Found in the heart of Clayton, this gorgeous Sante Fe-style residence, with yellow stucco and warm interiors, proves itself worthy of making your own. Beamed ceilings greet you inside the spacious living room, alongside a wrought-iron staircase. Flowing archways invite you to further explore the abode, from the carnelian-colored dining room to the finished walk-out lower level, with heated slate tile. The modern kitchen is a definite draw, with fabulous amenities, like a DCS gas range and oven, warming drawer and Viking wine fridge. Display your pride and joy in the sleekly designed garage, with a California-style see-through door and gleaming stained concrete floor – a showcase worthy of housing a Shelby Cobra or other treasure. And finally, you can unwind inside the luxurious master bath, with custom shower tile and doors, plus a separate jetted tub. The extensively updated 1920s abode makes it easy to imagine living in an exotic locale with high-class amenities at your fingertips.

This 4-bedroom, 3-full-bathroom and 1-half-bathroom home in Clayton is listed for $939,900.
