May—August 2019, St. Louis home close to Wash U, Clayton, easy to SLU

Our beautiful contemporary home is located in a quiet, sought-after neighborhood, just outside Clayton and only minutes from Washington University. SLU, UMSL, and Webster are all within easy reach.

A two-minute walk to the west will bring you to our own little business center where you'll find Momo's Greek Restaurant, Frida's Deli (vegetarian, vegan, gluten free), Dewey's Pizza, Tutti Frutti Yogurt, Starbucks, D's Yoga Home, The Center of Mind, Body & Spirit, Big River Running Store, the spinning gym Pedal Pedal, dry cleaners, bank, and a hair salon. And just to the east you will find Winslow's Home, a farm-to-table restaurant and country store all rolled into one.

Beyond that it’s just a short hop by car or bike to the University City Loop or the Clayton restaurant and business district, where you will find music venues, ethnic and traditional restaurants, libraries, an independent movie house, grocery stores, libraries, shops, bookstores, banks, and much much more.

Nearby local parks include playgrounds, fitness center, and swimming pool. Forest Park is a short drive or cycle away. This majestic park is home St. Louis’s finest cultural attractions: zoo, art museum, history museum, science museum—and admission is free!

Our mid-century 3-bedroom, 2-bath home has been beautifully updated. The light-filled living and dining room feature hardwood floors, a stylish fireplace, and Chicago windows that look out onto the front and back yards. There is also a lovely sunroom with wicker furniture, carpeting and air conditioning. A full bath, office with a grand piano, and modernized kitchen complete the first floor. Upstairs are two large bedrooms, also with hardwood floors, and a full bath. A sofa-sleeper upstairs can accommodate two extra guests.

The sunroom, deck, and ground-level patio provide many options for enjoying the outdoors. A peaceful bamboo grove screens the fenced-in rear garden. Relax and enjoy the sanctuary of our garden sitting in our Baltic Sea wicker cabana. Lawn care is included in the rent.

Ample parking is available in front of the home and in the driveway, and our home is only a block from a city bus stop and just a few blocks from a Metro stop.
