A 4-bedroom, 3-bath home in Clayton is listed for $1.35 million.

Designed in 1924 by the Hoener, Baum & Froese architectural firm, this 4,700-square-foot Spanish Revival home features ornamental ironwork, leaded glass and inlaid marble tile floors. Thoughtful updates complement and preserve original details, such as built-in bookcases and several fireplaces, while making the home ideal for today's lifestyles. Of course, that means a gorgeous new kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, custom cabinetry and a breakfast bar. Upstairs, the master suite includes a spacious bath with double sinks and a separate shower and tub. An alarm system and an invisible dog fence keep the whole family safe. Located in the Claverach Park neighborhood just off Clayton Road, the home is within walking distance of schools, shopping and restaurants.
