As the housing market continues to mend, premiere homes around town are selling almost as quickly as they hit the market. Here, top local real estate agents show some of their biggest accomplishments—and most impressive sales—from the last year.
12970 Woodlark, Town & Country
Mary Beth Benes, Coldwell Banker Gundaker
-Multiple offers came in for this 2-year-old home built on a private cul-de-sac by Bozich Construction, listing agent Mary Beth Benes says, because so many buyers are looking for newer homes in established areas. The traditional design and modern open floor plan were also big draws, she adds.
-Equally impressive are the home’s amenities, including a stunning kitchen and hearth room, enclosed patio, pool, green house, heated 4-car garage and a spacious master suite with a sitting area. It sold for $2.19 million.
710 S. Price Road, Ladue
Mary Rosenblum, Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty
-The exterior of this ‘French country’ home is stone all around, and features a porte-cochere, patio and pool area. After less than six weeks on the market, it sold for $3.2 million.
-In addition to its six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen and finished lower level, this home is located across from John Burroughs High School and features high-quality workmanship on all three levels.
21 Wydown Terrace, Clayton
Mark Gellman and Neil Gellman, The Gellman Team, Coldwell Banker Premier
-Mark Gellman and his brother, Neil, were searching for the perfect home for their client, when they found an interested seller at 21 Wydown Terrace. The house never even made it to the market, and closed in May for $1.23 million.
-Less than a mile from Forest Park and right next to a small park, the home has four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, plus an office and formal living and dining rooms. The previous owners made an addition onto the back of the home, creating a kitchen and open hearth room concept, plus main-floor laundry.
12 Apple Tree Lane, Ladue
Lisa Coulter and Linda Benoist
-The original owners of this 18-year-old house sold to Lisa Coulter and Linda Benoist’s client last summer. The client planned to move to Missouri from California, and renovated much of the home before the relocation fell through. It sold again in early March for $2.995 million.
-In addition to new paint and electrical work, the previous owner partially finished the lower level to add a nanny’s room, plus a playroom for kids. The living and dining room both have French doors opening to the beautiful terrace and gorgeous yard.
7447 York Drive, Clayton
Steve Breihan and Carolyn Malecek, Prudential Alliance Realtors
-This updated home in a sought-after neighborhood “sold immediately” during the open house, listing agent Steve Breihan says, for $575,000—$25,000 more than listing price. In addition to a main-floor family room, attached 2-car garage and a newer kitchen, this beautifully maintained 3-plus bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home has updated furnace, air-conditioning and electrical systems, and great curb appeal.
2 Bellerive Country Club Grounds Drive, Town & Country
Ann Hizar, Laura McCarthy Real Estate
-Everything about this meticulously maintained home is “authentic Williamsburg, Virginia,” says listing agent Anne Hizar. It features 10-foot ceilings, intricate moldings, a gorgeous hearth room and kitchen and French doors opening the back terrace, which overlooks Bellerive’s 17th hole.
-A home theater, backyard pavilion and batting cage in the lower level offer plenty of entertainment opportunities to the new homeowners.
