covered porch and fabulous yard. The new master bath is amazing, too.
How is the property for entertaining?
The home is perfect for parties. It has a nice blend of formal and informal rooms with a great flow. The beautiful patio and covered porch are right off the kitchen and family room, and the lower level has a lot of space to accommodate guests.
